Curriculum and Instruction News

Jen Schoepke was recently hired as the new director of Forward Madison, a partnership between UW-Madison’s School of Education and the Madison Metropolitan School District that’s designed to impact student achievement by growing, inducting and supporting new educators within the Madison Schools. “Forward Madison has made great strides in its first three years, and I am honored and excited to continue to advance its equity minded goals through this innovated university-district partnership,” says Schoepke, who will start her position Dec. 11.
The research of UW-Madison’s Kathryn Kirchgasler that examines the racialized history of U.S. science education was recently featured in a news report from the University of Kansas. Kirchgasler is a Ph.D. candidate with the School of Education’s Department of Curriculum and Instruction. While completing her dissertation, Kirchgasler has started working as a lecturer with the University of Kansas’ Department of Curriculum and Teaching. The news report notes how Kirchgasler has been studying how U.S. students have been separated into different levels of science classes for more than a century and how research and standardized testing have perpetuated inequalities.
