The TeenACE for Science project, led by the Center on Disability Studies (CDS) in the UH Mānoa College of Education, was selected for an American Council on Rural Special Education (ACRES) award. The project was recognized for its services to persons with disabilities in inclusive environments on March 19, 2015 at the annual ACRES conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Under the leadership of CDS Assistant Professor Caryl Hitchcock, TeenAce for Science partners teachers and students across the state to develop and evaluate strategies for teaching science expository writing. Together, they work in a multimedia environment to engage participants and improve outcomes. The project is supported by a Steppingstones grant.
