Mathematics & Science Partnerships
Phase II: Improving Math & Science Teaching through School Outreach
A South Carolina Math-Science Partnership Project
PI - William Veal Ph.D., College of Charleston Department of Teacher Education
Co-PI - John Peters Ph.D., College of Charleston Department of Biology
The College of Charleston in partnership with three school districts (Georgetown, Charleston, & Berkeley) and private schools (First Baptist, and Low Country Preparatory School) have developed Phase 2 of a professional development project to strengthen content and pedagogical knowledge of middle and high school science and mathematics teachers. Phase II courses were developed from content needs assessments identified by each participating school involved in the partnership and aligned to national/state content standards. A tentative schedule of course offerings for Summer 2014 can be found on the Course Offerings link above.
teachers accepted into the program will

courses will be taught at the CofC North Campus.
Science courses will be taught at the downtown campus. We
have limited funds to pay for parking and travel to and
from the downtown campus, so we are requesting that
teachers from the same school or district share rides to
the College. The link below contains the current list of
MSP participants, their contact information along with
which course(s) they are taking.

Program Surveys - Please complete the following survey before arriving on campus for your summer MSP course. All participating teachers must complete the respective survey, regardless of whether you have taken a MSP course in the past. Teachers taking both a science and a math course should complete both of the surveys below. If you are taking more than one course this summer, you only need to complete the respective survey once, prior to the start of your courses.
This project is supported by a grant from the SC State Department of Education's Math Science Partnership Program.
