The American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) was created in 1930, and their primary vision is "to be the leader in physics education." Over the years, they have expanded their vision and they remain interested in improving the pedagogical skills and physics knowledge of teachers at all levels and increasing the diversity and numbers of physics teachers and students. The homepage offers opportunities for interested parties to connect with the AAPT via various social media networks and a list of thematic sections, including "Teaching", "Students", and "Careers". Some of the materials on the site are only available to AAPT members, but the "Resources" area has many publicly available materials. The materials here include reviews of high school physics texts, video guides, and articles like "Preparing High School Physics Teachers". Additionally, the site also includes links to AAPT partner websites and email discussion lists.
