Pre-Service Teachers’ Development Towards Computer Science Principles: A Career Path Predictor

Students involved in this research project will assist the two faculty researchers in collecting (interviews) and analyzing (coding) qualitative data that later informs the development of a survey instrument. There will be opportunities for the student to be involved with presentations of this research, as well. Description and Purpose of Research Project: Computer and information technology occupations are among the fastest growing jobs in the United States (US Bureau of Labor Statistics,2016). This rate will continue well past the year 2022, however, only approximately 10% of K-12 schools offer computer science courses (Westervelt, 2014).

U.S. Classroom Libraries Database Project

The U.S. Classroom Libraries Database Project is a multi-state project, examining books that area available in elementary classroom libraries. A group of researchers from five states have developed a database of 58 classrooms and have documented the books found in those classrooms. Currently, the project team is working to clean and organize the database. Once the database is cleaned, in the Fall 2017, the team will be working on many projects related to children’s literature and analyzing children’s books. We are recruiting enthusiastic undergraduates, with an interest in education, children’s literature, or research, in general. All majors may contact Dr. Tracey Hodges for more information. Dr. Hodges will provide training b...
