Current Issue

We are very excited about this special, peer reviewed, Spring 2014 issue of The Earth Scientist (TES). This issue contains 7 articles. Six were written by authors who were presenters at the 2013 American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) Geoscience Information For Teachers (GIFT) workshop. The authors have written about their GIFT presentations, in an effort to share them with you.

The seventh article was written by the staff working in and/or with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Office of Education. This NOAA article describes the many opportunities for teachers to use NOAA resources and to participate in NOAA’s Professional Development opportunities.

We are sure that you will find, within these 7 highly informative articles, something that will enhance your knowledge as well as something that will translate into immediate use in your own classroom.
