Harvey Williams (GRS grad 2011) just finished scoring his students’ Living Environment regents exams from UPREP Charter School in Rochester NY. He was thrilled to learn that 51 out of 62 kids passed (82.3%)!! He credits support for his development and success to the work he did in both his GetReal! Science teacher education program as well as this past year’s professional development collaborative work in EDU 474 (Implementing Curricular Reform in Science Education).
“I think that 474 allowed me to collaborate with, learn from, and grow with other professionals in my first year as a teacher. It gave me the opportunity to analyze my struggles in the classroom, hear from others in similar situations, and creatively problem solve”.
For some time warp fun, check out the hilarious rap Harvey and his cohort made about their beach investigation back when they were in their GRS program!! Definitely worth the watch!!
