About T-SCORE

WHAT IS T-SCORE?

The Teachers and Students for Community-Oriented Research and Education (T-SCORE) project is designed to help teachers develop and teach health science lessons that provide students with learning experiences that grow their interest and knowledge about the health sciences.

T-SCORE MISSION

T-SCORE aims to establish a learning community of teachers, students and researchers committed to bringing relevant community-based health issues into the classroom. We believe empowered teachers, engaged in a comprehensive professional development program, will have a positive impact on students’ self-efficacy, knowledge, and interest in health science careers. By focusing on teachers as the main agents of change, T-SCORE hopes to increase the number of underrepresented and minority students pursuing careers in health sciences.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

The T-SCORE Summer Institute provides professional development to help teachers create new health science units. T-SCORE also provides additional support throughout the year as teachers implement their new units in the classroom.
