Still not sure about writing for a professional journal? 

It's easy. Just sit down at your word processor and write an article for the Florida Association of Science Teachers (FAST) journal, The Florida Science Teacher. 

Ideas for writing journal articles

  1. Innovations: descriptions of innovative classroom procedures that have been tried and proven successful;
  2. Activities: practical, how-to articles which describe the procedures and materials for teaching certain concepts;
  3. Methods: techniques such as questioning, using learning centers, developing a lab program, etc.;
  4. Research: syntheses or reports of research meaningful to science teaching, perhaps from graduate studies;
  5. News: announcements of seminars, conferences, or special publications.
  6. Specific Content: articles or photographs focused on a specific area of science content; e.g., energy crisis, genetic engineering, or glaciation;
  7. Reports/comments: factors influencing science education on the national and/or state level; e.g., new curricula, textbook adoptions, or certification requirements.

Articles should be limited to 1,500 words.

Pictures may be included with the article. A signed release form must be obtained from parents of students shown in the pictures. Students must wear the appropriate safety apparel and/or equipment.

Please note:  If your article is chosen to be published in a FAST Journal, the FAST organization does not take ownership of the article that you submitted for publication.  You as the author still retain the ownership of the article you wrote.
