NSF Graduate Teaching Fellows in K-12 Education
(GK-12 Program)
  • Funding from NSFs Division of Graduate Education
  • NSF developed the GK-12 program recognizing that,
    in addition to being competent researchers, STEM
    graduate students must be able to communicate
    science and research to a variety of audiences.
    (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)
  • Provides Fellowships to train graduate
    researchers in STEM disciplines in K-12 science
    education

4
The GK-12 Program
  • The GK-12 Fellows bring their research and
    experience into the K-12 classroom to develop
    skills which enable them to explain science to
    people of all ages, ranging from students to
    teachers.
  • Through inquiry-based teaching graduate students
    also inspire transformation in the K-12 learning
    environments and stimulate interest in science
    among students

5
Unique Aspects of CCUs Program
  • All Fellows from the Coastal Marine And Wetland
    Studies Program
  • Fellows will incorporate their original thesis
    based research into some lesson plans
  • One half of the teachers will be funded to
    conduct research with their Fellow during Summer
    2010

6
Benefits for the Teachers
  • Teachers are teamed with a scientist for the
    academic year. Fellows are not teaching interns.
  • Current and on-going coastal research is
    introduced in the classroom.
  • Inquiry based activities are developed that the
    teacher can use each year.
  • benefits are listed
  • on the application

7
Responsibilities of the Teachers
  • The main responsibility of a GK-12 teacher is to
    work with their Fellow to create a classroom
    where scientific learning is enhanced through the
    introduction of standards based inquiry lessons
    and activities.
