About the Author
  • Gale Seiler
    University of Maryland Baltimore County
    E-mail Author
    GALE SEILER is an assistant professor at the University of Maryland Baltimore County where she teaches and supervises student teachers. She was a high school science teacher for sixteen years, teaching culturally diverse students in a variety of settings from Baltimore to South America. Her research examines how curricula and classrooms can be restructured to build on cultural practices and dispositions of urban, African American students, and the culturally specific ways in which African American students participate in school science. In addition, she is interested in the preparation of teachers both in and for urban schools, and in collaborative research with participants in local schools. Gale and Rowhea Elmesky contributed to and co-edited (along with Kenneth Tobin) a recent book entitled Improving Urban Science Education: New Roles for Teachers, Students, and Researchers.
