Lenoir STEM Learning Community

Lenoir STEM Learning CommunityJust the facts, maamWhat? Half million dollar MSP grant with additional financial support from industry partnersWhy? 1) To support teachers in mathematics teaching, 2) to develop team of teacher leaders to help with district and school-wide initiatives, and 3) to foster industry partnershipsWho? K-8 Lenoir County Teachers; ECU Faculty; Industry PartnersWhen? Starts this summer July 7-17 MAYBE??How? Summer Institute plus four additional PD days during the yearLenoir STEM Learning Community PartnersLenoir County SchoolsEast Carolina UniversityIndustry PartnersBest Diamond PackagingChef & The FarmerDown East Protection SystemsDepartment of the NavyDomestic Fabrics & Blanket CorporationDupont Industrial BiosciencesElectrolux Home ProductSpirit AeroSystemsWest Pharmaceutical ServicesOverviewThree year project with 30 teachers completing the professional development each year. Ten teachers in the first group of 30 will become part of a teacher leadership team and participate the entire three years.Opportunities specifically for administrators in years two and three.

Grant EvaluationIncreased teacher content knowledgeIncreased understanding of mathematical practicesIncreased teacher efficacyIncreased student achievementIncreased student of mathematical practices, specifically discourse and modelingIncreased use of data to drive instructional decision-makingIncreased access to high-demand tasks, particularly real-world tasks connected to industry partnersResearchThe research component of the project will investigate:The ways in which a group of elementary teachers implement a formative assessment and intervention process focused on core mathematics topicsThe impact of that implementation on student learning of those core topicsThe impact of that implementation process on teachers mathematics knowledge, beliefs and attitudes
