Science Teachers' Learning: Enhancing Opportunities, Creating Supportive Contexts

Science Teachers Learning_LThis report provides guidance for schools and districts on how best to support teachers’ learning and how to implement successful programs for professional development. The report makes actionable recommendations for science teachers’ learning that take a broad view of what is known about science education, how and when teachers learn, and education policies that directly and indirectly shape what teachers are able to learn and teach.

B&OLThis report reviews research on the roles that people, processes, and institutions play in 2-and 4-year STEM degree production. This study pays special attention to the factors that influence students’ decisions to enter, stay in, or leave STEM majors—quality of instruction, grading policies, course sequences, undergraduate learning environments, student supports, co-curricular activities, students’ general academic preparedness and competence in science, family background, and governmental and institutional policies that affect STEM educational pathways.
