Developing Leadership and Support for Professional Learning Communities for Urban Science Teaching

A collaborative project of Michigan State University
and the Lansing School District,
funded in part by a five-year grant (2002-2007)
from the National Science Foundation.

The catchy acronym by which our project has affectionately become known is PI-CRUST,
which stands for "Professional Inquiry Communities for Reform-based Urban Science Teaching."

Co-Principal Investigators:       Dr. Gail Richmond
