    FREDERICK W. FREKING is an Associate Professor of Clinical Education in the USC Rossier School of Education. Dr. Freking began his career in Science Education as a Biology Major at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He earned his teaching credential at Azusa Pacific University and taught Biology and Human Anatomy and Physiology at Covina High School. His desire to learn science at a deeper level led him to the Physiological Science Department at the University of California, Los Angeles. He completed his thesis on The Synthesis and Metabolism of Androgen in a Songbird: A Study of the Tissue Expression of the Sex Steroid Synthetic and Metabolic Enzymes to earn his Ph.D. in the field of neuroscience. Dr. Freking then accepted a faculty position in the UCLA Science Teacher Education Program where he was able to combine his science teaching and science research experience to prepare future science teachers. During the past ten years, Dr. Freking has taught Genetics, Molecular Biology, and Human Anatomy and Physiology to undergraduates and Science Teaching Methods and Guided Practice to graduate education students. He has been a Co-PI on a NSF GK-12 Fellowship Grant and a NSF Robert Noyce Scholarship Grant. His research focuses on the impact of inquiry-based instruction in high needs secondary schools and the preparation of science teachers to meet the academic language needs of their students.
