GK-12 Urban Educators Program at IUPUI
The GK-12 Urban Educators Program at IUPUI is a partnership between the IUPUI School of Science, the IU School of Medicine, and the Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS). GK-12 Fellows are research graduate students (M.S. or Ph.D.), who dedicate 15 hours per week in nearby school classrooms, grades 6-12, working with a science teacher partner to bring excitement of research into the science classroom or outdoor laboratory. GK-12 Fellows benefit by improving their leadership, communication, and teaching skills, and become more aware of the need for high-quality science education at all levels.
Up to eleven GK-12 Fellows and GK-12 Teacher Partners will be selected to work together in the third year of this project, from summer 2010 - summer 2011. Each GK-12 Fellow (M.S. or Ph.D.) will earn a $30,000 annual graduate stipend for participation in the program, plus a limited tuition/fee waiver and health/dental insurance.
GK-12 Fellows will develop age-appropriate, hands-on classroom activities that:
* Are broadly related to their own area of graduate research
* Are linked to the Indiana Academic Standards, grades 6-12
* Fall into one of two themes relevant to students' lives:
* Medicine and Human Health
* Discovering the Science of the Environment (DSE)
GK-12 Fellows will spend 10 hours per week directly working with students and an additional 5 hours per week with their GK-12 Teacher Partner for planning and preparation, plus attend monthly group GK-12 meetings (15 hours per week total).
GK-12 Fellows must be US citizens, nationals, or permanent residents, in good academic standing, with prior TA experience preferred, and receive the written support of their thesis advisor. Doctoral students should have completed their first year.
