Title: Understanding Science Professional Development and the Science Achievement of English Learners. Frequency: Annually. Affected Public: Individuals or household. Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 3,516. Burden Hours: 673. Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate how to prepare middleschool teachers to improve all students’ physical science content knowledge, including that of low-performing students and English learners (ELs). Using a cluster-randomized experimental design, the research will test the effectiveness of WestEd’s Understanding Science model of professional development, an approach that incorporates science content, analysis of student work and thinking, and critical analysis of issues related to teaching that content to students. The professional development course sessions focus on science concepts both in the context of structured investigations and in narrative cases of teaching practice drawn from actual classroom episodes involving those concepts. This model will be evaluated by comparing it with a control condition VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:17 Aug 31, 2007 Jkt 211001 that provides no additional science professional development beyond that already received in each school. The experiment will evaluate the value added for grade 8 teachers in California who take an Understanding Science course in addition to whatever science professional development they ordinarily receive. The ultimate outcome of interest is the impact of the professional development on students’ science achievement. To provide a basis for explaining the results, impacts will also be studied on teachers’ science content knowledge, and a descriptive study will examine selected aspects of their classroom science instructional practices.
