Science Teachers Acquired through New Directions in New Mexico (STAND-NM)
  Location: SS 104
  Date: Monday, Aug.1
  Time: 6:30 PM -6:40 PM
  Author: Jennifer Neakrase, New Mexico State University
  Co-Author(s): None
  Abstract: Traditionally the certification of physics teachers at New Mexico State University has been part of the secondary education program in the College of Education. Students select a specific science discipline (e.g., physics) as part of a general science certification, in which they declare secondary education as their undergraduate major or receive their license through a Master of Arts program as graduate students. As part of the traditional program, students take a limited number of discipline specific courses. Previously there was no option for science majors to receive a secondary science teaching license without switching majors away from their science discipline or entering the Masters program. STAND-NM, an NSF Noyce-funded program, provides a new option for science majors to pursue secondary science licensure while finishing their undergraduate degree within their science major. This talk introduces the program at NMSU and discusses difficulties in recruitment, especially with our physics majors.
