The Role of STEM Teacher-Leaders in Student Success


"Our goal is to equip teachers in STEM disciplines, via teacher-leaders, to optimize student success through pedagogical content knowledge and a more fully developed support structure. From our perspective, student success is graduation and passing high stakes tests, but also perceiving a supportive classroom environment which communicates the applicability of mathematics to life.
1. We developed a long-term data set measuring direct teacher content knowledge (which has a well-established correlation to student success).
2. We studied how teacher-leaders providing professional development interpret and respond to the pedagogical needs of recipients.
3. We developed a case study to investigate horizontal curricular integration in an alternate cultural setting to better inform curriculum innovation for future teacher-leader training."
