Faculty Spotlight - Excellence in Research Award
Wesley Pitts (Middle and High School Education) works to build capacity so that urban science education can flourish where there are mutual interfaces. His research combines frameworks from cultural sociology with critical ethnography, cogenerative dialogue, coteaching, and prosodic analysis technology to investigate teaching and learning in the urban landscape. A complementary avenue of his research investigates the use of electronic portfolios as high-stakes exit projects in science teacher education programs.

This event is part off the Obama initiative to provide America’s classrooms with 100,000 excellent STEM Teachers by 2021. Right now we are currently facing a national crisis. America was once a leader in science, technology, engineering and math. Today dozens of countries outshine the US and our work force is unable to compete with the global industry or economy. These facts have led our nation to take ACTION.
100kin10 is a national movement that is designed to fuel the next generation of innovators and problem solvers by providing America’s classrooms with 100,000 STEM teachers in 10 years.
Please join us in answering the nation’s call by considering a career as a STEM teacher. You are invited to interact with a panel of extraordinary STEM teachers across New York State and learn more about their journey into the profession, the need for more STEM teachers, and the pathway to becoming certified to teach in New York State.
Join the movement and help restore America to greatness!
We look forward to seeing you at the event.
