NSF Funding for Julie Brown’s Team to Study Culturally Responsive Practice (CRAFT)

With funding from the National Science Foundation, Project CRAFTCulturally Responsive Affective-Focused Teaching of Science and Mathematics (2101277) aims to equip secondary science and math teachers with culturally responsive, affective-focused practices and leadership skills to support STEM learning, affect, identities, and career interest for students who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). The project team, led by Julie Brown, also includes Co-PI’s Catherine Paolucci (UF-Mathematics Education), Chonika Coleman-King (UF-Teachers, Schools and Society), and Corinne Huggins-Manley (UF-Research and Evaluation Methods).

In partnership with the University of Florida, Alachua County Public Schools (ACPS), and the National Science Foundation, CRAFT will develop 48 secondary science and mathematics teachers culturally responsive, affective-focused teachers and leaders, and will impact more than 5,000 BIPOC students in Florida.
