SciGirls Strategies Implementation Evaluation Report

SciGirls Strategies Implementation Evaluation Report

DESCRIPTION

For the SciGirls Strategies supplemental activity, ten educators were trained to be SciGirls Strategies trainers during June 2019 (see the Training Evaluation Report). During that time, they developedaction plans for their local teacher training. The goal was for each Trainer to train ten or moreteachers in their local schools/districts. Trainers could plan and schedule their workshops to fittheir local context in order to accomplish the objectives of building teacher’s confidence andskills in using gender equitable and culturally responsive teaching strategies. After the trainingworkshop, the trainers met once a month virtually and had continual access to the facilitators oftheir training (University of Minnesota professor Dr. Barbara Billington and St. Kate professor,Dr. Siri Anderson, the project’s Co-PI Dr. Brenda Britsch and two TPT staff members, LeahDefenbaugh and Alex Dexheimer).This report characterizes the implementation of the local training using data from trainerinterviews, trainer surveys, and teacher surveys. The data were analyzed to draw conclusionsabout the critical factors in the preparation and implementation of the Train the Trainer (TTT)model and its success with participating teachers.
