The UTeach Model 

written by Michael Marder

As part of an NSF funded Math and Science Partnership grant, we have developed and implemented a yearlong series of science content courses for future elementary teachers based on Physics and Everyday Thinking (PET). The geology and biology courses continue the theme of energy and interactions developed through PET and the pedagogical model mimics PET. The courses are taught on five campuses, three community colleges that feed Western Washington University, and the Northwest Indian College. Student learning results for both inservice and preservice teachers are positive. We have documented positive changes in elementary classroom science instruction and student achievement as well as differences in preservice students in science teaching methods courses.
