The Noyce Scholars prepared by our grant are teaching in high needs schools, a perfect setting from which to nourish and grow future STEM teachers.
How does the Learning Assistant Model appear in the secondary school classroom?
Surveys of Noyce Scholars and descriptions of how they are implementing this model and any observations about increasing secondary student interest in college and/or teaching STEM.
A list of ways the model is being implemented thus far. Recommendations from STEM teachers who traditionally have not associated their role of teaching with that of recruiting future secondary STEM teachers.
When secondary classroom teachers encourage secondary students to help each other learn, to become learning assistants for themselves and for each other, they could be considering future careers in teaching. The longer one thinks about these issues, the higher the probability of choosing a career/profession that best fits one’s own future. The ability to remain in teaching for a longer timeframe is related to understanding what the career/profession is about.
