Resource File

 

The purpose of creating a resource file is to provide you with a set of organized materials to use in your intended teaching practice.  As a beginning teacher you will be overwhelmed with responsibilities and duties.  Possession of accessible science materials will be valuable to you as you begin teaching.  You will continue to add to this collection throughout your career.

I suggest a three ring binder or file folders and a plastic tub or box with materials you have collected to use to teach science.
