The study of the effects of GK-12 programs on teaching fellows is presented. The GK-12 grants are awarded to universities to have graduate students and faculty in STEM fields work with teachers, schools, and students to improve STEM education. The model of GK-12 at Tufts University as one of small team work in which one fellow works with 1-3 teachers and serves as a technical resource for the teacher and classroom and the teacher serves as an expert about pedagogy and classroom teaching. Evaluation data collected throughout both Tufts GK-12 projects have suggested an apparent trend in how the Fellows' understanding of teaching and schools changes over the course of their Fellowship.
