Abstract Title: Revealing Effects Of Changes In Middle School Science Teachers’ Practices
Abstract: Grant agencies are requiring documentation that goes beyond anecdote. We work with inservice middle-school and high-school teachers in two high-needs urban school districts in Ohio. The Ohio Department of Education requires supported programs to involve at least 120 hours of professional development, with at least half during the school year. We estimate that new teachers who attend the summer institutes received at least 133 hours of professional development involvement this past year (70 h, summer; 63 h, grade-level meetings; up to 96 h, CFA analyses; and staff classroom visits and voluntary attendance at professional society meetings). We report on several ways we measure changes.
