Radio Guest, Claudia Toback, Field Supervisor for Hunter College and Retired NYC Teacher 

Topic:  The Role of Project-Based Learning in STEM Education

Radio Guest: Claudia Toback began her teaching career more than 50 years ago in New York City’s public schools.  She considered herself a six-week wonder, as a “graduate” of the Intensive Teaching Training Program.  With science and math teacher shortages looming, NYC offered recent college graduates the opportunity to teach.  She took the challenge and began teaching 9th-grade science to inattentive students.  That changed when she buckled down to make science more exciting.  Claudia developed special class projects that integrated science, math and engineering, which she claims is the precursor to STEM.  Although retired from the classroom, Claudia is actively engaged in working with a new generation of science teachers in her position as a field supervisor for Hunter College.
