It Happened To Me: Perspectives from MSP Teacher Participants

Abstract

"How People Learn made the important observation that students get turned on to science between the fourth and sixth grades, and minority students are particularly vulnerable to early school influences. Minority Student Pipeline-Math Science Partnership (MSP) 2 is a multifaceted partnership between a large-urban school district, a university system (which includes 4-year institutions), and a community college. A major project focus is the impact of ongoing, high quality inquiry science professional development on middle school teaching and learning. This presentation centers on the experiences of MSP teacher participants and offers an opportunity for teachers to share specific examples of how MSP has affected their practice. More importantly, this panel of teachers will describe challenges and successes that MSP innovations have had on student achievement and interest in science."
