The goals of the NSF Geoscience Teacher Training (GEO-Teach) program are to ensure that geoscience content is taught broadly and effectively at middle and high school levels by a highly qualified teacher workforce and that methods and content are scalable to the national level. GEO-Teach projects should be designed to facilitate widespread participation of broad segments of the geoscience research and teaching community to maximize impact of the program. The principal goal of GEO-Teach awardees should not be to develop new curricular materials, but should be to add value to existing materials by developing resources that will ensure that the existing materials are used effectively. GEO-Teach is not intended to develop high-end cyberinfrastructure but rather should leverage other activities such as the resources of the National Science Digital Library (NSDL), of which the Digitial Library for Earth System Education (DLESE) is a component.

GEO-Teach projects should be designed to result in widespread implementation of pre-service teacher training and in-service professional development programs that produce highly qualified and effective geoscience teachers. GEO-Teach awardees will disseminate information about best-practice models of teacher training and professional development to the geoscience community at large and will assist the community in extensively replicating successful programs.
