Middle-Grade Science and Math Teachers Go Back to School

For three years after a long day in their own classrooms, 48 Washington, D.C., teachers of middle-grade math or science teachers would arrive at AAAS for three-hour evening classes once a week. Some of them wore workout clothes, many snacked during class, and a few had their children playing quietly on the sidelines. All of them had enthusiastic reasons for why they would devote their time to attending evening and summer classes and meeting in small groups on weekends. Deepening their knowledge as a way to improve their teaching, building their confidence, completing a master's program for free and being eligible for pay raises topped their list of reasons.
