"HazCom: Chemicals From Foreign Suppliers:"

Although U.S. business and industry (including school science labs) covered by the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (1910.1200) are permitted to use, store or distribute chemicals purchased from foreign suppliers, they must ensure the chemicals’ corresponding Safety Data Sheets are compliant. Check this out for off-shore chemicals you purchase for your lab. Make sure you receive the SDSs for your employees use upon receiving all chemicals!!

Personalizing Professional Development: How empowered teachers can take charge of professional learning and growth

Posted: April 4, 2019

McREL CEO Bryan Goodwin teams up with ASCD authors Pete Hall and Alisa Simeral to tackle a question of urgent interest to teachers at all career stages: Can professional learning be better? It can, they argue, if the profession recognizes that large PD sessions should be followed up with a highly personalized plan of action. Reflection holds the key to identifying and addressing problems of practice as teachers advance in their skills. Also important to bear in mind: Teachers are most effective when they develop an understanding of why certain techniques work, not just what they are.

"Safety Guidelines for Chemical Demonstrations" (by the American Chemical Society Division of Chemical Education.) Appropriate physical and chemical demonstrations in the classroom or in a public venue have both educational and motivational value and are a long-standing pedagogy in chemical education. Science and STEM teachers planning chemical demonstrations have a responsibility to follow and document SAFER laboratory practices for each demonstration. Science leadership have the responsibility to work with their supervisees to make certain this protocol is in place: https://pubs.acs.org/doi/suppl/10.1021/acs.jchemed.7b00802/suppl_file/ed7b00802_si_001.pdf
