Improving the math and science preparation of future teachers

I am the Principal Investigator at Longwood for two grants dealing with future teachers.  The first is the Virginia Collaborative for Excellence in the Preparation of Teachers (VCEPT), a consortium of Virginia colleges and universities cooperating on a National Science Foundation-funded program designed to improve the mathematics and science preparation of our students who intend to become K-8 teachers. For more information about this project, click here.  The second grant, funded by the Fund for the Improvement of Post Secondary Education in the U.S. Department of Education, focuses on teacher preparation programs in middle school math and science.  It also involves a consortium of Virginia colleges and universities.  For more information about this program, click here.
