Nonfiction Texts in Inquiry-based Science, K-5 (NFTI Science, K-5)
Nonfiction Texts in Inquiry-based Science (NFTI) is a research project designed to determine the impact of an intensive professional development program on teacher science content knowledge and student achievement in science. NFTI Science uses a quasi-experimental research design with two-groups. The research questions are:
- Does participation in the NFTI Science PD program increase the science content knowledge of Grades K – 5 teachers?
- Does participation in the NFTI Science PD program lead to increases in student achievement in science for the students of the participating teachers?
The program consists of two distinct and concurrent arms, the Grades 3 – 5 arm that began in the summer of 2014 and the Grades K – 2 arm that began in the fall of 2016. The program is in its fourth and final year.
