NEW TOOL: How can you advance equity and justice through science teaching?

Posted on April 27, 2021

We just published a new STEM Teaching Tool that describes seven key, intersecting EQUITY PROJECTS that should guide science teaching. The approaches build directly from the vision in the NRC Framework and NGSS—and highlight important areas for future work. This resource is multifaceted and links off to 80 supporting resources that can support hours of extended professional learning. This resource was co-authored by Deb L. Morrison, Kathleen Arada, Maya Garcia, and I. We worked in partnership with hundreds of collaborators including members and partners of the Council of State Science Supervisors (CSSS). They provided powerful guidance on earlier versions of the resource. This equity project framework is now guiding future STEM Teaching Tools resource development—so this resource can be considered a jumping off point of sorts.
