Projects & Initiatives

E-Learning Communities for Academic Language Learning in Math and Science (ECALLMS)

The goal of this project is to prepare members of the Urban Community Teacher Education (UCTE) community (teacher candidates, university faculty, district personnel, site teams, cooperating teachers, program graduates) to provide linguistically responsive instruction that accelerates ELs’ acquisition of language, literacy, and content knowledge, with a particular focus on math and science. We plan to substantially improve curricula and enhance existing networks and relationships by focusing on two levels of initiatives (pre-service and in-service) that are intertwined and sustainable through the continued development of a substantial, high quality, UCTE online learning community.

Dinosaurs, Denver and Climate Change (D2C2)

ECO-Opportunity Project is a Track 1 Proof-of-Concept proposal that uses learning about dinosaurs and fossils as the hook for underrepresented youth to learn about geology and climate change and to engage in green community-based projects. The proposed project provides the resources for underserved youth to learn about geoscience by directly experiencing it through Colorado’s natural resources (Dinosaur Ridge and Red Rocks Park).

Science Posse Project

The University of Wyoming Science Posse is a partnership of graduate students, UW faculty and 7th-12th grade teachers with a passion for science and education. Our current Posse includes PhD candidates researching topics in psychology, zoology and physiology, botany, ecology, paleontology, and mathematics. Traveling throughout the state, these scientists bring their research, materials, resources, and information to middle school and high school students and science teachers. In doing so, they hope to create excitement and interest in science and to inspire students to take more science and math classes and pursue careers in those areas.

Wyoming Coal
