Poster | Supporting Urban Science Teachers in Making Instructional Decisions to Facilitate Project-Based Learning for All Students
Objective: The Next Generation Science Standards affirm an important vision for science education: Science for all students (AAAS, 1994; NRC, 2012b). In this vision, teachers engage students in three-dimensional (3D) learning by braiding scientific content with scientific and engineering practices and crosscutting concepts while fostering inclusive science classrooms. This approach aims to...

Poster | Online Video-Based Lesson Analysis Professional Development to Support High School Science Teaching About Energy (EMAT)
Objectives: We designed and studied an online, video-based, lesson analysis professional development (PD) course focused on energy concepts. The first goal of the project was to enhance teacher knowledge and practice related to energy concepts to ultimately improve student learning. The second goal was to study the promise of efficacy of the various components of the course in enhancing teacher...

Poster | Understanding Teacher Learning in a Virtual Learning Community: A Mixed-Methods Approach
Do teachers learn from classroom video clips on an online professional development site beyond what they indicate in the posted commentary? By comparing quantitative web usage data plus coded online video comments to qualitative interview data from 41 users of the Everyday Mathematics Virtual Learning Community (VLC), we hope to understand what, and to what extent, individual users learn from...

Poster | Situating Professional Development in the Context of Live Instruction: Teachers’ Learning Through Legitimate Peripheral Participation
Objectives & Perspectives: This project addresses a fundamental challenge for professional development––how to support teachers to improve their practice. Decades of research have demonstrated that many common approaches to professional development do not adequately support improvements in teachers’ capabilities (e.g., Cohen & Hill, 2001; Garet et. al, 2001; Tyler, 1971). In response,...

Project Spotlight | Visual Representations in Mathematics
Visual representations (VRs) are used in mathematics to help students solve problems or understand abstract ideas. Graphing data, placing numbers in a line, or drawing out a word problem are all examples of using VRs. Several NSF-funded projects within the DRK–12 portfolio are using VRs to enhance mathematical understanding. In this Spotlight, CADRE asks five mathematics education projects to...
