In this 90-minute webinar hosted by AAAS ARISE, we heard from two Noyce PIs about designing curriculum for teacher leaders and pre-service teachers.
First, Dr. Jeremy Zelkowski discussed curriculum design for a Noyce Track 3 Master Teacher Fellowship program. Planning a curricular design well in advance of a Noyce Track 3 submission requires careful attention to the sequencing, lengthy discussions with teachers and stakeholders, and most importantly, data collection and measures that will provide strong evidence of how the project will be meeting the goals and objectives of the project. This presentation discussed the steps our proposal took in the planning period as well as the early years of implementation. Tips and suggestions on developing a competitive Master Teacher Fellowship will be discussed.
Next, Dr. Paige Evans along with Jacqueline Ekeoba discussed the teachHOUSTON program at the University of Houston which is a secondary STEM teacher preparation program for STEM majors and degree holders. They highlighted how they transformed their coursework to become more culturally responsive and inquiry-based as a part of their NSF sponsored Noyce programs. They also discussed their culturally responsive and inquiry-based classroom management course.
