MSU SETS-UP: SUPPORTING EARLY-CAREER TEACHERS OF SCIENCE THROUGH URBAN PARTNERSHIPS

 
Why MSU

 

Focus on Urban Schools

MSU SETS-UP Fellows will focus on preparing for science teaching careers in high-need schools in Michigan and beyond, where science teachers are in especially high demand.

Top Ranked Teacher Preparation Program

The Fellowship builds on the strengths of MSU’s highly-regarded teacher preparation program, which is informed by research on teaching and learning and closely tied to field-based practice. A central feature of the field-intensive program is a full-year urban residency, during which Fellows will work in urban school classrooms with experienced mentor teachers.

History of Success

The Fellowship also draws on the MSU commitment to improving urban education. Faculty members have a history of developing successful partnerships with urban school districts, including Detroit Public schools, as well as creating effective courses for teachers in collaboration with scientists and mathematicians (Teachers for New Era project).
