JESS: Professionally Reviewed Original High School Research
High school teachers looking to incentivize student research and promote inquiry have a recently created tool in their arsenal. The Journal of Experimental Secondary Science (JESS) gives students the opportunity to submit research articles, which are critically reviewed by experts. This prestigious journal publishes several times a year. The articles are free-of-charge to access and can be used in the classroom to supplement learning. Resources that help guide students through the research process are available through the main site. High school students from around the country are welcome to submit.
Recently, I accepted an invitation to write an editorial for JESS. Feel free to read that here:
"Encouraging Authentic Learning Experiences."
