An open letter to Arizona physics and chemistry teachers in high school and community college:
Would you like me to subscribe you to TCHRS, the listserv for Arizona physics and chemistry teachers/faculty?
Most physics teachers choose to get each email as it is posted. (Typically one each day.)
However, if you are inundated with e-mail, you could choose to get ONE e-mail each week: on Tuesday mornings. It is a DIGEST: a list of all the subject headings posted in the previous week, with the actual email below.
Please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org .
* Tell me if you would rather get a weekly digest.
* Tell me what e-mail address to use.
Ingrid Novodvorsky, Physics at the U of A, and I maintain TCHRS. I have managed it for 20 years.
Of course it's FREE.
TCHRS is a good venue for keeping informed about
* local and statewide events for physics & chemistry teachers/faculty,
* teaching job openings in chemistry and physics,
* grant opportunities,
* our ASU summer graduate program for teachers of physics and chemistry, and
* groups for high school & TYC science teachers: STEMtchrsPhx, and AZ-AAPT.
Occasionally teachers post on topics of concern to the physics & chemistry community.
TCHRS has over 1000 subscribers, including many high school physics, chem, & physical science teachers; several ASU, NAU, and U of A physics & astronomy faculty, 100 physics/astronomy & chemistry faculty at community colleges, and several at private colleges. A few middle school science teachers subscribe too; they are typically leaders.
TCHRS is entirely private (not published); you never get any SPAM. Your e-mail address remains private, too.
In sum, TCHRS is a good 'community' resource for you!
Just information -- not conversation. Why? To keep the volume down, so we aren't inundated with e-mails.
