GeoReadingForEquity is a group of geoscience graduate students, faculty, and researchers spanning multiple institutions who are passionate about improving equity and access in the field. The website provides a compilation of resources and serves as a repository of material including: 1) the background of inequity in STEM higher education, 2) particular geoscience/earth science equity issues, and 3) strategies and resources for facilitating hard conversations.
The mission of the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science at the University at Buffalo is to promote the development and dissemination of materials and practices for case teaching in the sciences. The website provides access to an award-winning collection of peer-reviewed case studies. The Center offers a five-day summer workshop and a two-day fall conference to train faculty in the case method of teaching science. In addition, the Center is actively engaged in educational research to assess the impact of the case method on student learning.
Science News for Students (formerly Science News for Kids) publishes award-winning journalism on research across the breadth of science, health and technology fields. It aims to bring these new developments to a younger audience. Published daily, Science News for Students posts both shorter news stories and longer features, all written with a vocabulary and sentence structure aimed at readers 9 to 14 years old. The breadth of technical subjects and tone attracts many advanced readers as well. Our stories highlight ongoing research in fields ranging from astronomy to zoology. (Science News for Students does not publish original scientific results.) Stories are reported by experienced science journalists, many with PhDs in the fields on which they write.
If you are looking for online STEM reading, writing and at-home activities, the Science News in High Schools online library offers nearly 200 teaching exercises that apply core curricular high school standards by highlighting current news in science.
Unlearning Racism in Geoscience (URGE) is a community-wide journal-reading and policy-design curriculum to help geoscientists unlearn racism and improve accessibility, justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (AJEDI) in the discipline. URGE’s primary objectives are to (1) deepen the community’s knowledge of the effects of racism on the participation and retention of Black, Brown, and Indigenous people in Geoscience, (2) draw on existing literature, expert opinions, and personal experiences to develop anti-racist policies and strategies, and (3) share, discuss, and modify anti-racist policies and strategies within a dynamic community network and on a national stage.
