The RESULT: Preparing teachers for Culturally Relevant STEM
The purpose of our NSF Noyce Capacity Building project was to build the university’s capacity for recruiting, retaining, and preparing STEM education students to better meet the increasing demand for STEM teachers in Illinois. The goals were to better prepare teachers to succeed in educating youth in culturally diverse settings and improving content literacy of STEM teacher candidates in relevant STEM fields. This presentation will describe models and results from professional development and collaborations with local school agencies and community colleges to broaden participation in STEM through culturally sustaining pedagogies and content area literacy strategies.
