The STRIDES project supports teachers to customize the curricula to address diverse students’ evolving ideas. We are collaborating with the Educational Testing Service (ETS) to develop state-of-the-art technology to provide teachers with detailed evidence of students’ progress in achieving the multi-dimensional proficiency called for by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
We have developed a Teacher Action Planner (TAP) in our web-based curriculum environment to enhance the curriculum customization cycle.
The TAP presents patterns in students’ evolving understanding in real time, and provides research-based customization activity choices for the teacher to address the patterns.
- Cultivating Teacher Efficacy for Social Justice in Science
- Designing a remote professional development course to support teacher customization in science
- Human-Centered Design Principles for Actionable Learning Analytics
- Supporting Collaborative Curriculum Customizations Using the Knowledge Integration Framework
Logged data of teachers’ customizations and their students’ responses enable teachers to reflect on the impact of their customizations.
STRIDES professional development activities guide teachers in the reflection process documenting the impact of their customization decisions and in modifying their plans for future implementations.
