Extracts from "News" regularly emailed to physics teachers

This email newsletter has been operating since 2003. While many newsletter items have been on forthcoming events for students and teachers, there have been many items of ongoing value on resources, teaching strategies, etc. These have been combined into this one document.

The newsletter has also contained short news items on current physics research and technological developments that might be of interest to teachers and students. The stories can be accessed through either of the two files. The items can be used to add relevance to classroom presentations or used for topical classroom displays.
