VolsTeach for Appalachia

NSF Awards: 1758325

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6, Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12, Undergraduate

Our video presentation highlights the need that brought about the VolsTeach for Appalachia project: The shortage of math and science teachers in East Tennessee. The overarching goal of this NSF-funded project is to support community college students, through unique experiences, in becoming outstanding STEM teachers in rural East Tennessee schools. We share the key features of the project from a K-12 student's point of view. These key features include recruitment through internships and courses that introduce STEM teaching early on and teacher preparation that focuses on K-12 students (who they are and who they would like to be), math and science content, and the characteristics and interests of our East Tennessee communities. Thank you for checking out our presentation.
