The National Center for Educational Statistics reports that in 2007-2008 25% of physics teachers and 20% of chemistry teachers had neither a major nor a certification in the field they were teaching. This number drops to 10% for biology teachers. While large schools may be able to allow teachers to teach only physics, many smaller schools will require the physics teacher to also teach chemistry (and perhaps biology and earth science). In Arkansas, a teacher cannot be licensed in physics alone, but must obtain certification in physical science, physics and chemistry. This means well-prepared physics teachers must also be well prepared in chemistry. This suggests that physics programs should work with chemistry programs to produce well-rounded science teachers. In this workshop, we will share our experiences with collaborating with our chemistry department as part of the UTeach replication program at the University of Arkansas. We will discuss the advantages and challenges of reaching consensus about degree requirements, sharing experience in recruiting teachers, and working together within the UTeach model. This collaboration has already resulted in the funding of a Robert Noyce Scholarship grant which will offer scholarships to physics and chemistry students. We will discuss the strengths of the collaboration that led to funding the grant and how your program can position itself for support. We will also discuss our plans to leverage our experience as a PhysTEC program and the collaboration with the chemistry department to produce one potential model for CTEC.
