Title: The History and Nature of Science
Url: http://www.nsta.org/publications/news/story.aspx?id=49969
Publisher: National Science Teachers Association
Description: The history of science is chock-full of fascinating stories and getting young people involved in this vast panorama of discovery and innovation can be quite easy with some of these resources. Created by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), this series of articles makes teaching and learning about science history a snap. Some of the articles are accessible only to NSTA members, but there's enough free content here to make this site worthwhile. First up is the excellent piece "Technology and Society: Their Impact on Each Other," which is designed to help students learn about the relationship between these two facets of human existence. "Making Things Visible" is a great meditation by Roxanne Greitz Miller and Robert C. Calfee on the importance of teaching science as a process, complete with experimentation, success, and failure.
