Keywords:Collaborative Partnerships, PLC's, Mathematics and Science Integration
In this article integrating math and science curricula is promoted as well as examining how the role of professional learning communities (PLCs) can assist in this endeavor. This strategy will lead to numerous benefits such as closing the minority achievement gap and advancing the United States’ rank in global measures. Although barriers exist to this implementation, the authors believe these can be overcome. The importance of “teacher buy-in” is examined as well as strategies for allowing teacher preparation time.
