T2L Research Internship Application

Teach to Learn Research Summer Internship

Position Description

The Teach to Learn (T2L) program is a partnership between Williams College, MCLA, and North Adams Public Schools (NAPS). T2L is designed to impact the science learning experiences of undergraduate students by engaging them in a year-long experience to develop and implement science curricula in K-7 classrooms in the North Adams School District. Currently T2L is in year 3 of a 4 year $810,876 National Science Foundation grant. The principle focus of the grant is to gain new knowledge about the possible impact of the T2L program on the undergraduate, the teacher and elementary students. Over the first three years of the grant, the T2L project team has gathered multiple surveys on specific research questions about the nature of scientific inquiry and science pedagogy. This position will focus on reviewing, organizing, and analyzing T2L data for impacts both in line with T2L research questions as well as unexpected impacts.

We encourage students to apply who have taken math classes and who have strong communication and organizational skills and an interest in education research.

This paid internship is six to nine weeks long depending on the candidate’s availability. Room and board are available at Williams College.
