MSPs: How K-12/College Partnerships Have Improved Chemistry Instruction
The establishment of Math and Science Partnership programs in the wake of NCLB has led to many shifts in post-secondary attitudes about K-12 teaching in areas related to chemistry. The purpose of this symposium is to share MSP experiences from college faculty and K-12 teachers and how they have informed:
Use of inquiry pedagogy;
High school/college transition and the problems of readiness and retention;
Structure of professional development programs;
Pre-service science curricula;
and other topics of related interest.
