TEACHERS “ENGINEER” CONTEXTUALIZED UNITS TO CHALLENGE & ENGAGE STUDENTS
An NSF-funded program provides professional development and coaching to help secondary math and science teachers integrate engineering design into their classrooms. This paper examines the process by which participating teachers individually develop five engineering design units, uniquely suited to address their classes’ academic standards, and teach those units over two school years, as well as the findings related to the impact of this process on the teachers themselves and their students.
