AAAS Project 2061
Do you have studies of, or data on, student learning outcomes as a
result of your GK12 project? AAAS Project 2061 is particularly
interested in middle and high school students' learning of concepts
related to chemical reactions or, more specifically, photosynthesis, but
information on other content areas would be useful as well. It would
also be helpful to have a description of the extent and nature of the
GK-12 fellows' work in the relevant classrooms. Email Mary Koppal with any data you can provide.
Dr. Charlene D'Avanzo, at Hampshire College, would like contact information for GK-12 graduate fellows who have published articles on their GK-12 work in peer-reviewed journals. Email Dr. D'Avanzo if you have information to share.
Know It When I See It: Assessing Presentation Skills and
Florida Tech's InSTEP program has developed a protocol
for assessing graduate teaching fellows' presentation
skills. It consists of:
- Context and Criteria for Assessing GK-12 Graduate Teaching
Fellows' Presentation Skills;
- Rubric for Assessing GK-12 Graduate Teaching Fellows'
Presentation Skills; and
- Record Sheet for Assessing GK-12 Graduate Teaching
Fellows' Presentation Skills.
The purpose is to help fellows effectively present scientific
information to non-scientific audiences—students,
teachers, parents, community members, or colleagues. The
presentation can be a traditional lecture or interactive
with audience Q&A. Details on the development and
use of the protocol are available on the InStep
or from Richard Tankersley,
