Recruiting top math and science graduates for the classroom – Teach For America’s model Documents
Recognizing the urgent need for excellent math and science education in this country, Teach For America has launched a concerted campaign to bring increasing numbers of outstanding math and science teachers to our country's lowest-income communities. Through this initiative, we aim to more than double the number of math and science teachers entering our corps from 800 to 2,000 by 2010 while increasing their short-term and long-term impact. This workshop will provide background on Teach For America's mission, impact, and operations as they relate to the needs in math and science classrooms in low-income communities. Participants will engage in discussions around motivations and barriers of undergraduate physics students and ways to influence STEM majors to enter secondary math/science classrooms (in lieu of or prior to another career path).
