Graduate Teaching Fellows Teachers and High School Partnerships 2005-06
The ESF Science Corps

The NFS/ ESF Science Corps Graduate Fellows are science resources for all the ESF in the High School Global Environment college credit bearing course.

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.

Teachers and Graduate Fellows participate in mentoring and professional development activities with ESF faculty beginning with a three day articulation meeting in August. This year the Graduate Fellows designed and conducted mini replicable research projects, at Heiberg Forest, then discussed how this could be incorporated in the Global Environment course.

The ESF in the High School teachers, who earn the appointment of an ESF adjunct instructor, partner with the Graduate Fellows on two levels as either a Primary School or Participating School.

Primary Schools

The Primary Schools’ teachers and the Graduate Fellow partner for approximately 12 weeks during the Fall and/or Spring semesters. Together they develop inquiry-based activities, to infuse scientific research and literature reflecting the themes of the Global Environment course. In addition the Graduate Fellows mentor the students as they conduct original research to be presented at the Environmental Summit.
