Designing a STEM Professional Development Program for Preschool Teachers, With Supports for Dual Language Learners

Fri, April 28, 2:15 to 3:45pm, Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, Ballroom Level, Room 305

Abstract

SciMath-DLL is a preschool professional development (PD) model including STEM instructional offerings that aims to improve the quality of instruction for all children, including dual language learners (DLLs). The purpose of the PD model is to create practical and authentic STEM and DLL supports for early childhood educators, who are generally not well prepared to support STEM learning or to teach DLLs. The present study examines the iterative development process of our professional development model, in particular, what we learned during implementation, and changes we made to address what we learned across our studies.
