STEMteachersNYC is excited to announce that we have launched a partnership with New Visions for Public Schools, a non-profit which has designed, created and sustained NYC public schools for 25 years with 80 schools now under its wing. STEMteachersNYC former and upcoming board members, Kelly O’Shea and Mark Schober are working on creating a new course: “High School Physics,” that fits well with the needs of NYC public schools and which incorporates current best practices in teaching.
Kelly and Mark worked together this past summer and have produced materials covering “Forces and Motion” – the focus of the initial month or two of most courses. They will be working on developing materials for many of the remaining topics in existing courses, with close attention to the NYSSLS and the NGSS and to the evolving plans for revising the Regents Exam.
The “High School Physics” materials are being released on the New Visions website while in development. We invite interested teachers to gain access to view, download, try out, and comment on the materials by completing the form HERE.
