by: Brenda Wojnowski and Jack Rhoton

The East Tennessee State University Science Partnership (ETSUSP) is bringing about a restructuring of the system as it pertains to building and maintaining ongoing and sustained professional development in science teaching and learning at the middle and high school levels in Northeast Tennessee. Through a collaborative relationship extending more than a decade with various funding agencies and local school districts in the Upper East Tennessee Educational Cooperative (UETEC), a professional development model for middle and high school science teachers emerged. The following sections describe each component of the model and provide insights into the ways in which the program is addressing professional development issues.
