Curriculum and Practice of an Innovative Teacher Professional Development Program
Horton, Akesha; Shack, Kyle; Mehta, Rohit
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, v36 n3 p237-254 Sep 2017
The MSUrbanSTEM fellowship program provides exemplary urban STEM teachers the opportunity to engage in transformative instructional and leadership experiences that support the advancement of their teaching practice. In this chapter, we provide a foundational examination of the development and implementation of a curriculum for this innovative program. This includes an exploration of how the TPACK framework is modeled for the fellows in order to create community of practice for Chicago Public School teachers interested in creating authentic learning experiences for their students. Further we examine how the teacher's expectations inform the development of the curriculum and define what it means to explore, create, and share as praxis in an urban context.
