Selected works by KSTF Fellows and staff
Nicole Gillespie, Jodie Galosy, Roseanne Rostock and Zora WolfE presented “Supporting and Retaining High Quality Secondary Science Teachers: Evidence from the Knowles Science Teaching Foundation” at the 2012 National Association for Research in Science Teaching (NARST) Annual Conference. The KSTF team also presented four papers at the Conference:
Nicole Gillespie conducted a poster presentation about the KSTF program at the 2012 Science and Mathematics Teacher Imperative (SMTI) conference.
A chapter titled "The Importance of Collaboration to New Teacher Development: Two Central Features of an Induction Fellowship" by Mathematics Teacher Developers Rachael Eriksen Brown, Jennifer L. Mossgrove and Jeanne M. Vissa was included in the NCTM 2012 Yearbook, Professional Collaborations in Mathematics Teaching and Learning: Seeking Success for All (pp. 103-116).
Physical Science Teacher Developer Howard Glasser recently had an article titled "The Numbers Speak: Physics First Supports Math Performance" published in The Physics Teacher.
Physical Science Teacher Developer Howard Glasser recently published a paper titled "Arguing Separate but Equal: A Study of Argumentation in Public Single-Sex Science Classes in the United States" in the International Journal of Gender, Science and Technology. Read the abstract here.
2010 KSTF Biology Teaching Fellow Helen Snodgrass authored an article titled “Perspectives of High-Achieving Women on Teaching” in The New Educator. In this piece, Helen explores what high-achieving women are looking for in a career and why fewer high-achieving women are entering teaching.
KSTF Research Alumna Dr. Laurie Rubel co-authored an article “Learning to Map & Mapping to Learn Students’ Worlds” in the April 2011 issue of Mathematics Teacher.
2006 KSTF Mathematics Teaching Fellow Nicole Hubbard co-authored an article "Uganda Unpacked" in the Spring 2010 issue of UnBoxed.
KSTF Alumna Anne Watson co-published an article titled "Students for Sustainable Energy" in the April/May 2010 issue of The Science Teacher.
Jason Gipson-Nahman (2006 Physical Science Fellow) has been invited to contribute a commentary for the forthcoming book The American Public School Teacher: Past, Present and Future, which will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the National Education Association’s Status of the American Public School Teacher survey series. The invited commentators include well-known scholars and policymakers in education, such as Linda Darling-Hammond, Gloria Ladson-Billings and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. Jason is one of six classroom teachers who will contribute a commentary.
Mathematics Teacher Developer Rachael Brown had a guest editorial published in the University of Georgia’s student-produced journal, The Mathematics Educator, and an article published in Elementary School Journal.
