2014-15 University-School Teacher Education Partnership (USTEP) Grants Announced

Five new University-School Teacher Education partnership (USTEP) grants in the amount of $3,000 each were recently awarded for the following projects in collaboration with local school districts. As part of these grants, UNCG faculty work collaboratively with Piedmont area schools to provide pro bono support for these projects:

  • Dr. Ye He (TEHE) will work with Asheboro City Schools to support their Heritage Language Academy (HLA) activities this year. This program will serve about 40 elementary and middle grade students and their parents, and includes refinement of the HLA curriculum with participating teachers, plus an action research study about the impact of the Heritage Language Academy. SOE students will also be invited to assist with HLA activities next Spring.
  • Dr. Bev Faircloth (TEHE) and a Middle Grades colleague will assist the Mathematics teachers at Jackson Middle School teachers in Guilford County as they co-develop a Math Professional Learning Community (PLC) to focus on formative assessment and students’ mathematical thinking. Together they plan to present at the Triad Teacher Research (TTR) Conference on Reading Day next spring and to work to publish an article about their Mathematics PLC efforts.
  • Dr. Katherine Ennis (KIN) and Dr. Randy Schmitz (KIN) will assist in designing the curriculum for Meadowview Magnet Middle School teachers who will be teaching a new 6th-8th integrated Science/Health unit about Human Body Mechanics next spring. Jeff Edwards, Science Institute Coordinator for Surry County Schools, will provide the professional development.
  • Dr. Holt Wilson (TEHE) and graduate student Jared Webb (TEHE) will co-lead professional development sessions with 20 math teachers from 5 high schools in Rockingham County. The focus for professional development will be on increasing student-centered math instruction (SCMI) practices, which have proven to increase student learning for all students, in particular those traditionally disenfranchised by traditional math instruction.
  • Dr. Jennifer Mangrum (TEHE) will implement Paideia seminars for teachers at General Greene Elementary School in Guilford County as they promote ‘close reading’ during their Science and Technology instruction. This project will include the 4th and 5th grade teachers and their UNCG MAT elementary education interns.
