Year 3 External Evaluator Report

Description

This report summarizes work across three years of the GENA Project. It was prepared by The Study Group, the project's external evaluators.




The GENA Project calls for the establishment of a network of geneticist-teacher
partnerships that work together developing learning plans for high school students
focused on one or more misconceptions in genetics reflected in their respective state
science standards. GENA convened three cohorts of geneticist-teacher partnerships
between July 2007 and 2009. Cohorts I, II, and III consisted of 13, 37, and 20
partnerships respectively. The GENA experience is a one-year commitment beginning in
the summer with participation in the GENA Workshop. Partners collaborate throughout
the following school year developing and implementing the partnership's learning plan.
