Rose Pringle, Ph.D

Rose Pringle, Ph.D

is an Associate Professor in the School of Teaching and Learning at the University of Florida, Gainesville. As she prepares future teachers to teach science, and conducts professional development with practicing teachers, there is a seamless integration of her interests in teacher education with exploring the science achievement of African American schoolgirls. Of such, three major sub themes provide an organization to her research: Nature and development of science teachers’ subject knowledge, nature and development of science specific pedagogy in both prospective and practicing science teachers, and the relationship among science teachers’ expectations, pedagogical practices, and African American girls’ self-perception as science learners. Rose has authored or co-authored over twenty-five journal articles and co-authored one book: Language and Literacy in Inquiry-based Science Classrooms: Grades 3-8. She has also served as principal investigator or Co-PI on several research grants, including Multi-University Reading, Mathematics and Science Initiatives and NSF-GSE/RES.
