The program that you are applying to is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) DR K-12 program (DR=Directed Research). As part of the requirements of the grant, a U of MN team member will observe implementation of the course content into your classroom. This means that one observer would visit your classroom following research guidelines from your district, the University of Minnesota and NSF. Teacher and student information and research data are kept anonymous. By checking the box below, you indicate that you are willing to find out more about classroom visits by U of MN team members. Reasonable effort to do classroom implementation and invite researchers is an expectation for all teachers enrolled in this course.
