Selected Books on Teaching
Science Teaching Essentials by Cynthia J. BrameScience Teaching Essentials: Short Guides to Good Practice serves as a reference manual for science faculty as they set up a new course, consider how to teach the course, figure out how to assess their students fairly and efficiently, and review and revise course materials. This book consists of a series of short chapters that instructors can use as resources to address common teaching problems and adopt evidence-based pedagogies. By providing individual chapters that can be used independently as needed, this book provides faculty with a just-in-time teaching resource they can use to draft a new syllabus. This is a must-have resource for science, health science and engineering faculty, as well as graduate students and post-docs preparing for future faculty careers.

Empowering Underrepresented Students in Science by Sonji Johnson-Anderson; Ranjana Lingutla; Margaret RileyEmpowering Underrepresented Students in Science: STEM Students Speak chronicles the best practices of a STEM retention program for underrepresented minority students (URM) at a public university. Written mostly as an engaging series of vignettes, this story invites its audience to examine the "underbelly" of this successful program. It reveals to readers what lies at the heart of creating and sustaining a STEM retention program that is as inviting as it is vital. The program's practice of reflection helps to build students' self-efficacy and self-understanding. This book addresses the problem of merely throwing resources at a program to have it only achieve mild success. Most STEM retention/support programs offer a litany of "things" they think are necessary for students, especially traditionally underserved students, to survive in STEM. We contend that our program goes beyond merely throwing money at a need, to critically assessing the need through the lens of inclusive practices. Our program attempts to engage with the whole selves of the students we serve. Proposes a focused, strategic approach to offering support to underrepresented minority (URM) students Shares easily reproducible ways to build a STEM support program to replicate the success at UMASS AP Features an engaging, readable style with real-world applications
