The Development of a Learning Community through a University-School District Partnership
Ferreira, Maria Madalena
School Community Journal, v17 n1 p95-112 Spr-Sum 2007
This paper describes a program sponsored by the National Science Foundation in which graduate and advanced undergraduate students from science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines partnered with local science and mathematics middle school teachers in a large, urban school district serving mostly low-income minority children. Results from the evaluation of the program indicate that the program was successful in providing learning opportunities for the participating students not usually available to them. More importantly, the various components of the program contributed to the development of a learning community in which the various stakeholders, regardless of their role in the program, became enriched through their shared experiences.
