Barrow is involved in the PDSD through clusters of teacher candidates, on-site courses and instructional technology support.
Gretchen Thomas in the department of career and information studies supervises small groups of UGA students who work on-site once a week as part of their instructional technology course. The course works with Media Specialist Mr. Plemmons in the media center to support makerspace and works with teachers to support STEAM-based activities in their classrooms.
Graduate students in the department of mathematics and science education teach the course entitled Children’s Mathematical Thinking, EMAT3400 on-site each semester.
Previous UGA courses taught at Barrow have included social studies methods courses, first-year courses focused on reading with children, an elementary art methods course, a special education course, and a service-learning course related to hunger issues.
The school was the site of a two-year study, led by Dr. Jennifer James, teacher researchers and Principal Dr. Ellen Sabatini, that explored what it means to prepare students for civic participation in a 21st-century world. This research was published in the School-University Partnerships journal, click here for a pdf of the article.
