NEW TOOL: How can mentor teachers and university educators support preservice science teachers?

Posted on April 04, 2017

What are the best practices for bringing new teachers into the science education profession? What are the roles of mentor teachers and university educators in this process? The new vision for K-12 science education calls for efforts to promote vertical coherence across different levels of the system and different educational sectors, including preservice teacher education. This new STEM Teaching Tool provides specific guidance for how to help new teachers join the profession with a focus on equitable 3D instruction. This excellent resource comes from TJ McKenna, Todd Campbell, Victoria Schilling, and the University of Connecticut Teacher Mentoring Collaborative.
