Scientists and Teachers Engaging in Professional Development with University ...

GC18-017 ESEA

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12, Adult learners

The Scientists and Teachers Engaging in Professional Development with University Personnel (STEPD-UP) Professional Development (PD) program is an innovative approach to bridging the gap between Stony Brook University and the Brentwood Union Free School District, Long Island New York.  This hands-on US Department of Education, ESEA, Title II Math Science Partnership Grant sponsored by New York State Department of Education engages middle school teachers and bilingual teachers, grades 7-9 in hands-on learning.  We showcase teachers working with scientists to engage in exploration of New York State Learning Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.   Through exploration in Long Island’s salt marshes and marine ecosystems we dovetail NGSS Engineering Design standards with Matter and Energy in Organisms and Ecosystems. STEPD-UP showcases teachers engaging in the process of “Let’s Science That!”.  With the assistance of professors from Stony Brook University’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Department of Ecology and Evolution facilitate we showcase educators developing models, collecting data and designing experiments to be used with their students.   In our video, teachers become scientists with the assistance of University Personnel.   STEPD-UP helps teachers implement new standards, develop confidence, and engage in meaningful collaboration of innovative ideas, skills and expertise with their colleagues and University professors.
