We’re recruiting U.S. schools and teachers to participate in a U.S. Department of Education Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED) grant, starting in 2022-23!
UTeach will provide free training, curriculum, and ongoing support to current or future AP CS A teachers for two years, along with a teacher stipend. UTeach and its research partner, American Institutes for Research (AIR), will study the implementation and impact of the curriculum on students and teachers in the first year of the project.
This project aims to 1) increase the number of highly qualified computer science teachers in schools and 2) broaden participation of underrepresented students in CS through project-based curriculum. The study will provide information to participating districts about the effectiveness of the UTeach CSA curriculum with training and support, and it will help districts expand CS course offerings to high school students by providing free CSA curriculum.
What will my school and teachers receive if we participate?
- Two years of free access to the UTeach AP Computer Science A curriculum and ongoing teacher support ($1,600+ value), including comprehensive teacher materials, interactive student textbook, and built-in programming environments on the cloud-based Codio platform
- Free, College Board–endorsed, online professional development ($1,000 value) or a shorter platform training for experienced AP CSA teachers
- Teacher stipends for participating in study activities
How do I learn more?
