Research Experiences for Teachers (RET)

Research Experience for Teachers (RET) is a program that allows teachers to actively participate in current research with one of our faculty’s research groups and design standards-based classroom activities from these experiences. Each RET participant will work under the direction of a specific principal investigator (PI) with post doctoral/graduate students from the PI's group. Throughout the summer and into the subsequent academic year(s), teachers will work with the Teacher Research Coordinator (TRC), who will coordinate the activities of the teachers during the summer and oversee the completion of a standards based curriculum element. Teachers will be encouraged to participate for two consecutive summers* in order to continue research and refine curriculum elements.
