STEM-LIT Project Overview
The STEM-LIT project was designed to impact participating middle school teachers directly, and their students indirectly. Mathematics, science, English language learning, and special education teachers participated.
Over the first two years of the project, 35 teachers from two schools in a southwestern Washington school district participated in the professional learning activities, impacting more than 4,000 students. In the final summer of the project, an additional 31 teachers from two other schools in the district participated in PD activities organized and led by 6 of the STEM-LIT participants who became teacher leaders. Teachers who participated in all activities engaged in a total of 228 hours of PD between June 2013 and June 2015.
