Science CTS Supplement Search

CTS maintains a supplementary database of resources.The resources are content specific and can be used to supplement a specific CTS topic. For example, if you are a teacher conducting an individual study or you are designing a CTS for professional development on the CTS topic of Seasons, you might search for an article in the supplementary database to enhance your study. By selecting Astronomy under "Category", Seasons under "CTS Topic", and Journal Article"under "Resource Type" and then clicking the "Apply" button, you will come across the web-based article, Learning About Seasons- A Guide for Teachers and Curriculum Developers. Clicking on the title of the resource will then give you the full description of how it can be used with CTS. Each time a new science supplement is posted, it will appear in the Science Supplement box on the CTS home page.
