Description

The'issue' of there being only limited time available to teachers for the development of teaching and learning resources has been with us a long time. This article outlines the rationale behind the development of online teaching resources that are freely available on the Earth Science Teachers' Association (ESTA) website and introduces readers to two particular resources, GEOTREX and STEGO. These are both hosted on the website and provide easily downloadable and printable teaching resources designed specifically for Earth science teachers by Earth science teachers.
