We are very pleased to announce that we have received a three-year research grant from the National Science Foundation to study the ways in which language plays a role in the educational challenges that often affect culturally and linguistically diverse students in STEM classrooms. Our goal is to work with teachers to figure out what challenges are being faced in terms of language for their math and science students and what resources teachers and students need to be able to face those challenges. During the grant, “Assessing the Results of Sociolinguistic Engagement with K-12 STEM Education in Maryland and Virginia Public and Independent Schools,” we will work with K-12 STEM educators in the Baltimore and Richmond areas to collect data on how these educators learn from professional development workshops on language variation and integrate pedagogy and assessment techniques into their classroom. Our research also provides immediate practical application to educators’ pedagogy and practice in the form of educator workshops, teacher designed readings, and a website for educators that ensures that the research outcomes of our project are broadly disseminated.

I just got my flu shot and my Pneumovax 23 vaccine. I've worked so hard to get back to being able to work and have some fun. If someone gives me the flu, all that and more will be at risk. I have less lung tissue to breathe with and my immunotherapy may result in a harsher case of the flu or they may even stop my therapy putting me at greater risk of my cancer coming back. As many of you know, I had a cough for most of the summer and the steroid treatment to get it to stop was tough on me. So be a good colleague, friend, student, human on earth and if you plan to be around me, please get your flu shot!
