It is important to fully understand why students apply for Noyce Programs, how they grow in terms of pedagogical content knowledge as participants, and what these growth factors portend for their success as high-needs STEM teachers.
We just finished, and submitted for publication and extensive research project….the abstract is above. It is currently under peer review. The goals are to identify the details of how Noyce Scholars self-view on teaching in a high-needs school evolves over 5-years.
This research is conducted via a systematic quantitative and qualitative analyses of essays written by Noyce Scholars over 5 years. Emergent themes were identified , coded in the essays, and results reported both quantitatively and qualitatively.
We’ve identified remarkable growth in self-view. Initially most Noyce Scholars had very naive understandings of what it means to be a STEM teacher in a high needs school. Throughout the program, and into their induction years, there is remarkable growth in self view.
This is a high quality research project and it may serve as a model for how to conduct Noyce Scholar related research.
