Los Angeles Urban Teacher Residency (LAUTR)

The Los Angeles Urban Teacher Residency (LAUTR) is working from an $8.8 million federal grant awarded to CSULA to prepare future math and science teachers to help close the achievement gap. Teacher residents work side-by-side with a mentor teacher for an entire school year while taking graduate-level classes at CSULA. Upon completion ofthe 14-month training period, they earn both their preliminary teaching credential and a master's degree in education. Additionally, residents are given a $16,000 living stipend and must commit to teach for 3 years in a high-need urban public school. More information can be found on our website, www.lautr.org, or from contacting LosAngelesUTR@gmail.com.View External Website

Report of 2012 National Survey of Science and Mathematics Education

The Report of 2012 National Survey of Science and Mathematics Education details the results of a survey of 7,752 science and mathematics teachers in schools across the United States. Areas addressed include: teacher backgrounds and beliefs, teachers as professionals, science and mathematics courses, instructional objectives and activities, instructional resources, and factors affecting instruction. The research questions addressed by the survey included: 1. To what extent do science and mathematics instruction and ongoing assessment mirror current understanding of learning? 2. What influences teachers’ decisions about content and pedagogy? 3. What are the characteristics of the science/mathematics teaching force in terms of race, gender, age, content background, beliefs about teaching and learning, and perceptions of preparedness? 4. What are the most commonly used textbooks/programs, and how are they used? 5. What formal and informal opportunities do science/mathematics teachers have for ongoing development of their knowledge and skills? 6. How are resources for science/mathematics education, including well-prepared teachers and course offerings, distributed among schools in different types of communities and different socioeconomic levels? The Report may be downloaded as one large, 3.7 megabyte document or one chapter at a time. View External Website
