Trygstad, Peggy J.; Banilower, Eric R.; Smith, P. Sean; Nelson, Courtney L. – Horizon Research, Inc., 2014
The logic model that implicitly drives most professional development (PD) efforts asserts that PD leads to changes in teacher knowledge and beliefs, which leads to improved classroom practice, and ultimately, better student outcomes. However, efforts to study the impacts of PD programs are often hampered by the scarcity of high-quality…

Trygstad, Peggy J.; Smith, P. Sean; Banilower, Eric R.; Nelson, Michele M. – Horizon Research, Inc., 2013
The forthcoming Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) aim to reshape K-12 science education, but making the vision a reality will require changes throughout the education system. What teachers ultimately do in the classroom depends on a host of factors, including state and district policies, school structures and supports, preservice…

Smith, P. Sean; Nelson, Michele M.; Trygstad, Peggy J.; Banilower, Eric R. – Horizon Research, Inc., 2013
Equitable science education opportunities are shaped by factors originating inside and outside schools. Resources for science instruction--for example, laboratory equipment and course offerings--have historically been allocated unequally across schools serving different student communities. This paper addresses the equity of instructional resource…

Smith, Adrienne A.; Banilower, Eric R.; Nelson, Michele M.; Smith, P. Sean – Horizon Research, Inc., 2013
New K-12 science education standards emphasize teaching and learning grounded in authentic scientific practices. A first step toward supporting teachers' adoption of scientific practice-based pedagogies is to develop a clear picture of how teachers are currently teaching science, and what factors predict their pedagogical choices. A recently…
