[65.07] The Impact of Science Graduate Students in Urban Science Classrooms: The SFOS Program at Cal State Los Angeles

S. Terebey, D. Mayo, J. Strauss (Cal State Los Angeles)

The SFOS program at Cal State Los Angeles places science graduate students in minority serving high schools and middle schools in the Los Angeles region. Graduate fellows pursue Master's degrees in biology, chemistry, geology, or physics while working with partner teachers to provide science demonstrations and activities that are based on California science content standards. Fellows in the classroom are not apprentice teachers, but rather, their role is science communication. Now in its third year, we discuss the impacts of the SFOS program on graduate fellows, teachers, and high school curricula.

We thank the National Science Foundation for funding through the GK-12 program.
