  • CSU STEM Teacher Pathways: New Models of Success October 2012 Dr. Joan Bissell Director, Math and Science Teacher Initiative Dr. Beverly Young Assistant Vice Chancellor, Academic Affairs
  • Pathways Impacts: Significant Increases in Preparationof Well-Trained Math and Science Teachers StatewideLarge and sustained overall increases – Doubling of CSU teacher production (750 to 1,500)Major increases in mathematics – Increase of 132% (349 to 811) – Foundational Level Math CredentialIncreases in all four science areas – Physics +117% (30 to 65) – Chemistry +100% (56 to 112) – Geosciences +62% (37 to 73) – Biology +6% (296 to 313)
  • Pathways Placements: CSU Math and ScienceTeachers Serve California’s High Need Schools55% teach in urban schools36% teach in schools that have not met their annual API71% teach in schools with more than half of the students in poverty90% teach in schools with less than a fully credentialed teaching staff CSU’s new teachers are contributing significantly to overcoming inequities inthe distribution of math and science teachers.
  • Pathways Strategies for Preparing and RetainingWell-Qualified Mathematics and Science TeachersComprehensive RecruitmentFinancial Support and IncentivesAligned Content and Pedagogical PreparationCommunity College Partnerships and TransferCollaboration with K-12 Districts in Clinical Teacher PreparationSTEM-Focused Beginning Teacher Support and Induction
  • STEM Teacher Pathways – Models of Success PreparingHigh-Quality K-6 Teachers Beginning in Community College Aligned pathways of STEM content preparation for future elementary teachers – Seamless progression from 2-year to 4-year campuses – Articulation of lower-division STEM courses in the two systems – Will include attention to CCSS and Next Generation Science Standards California Teacher Pathways with After-School Programs – 10 participating campuses serving future elementary teachers – Future teachers work in after-school programs while earning credential – Participants are from low-income communities and plan to return to them
  • STEM Teacher Pathways – Models of SuccessPreparing Middle School Math and Science Teachers Foundational Level Math & General Science Credentials: New CSU Teachers – 351 new Foundational Level Math Teachers in 2011 – 84 new Foundational Level General Science Teachers in 2011 FLM & FLGS Credentials: Veteran Teachers – Campus-based and online programs – Result in second credentials in FLM and FLGS FLM & FLGS Credentials: Teachers Affected by Layoffs – Programs for laid-off teachers with support from Workforce Investment Boards – Additional programs for new teachers not yet able to secure positions
  • STEM Teacher Pathways – Models of SuccessPreparing Future High School Teachers Increasing prestige of STEM teaching – Culture of distinction on CSU campuses – STEM Teacher and Researcher (STAR) Program – Math and Science Teacher Initiative (MSTI) Fellows Sustained scholarships and financial aid – NSF Noyce Scholarships and Fellowships – Business and Industry Scholarships – Math for America Clinical Preparation in partnership with K-12 School Districts – Alignment of content and pedagogical preparation – Support for teacher candidates in professional learning communities – Comprehensive mentoring, supervision, and feedback
  • STEM Teacher Pathways – Models of Success Addressing Linked Learning Linked Learning Lens in Teacher Preparation – Model conducted in collaborations with ConnectEd – Prepares high school teachers for Linked Learning and Career Academies – Linked Learning Lens Network led by San Diego State University Pathway begins in Community College and goes through Induction – Early community college preparation pilot led by Cerritos College – Pre-service university and credential preparation includes entire secondary faculty – Induction/BTSA in Wall-to-Wall Linked Learning--Long Beach Unified School District
  • STEM Teacher Pathways – Models of SuccessFocused on Induction Alternative Induction Pathway (AIP) – Provides Induction opportunities for teachers affected by layoffs – Approved by California Commission on Teacher Credentialing – Successful pilots in Long Beach Unified and Sacramento Unified School Districts Results of AIP and Aligned BTSA Innovations – Development of added expertise as new teachers complete credential – Focus on priority areas related to K-8 STEM and Linked Learning – Creation of a continuous, sequential STEM pathway from pre-service to induction
  • CSU STEM Teacher Pathways Recognized as NationalModels of SuccessCSU’s STEM Teacher Pathways have been recognized for their success by: 100Kin10 National STEM Teacher Initiative Presidential Council of Advisors in Science and Technology (PCAST) American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education National Association of System Heads Association of Public Land Grant Universities
