The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Milwaukee Public Schools have received a $2.4 million grant from the National Science Foundation to improve the teaching of mathematics and science in Milwaukee public high schools.
The five-year project, the Milwaukee Master Teacher Partnership, will run from fall 2016 to summer 2021.
The partnership will engage 25 teachers with master’s degrees across MPS high schools in personalized professional development and classroom-based research.
“This effort will strengthen the professional capacity of high school mathematics and science teachers and create a new generation of teacher leaders in science and mathematics,” said Michael Steele, the project leader. He is an associate professor of mathematics education and chair of the Department of Curriculum & Instruction at UWM.
