Funded by the National Science Foundation, this three-year project will examine and compare the quality and quantity of science instruction provided by classroom generalists versus that provided by science specialists.
The project will:
- Document the financial and human resources required by each science teaching model
- Determine whether there are meaningful differences between the models and, if so, whether these differences affect student outcomes
Findings generated by this study will inform:
- The research community, where these questions have not yet been investigated
- State, district, and school policymakers, as they decide how to allocate limited resources to provide quality science instruction
