Spring 2009 Newsletter | Welcome To CADRE

A public thanks to the CADRE Advisory Group, who met in Boston for several days in May. With their guidance and thoughtful recommendations, we were able to confirm that many of our plans were, in fact, on target. We also learned that we had to think longer and harder about other ideas. The meeting concluded with one important marching order: as frequently as possible, CADRE supports (meetings,...

CADRE Fellow Entry | Benjamin Wiles
Construction of substantial theories of teacher learning guides the development of effective strategies to bolster the knowledge of current and future teachers across the domains of STEM. To impact student learning in a STEM field, teachers must have not only STEM content knowledge but also parallel STEM pedagogical content knowledge. Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics have been...

CADRE Fellow Entry | Scott Strother
What I enjoyed most about the 2009 DR-K12 PI Meeting was the cooperative nature of the sessions. Rather than hearing about one research project per session (e.g., the way many conferences are organized), we were immersed in discussions around a topic and how our research addresses that topic. As a CADRE fellow, this allowed me to hear several points of view around a particular body of work, as...

CADRE Fellow Entry | Sytil Murphy
There were several questions and comments asked either by the plenary speakers or audience members in the question/answer sessions that sparked my interest. Suzanne Wilson commented that the “educational system focuses on what it can (or thinks it can) control,” with, in this case, the focus being on controlling teacher (or teaching) quality. An audience member asked how two exceptional teachers...

CADRE Fellow Entry | David M. Majerich
While rivers have often been a backdrop for musical, theatrical, song, and dance productions, as well as for literature, no metaphor other than that of a river could better serve to represent the flow of ideas about the innovative research topics shared at the 2009 Discovery Research K-12 Principal Investigator meeting in Washington, D.C. Clearly, the headwaters of the DR-K12 river of research...

CADRE Fellow Entry | Cynthia D’Angelo
One of the over-arching themes that I noticed during the meeting was an awareness of and desire for good measurements. Some researchers were more focused on measuring student learning in a meaningful way, while others were looking at how we can recognize and foster good teaching. This theme was brought up in a variety of places, from SIG meetings, panel discussions, and observations while walking...

CADRE Fellow Entry | Leigh Arino de la Rubia
During a plenary session of the 2009 DR-K12 PI meeting, a description of the emphases in K-12 education over time described the role of teacher quality in the last decade. Many of the presentations during this year’s meeting emphasized the importance of teacher quality, sharing their groups’ solutions to the teacher quality equation through innovative teacher preparation programs, induction...
