Spotlights on STEM Topics

Beginning in the earliest grades, DRK-12 projects are promoting access to and success in Algebra for all students, through pre-service training and professional learning opportunities for teachers, instructional materials, assessments, learning technologies, interventions for at-risk students, and other innovations. This Spotlight includes a perspective piece by a second grade educator who reflects on her experience with early algebra education as well as needs and strategies for improvement. It also highlights the work of and products of DRK-12 projects and offers additional resources for those interested in learning more.

In this spotlight, explore the types of partnerships, methodologies, theoretical frameworks, challenges and strategies that support work enacting reforms on a systemic level. This Spotlight includes a perspective piece by Suzanne Donovan and Alan Schoenfeld, highlights the work of seven projects, and offers additional resources for those interested in learning more.

This Spotlight provides examples of NSF-funded programs that show promise for educating future generations of scientifically literate and engineering-talented adults.
