STEM Principal Nicholas Vancheri and six of his colleagues in Montclair State University’s Teacher Education and Teacher Development (TETD) doctoral program were chosen to present at the 2017 AERA Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas. 

 

Mr. Vancheri and his colleagues will present the following paper at the annual conference: Research Reviews of Teachers’ Beliefs: The Heart of the Matter.  The researchers conducted a thematic analysis of 10 reviews of research on teachers’ beliefs from 1986 to 2015, which revealed five major themes across the reviews: (a) issues of terminology, (b) types of beliefs examined, (c) the complexity of teachers’ beliefs, (d) methodological challenges, and (e) recommendations forwarded.

 

The American Educational Research Association was founded in 1916 as a professional organization representing educational researchers in the United States and around the world. As a nonprofit serving the education research field, AERA strives to advance knowledge about education and promote the use of research to improve education and the public good.

Students in STEM Academy have been chosen by the Hamilton Partnership of Paterson and the Great Falls National Park to update the Mill Mile app, which is the free walking tour of the Falls.  Over the course of the 2016-2017 school year, STEM students will research, write, advertise, and launch the new app.  Participating students and teachers will not only have the opportunity to apply what they have studied in their history and applied technology courses, but they will also have the opportunity to put their stamp on Paterson’s history for years to come.

 More information on the Mill Mile can be found at the following link: http://www.millmile.org/
