abstract
As part of my summer 2007 EPSCoR project, I spent extensive time helping Erin Hotchkiss, a graduate student in Biology, with her thesis research in stream ecology. As I am a chemistry-education major, I found my research experience to have many benefits that I can integrate into my future classrooms. Since all scientific knowledge comes from research, an understanding of how field research is actually conducted is necessary as a science teacher. The goal of the EPSCoR-endorsed Science Teacher Education Program (STEP) is to give future science teachers research experience and help them learn how to integrate such experience into their science classrooms. I am currently student-teaching in a chemistry classroom at Laramie High School for my final semester at UW. I have started to integrate my research experience into my classroom by planning several activities that involve students in scientific research. During my oral presentation, I will further explain my research experience, how it has affected my teaching, and how I plan to use specific activities to enhance students’ overall understanding of science.
