CA Elementary Math and Science PL Initiative: This report summarizes findings and lessons learned from a two-year study of Project ExCEL, a partnership between San Francisco State University and two local school districts, San Francisco Unified School District and Bayshore School District. Project ExCEL focused on increasing teachers’ content knowledge and pedagogical skills related to the Next Generation Science Standards
(NGSS) in order to increase science accessibility for students traditionally underrepresented in STEM majors and careers. Over two years, the PI, Stephanie Sisk-Hilton, and other professors from San Francisco State facilitated monthly meetings for participating teachers throughout the academic year with one-week Institutes during the summer to support the integration of NGSS-aligned science and engineering practices and learning experiences into their elementary classrooms.
