Educators implementing the vision of 3D equitable science instruction described in the Framework for k-12 Science Education face many problems of practice. The STEM Teaching Tools collection of resources - a pool is researcher and practitioner designed materials that continues to grow - are available freely to support educators in addressing such implementation challenges. We will explore the collection, engage in some example uses of these resources, and discuss other options for supporting educators in this critical moment of shifting instructional goals and norms.
Dr. Deb Morrison collaborates with those involved in K-12 education to design effective learning experiences for students and teachers which attend to equity within science education. Her research specifically focuses on the ways in which those involved within systems of education navigate new identities and narratives of the way in which we engage in equitable educational practices and how we can use these new and evolving narratives to further expand equitable opportunities for students to gain meaningful and relevant science learning experiences.
