Graduate Teaching Fellows Teachers and High School Partnerships 2004-05
The ESF Science CorpsThe NSF grant expands to all ESF in the High School Global Environment college credit-bearing courses.
The Graduate Teaching Fellows are science resources to the ESF in the High Schools teachers and assist in infusing scientific research and literature through inquiry-based activities into the ESF in the High School college credit-bearing Global Environment course. The ESF in the High Schools include the Syracuse City School District, and Central New York suburban and rural school districts.
The ESF in the High School schools have two levels of interaction with the Graduate Fellows. They are either a Primary School or a Participating School. The 10 Primary Schools’ teachers are partnered with a Graduate Fellow for approximately 12 weeks during the Fall and/or Spring semesters. The Graduate Fellow will partner with the 13 participating schools teachers for several weeks during each of the Fall and Spring Semesters. The Graduate Fellows have prepared 24 inquiry-based activities for the Participating Schools’ teachers to infuse into their Global Environment course.
The ESF in the High School Teachers are qualified high school teachers who must earn an appointment as an ESF adjunct instructor. They teach the ESF college credit-bearing Global Environment course in their school as part of the high school schedule enabling students to experience the challenge of doing college level course work and earn college credit. Teachers participate in mentoring and professional development activities with ESF faculty and Graduate Teaching Fellows.
