Award Description: ARRA - TRANS-NSF RECOVERY ACT RESEARCH SUPPORT
Project Description: Project Description The Robert Noyce Mathematics and Science Teachers (MaST) Scholars program at York College was created to meet the critical need for highly qualified mathematics and science teachers in New York City schools. The collaborators on the project include the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Physical Sciences, and Mathematics and Computer Studies, and Teacher Education of York College, Borough of Manhattan Community College, Bronx Community College, LaGuardia Community College, and Queensborough Community College of the City University of New York (CUNY) in partnership with the New York City Department of Education. The primary objective of this program is the development of approximately 50 highly qualified teachers for high-need urban schools through targeted financial and academic support. For York College Teacher Education students, the most significant financial burden comes during student teaching, which requires them to quit full time employment. Thus, the scholarship will focus on financial support during this year, with academic support and development programs from post-freshman summer through second year of teaching. Intellectual Merit The academic support program includes three critical phases: 1) engagement of potential Scholars in a Teacher Explorer summer program, 2) support and development of the Scholars during the completion of their college education and teacher preparation program, and 3) professional development and support of teachers during their first two years in the classroom. The MaST program involves Scholars and faculty in both STEM and Teacher Education research. As part of extensive field experience, the Scholars will create research-based curriculum for underrepresented urban students.
