Date:11/5/2008

ears teaching in a high-needs school district.

Cyrus Taylor, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, has committed $60,000 for four additional scholarships to junior STEM majors for their senior year studies in the year following the grant's end.

Internships

An additional program component will give students early teaching experiences to introduce them to secondary teaching as a career option. The grant provides for paid summer internships working with high school students.

Students who participate in the Noyce summer internships are given preference during scholarship selection.

Mentoring

The centerpiece of the Noyce Program is a new mentoring model called the "reflective triad," which taps into the talents of high school teachers from the partner schoolsCleveland Heights High School, Shaker Heights High School and the new Cleveland Metropolitan STEM schoolsand university STEM faculty with experience in K-12 education.

These three groupsthe student, Case Western Reserve faculty and high school teacherswill form cohorts and work together towards a new model of teacher training with the goal to invigorate STEM education.

While the state licensure program mandates new teacher mentoring, the Noyce program will provide opportunities that augment existing efforts.

Post-graduation Follow-up

Mentoring continues after graduation through web-based resources for interactive conferences.

Students will have periodic opportunities to interact with mentors, faculty and peers after graduation. The university will chart the progress and success of these Noyce scholars after graduation, and seek their input for program review.

"It has been shown that beginning teachers who are mentored are more effective teachers in their early years," Bernetich said.

"As students become proficient teachers, they will serve as role models and mentors to succeed
