U .Ed . 12-29 Dean's Message As people who care deeply about the field of education, the allegations about child abuse that began to emerge in early November are particularly and profoundly disturbing. The allegations are serious, and our hearts break for whoever has been harmed. It is extremely unsettling to think that our great University had any connection whatsoever with abuse, and we are gratified by the Trustees' determination to investigate thoroughly and to make matters right. The University will respond positively, and we look forward to working closely with President Rodney Erickson to find significant ways for the College of Education to be helpful. The expertise of our faculty and students puts us in a unique position to help address issues surrounding the prevention of child abuse. We are already pursuing a new collaboration with local school districts to provide teachers, counselors, and other professional educators with the resources they need to assist the victims of abuse. You may be aware that educators have legal obligations to report on cases where there is evidence of abuse. We prepare our students to recognize the signs and to fulfill their reporting obligations. But we are also learning that making a report is the first step in a very complex and challenging social process. A teacher, counselor, or administrator who files a report often enters into unchartered territory with the student and the student's family. Law enforcement and child protection agencies become involved, and the school/ student relationship is forever changed. We are resolved to learn more about what educators need to know about working with students who are the victims of child abuse, and we will work closely with our colleagues in surrounding districts to gain these insights. We are being guided in our efforts by the five key promises announced by President Erickson: 1. Reinforcing the moral imperative of doing the right thing, 2. Leading by example, 3. Providing transparency to the fullest extent possible, 4. Fostering the healing for the victims of abuse and awareness of the issue in our community, and 5. Supporting the investigation of the Board of Trustees special committee. We are also heartened by the major new initiatives Penn State will be launching in the next few months to prevent and treat child abuse. The best of Penn State will prevail, and the College of Education will be an active partner in all of these efforts. We are hoping for your continued support, and we will work hard to restore and maintain your Penn State pride. Penn State College of Education Annual Report 1 Scholarships make a very real difference for Penn State students . This summer John Gilmartin, a 1965 graduate of the University, contributed $1 million to his already established John Gilmartin Trustee Scholarship . This is the single largest gift toward scholarships in the history of the College . Because of his generous gift and the unique fund-matching nature of the University's trustee scholarships, 45 students received Gilmartin scholarship funds in 2011�12 . 2 Resolving to Reach Higher Student photos by Steve Tressler Nine-year-old Jessica [not her real name] was a shy little girl desperately missing her parents when Victoria Miller first met her at the Golden Slipper Camp in Stroudsburg, Pa. "She had never been to a sleep-away camp, and she was homesick," said Miller, the camp's arts and crafts coordinator. "I talked her through it, and within a few weeks she grew into a bright, social, and active camper, even returning to camp in the years since." Miller said that making a difference in the lives of children at the Golden Slipper Camp is what convinced her to major in elementary and kindergarten education at Penn State. But paying for Victoria Miller college at her "dream school" was not something her parents were able to do, given that they had six other children. "I would not be a Penn State student without the help of scholarships, including the John Gilmartin Trustee Scholarship," she said. Miller, who plans to graduate next spring after completing her student teaching at a school in Belle Vernon, Pa., has made the most of her time at Penn State. Currently, she is observing and helping out in a firstgrade classroom at Tuscarora Valley Elementary in Port Royal, Pa. "I am learning many valuable lessons, both from my students and my mentor; lessons about how to be flexible, how to manage a classroom, and how to teach," said Miller. She also has been a member of the Penn State Blue Band Silks. "The marching band has been one of my biggest activities at Penn State," she said. "Nothing in my life will ever compare to the feeling of walking into Beaver Stadium for a night white-out game when all that you can hear is the sound of the crowd over the drums playing. The band has provided me with leadership opportunities, my closest friends, and a place at Penn State in which I know I will always belong." Sometimes all it takes is the encouragement of one teacher to give a student the confidence that he or she needs to succeed. Dana Mitchell wants to be that teacher. "Being from Washington, D.C., I see many youth who don't receive enough classroom support and encouragement," said Mitchell, a freshman who plans to major in childhood and early adolescent education. "They have no one to tell them that they can be great. I want to be that one teacher." Mitchell knew from an early age that she wanted to teach as a result of watching her mother teach special Dana Mitchell education students and mentor students in extracurricular activities. "My mother's passion for helping her students succeed really rubbed off on me," she said. "As a girl, I would gather my friends together and pretend to be a teacher, just like my mother. But I was determined that one day I wouldn't have to play `school' anymore. Instead, I would teach in a real school." Mitchell chose to attend Penn State after a visit to the campus during which she "fell in love with the university." But paying for it was going to be difficult. "When I first received my aid summary I didn't think I would be able to afford Penn State," she said. "Receiving the John Gilmartin Trustee Scholarship was extremely helpful. And it was more than just financial assistance; it was a confidence boost. It showed me that hard work and determination pays off." Mitchell noted that by giving her a scholarship, the Gilmartins played a role in encouraging her to go to college, to do well there, and to reach for her full potential. She remarked, "I hope to give the same encouragement to my own students one day." Penn State College of Education Annual Report 3 Instead of spending spring break 2011 lounging on a beach or visiting her family, Alexandra Collins, a senior in secondary education-mathematics, taught English to children in the Dominican Republic. The work was part of a service trip organized by the Penn State Clown Nose Club, which challenges people to take positive social risks. Collins was the club's social chair in 2010. "I was inspired by the eagerness the kids had toward learning," she said. "The experience taught me how fortunate I am to study at such a fine institution, something these kids may never do." Alexandra Collins I might otherwise have spent working at a job after class to pay for my tuition has allowed me to devote more time to helping others," she said. In addition to working with the Clown Nose Club, Collins served as the external vice president of the Penn State Chapter of the Student Pennsylvania State Education Association (SPSEA). Among her duties was to arrange for educational speakers to visit campus. One of them was Rebecca Snyder, the 2009 Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year. "I saw her talk at a conference and was inspired," said Collins. "I wanted to share that inspiration with my fellow education majors." Collins's other recent activities have included serving as a captain for THON 2011; as the secretary of the Penn State Math Club; and as the treasurer of the Penn State Performing Magician's club, which often performs for charities. Next spring, she will participate in the College's student teaching abroad program, student teaching for twelve weeks in Pittsburgh and then for nine weeks in Dublin, Ireland. Among her long-term goals is to become a mathematics teacher. She also hopes to serve as an advisor to a club that will give students an opportunity to participate in service trips abroad similar to the one she took to the Dominican Republic. "I enjoy being involved because it allows me to help others, something I am extremely passionate about doing," said Collins. "I love motivating and inspiring others to reach their fullest potential. It is the main reason I wanted to go into education." Collins credits the John Gilmartin Trustee Scholarship with helping her to achieve this educational goal and for enabling her to pursue extracurricular activities. "The extra time I have that The desire to recapture a lost love and to change one's past--that's what Bret Plavchak finds so fascinating about the novel The Great Gatsby. "I think it's something we can all relate to," said Plavchak, who has read the book five or six times, "the wish to change a mistake you have made in the past and the pain that comes with knowing you can't." Plavchak said it is his love of reading and writing--along with his desire to help educate children--that made him decide to become a high school English teacher. With help from the John Gilmartin Trustee Scholarship, he has been able to attend Penn Bret Plavchak State, where he is a senior majoring in secondary education. Plavchak noted that he has seen his tuition go up roughly $400 a year. In addition, the cost of on-campus housing, textbooks, and food has increased. "This situation is especially painful for someone like me since my parents are not able to pay for any of my college education and, instead, I must take out student loans," he said. "Although my family has had its struggles, I've always worked extremely hard in school because I knew that education was a way for me to overcome my disadvantages." Indeed, Plavchak's hard work is paying off--he has made the dean's list four semesters in a row. "When I saw that I had been awarded the John Gilmartin Trustee Scholarship, I felt a deep sense of pride. I saw that my many years of hard work were not going unnoticed." Plavchak, who hopes to pursue a master's degree in education policy once he graduates from Penn State, said he looks forward to the day when he can help inspire high-school students to work as hard as he has. "Just like in Gatsby, many of the choices we make in life are irreversible," he said. "I hope I can help students make decisions that they won't regret." 4 Resolving to Reach Higher Meet John Gilmartin John Gilmartin recently contributed $1 million to his already established John Gilmartin Trustee Scholarship. This is the single largest gift toward scholarships in the history of the College. "I am deeply concerned about the burden that dwindling state support for public institutions like Penn State is likely to place on students, especially those considering careers in education," said John Gilmartin. "Our future as a country depends upon the preparation that teachers bring to our classrooms. It's important to keep a Penn State degree affordable for education majors so that they can take on the challenging and emotionally rewarding positions that will make the biggest difference in their communities and pursue the kind of graduate studies that will help them become even more effective educators." Because the Gilmartin scholarship was established as a trustee scholarship, Penn State will match 5 percent of the total pledge or gift, making funds available immediately for student awards. This University match, which is approximately equal to the endowment's annual spendable income, continues in perpetuity, doubling the support available for students with financial need. Gilmartin, who earned a degree in finance from Penn State's Smeal College of Business in 1965, is a retired chief executive officer of Millipore Corp., a worldwide provider of products and services to life sciences companies. Since 1995, he has been involved with a number of successful charter schools in Boston. His wife, Maryann Gilmartin, is a former preschool teacher with a master's degree in early childhood education from Wheelock College. John Gilmartin's past gifts include the John A. Gilmartin Renaissance Scholarship and the John Gilmartin Endowment for Enhancing Educational Opportunities, which supports a wide range of initiatives reaching out to students from diverse backgrounds and communities. Gilmartin said that his latest gift is also a birthday present to himself. "I turn 69 this year, and I can't think of a better way to mark the milestone than making this gift to our Trustee Scholarship," he said. "My education at Penn State changed my life and has helped me to reach a point where I can give back, and I am delighted to make a Penn State degree possible for education students who will go on to enrich the lives of others."

(bottom right) Gay Krause addresses the audience. Gay and Bill Krause, whose $6.5 million gift is supporting the soon-toopen Krause Innovation Studio, were on hand October 28 for a special ribbon-cutting ceremony in Chambers Building. The ribbon cutting signaled the establishment of the College of Education's most advanced teaching and learning resource. With their gift--the largest in the history of the College of Education-- the Krauses are shaping the future of technology in education. The Krause Innovation Studio will be a haven for faculty and students who want to take advantage of powerful tools such as digital video, Web 2.0 tools, and mobile and ubiquitous computing to support their teaching and learning. "We need to change the pedagogies in our schools," Gay told the guests who attended the ribbon cutting. She said teachers must make full use of "technology as a tool." Bill further noted that, "education of the next generation is critical--not just here, but worldwide." 6 Resolving to Reach Higher David H . Monk, dean of the College of Education, stated, "We're all challenged today to keep pace with this ever-changing world as we work hard to enhance the competitive edge of our workforce, develop future leaders, and facilitate learning for a diverse and geographically dispersed student population. Thanks to the generosity and vision of Gay and Bill Krause, the College is now uniquely poised to meet and exceed these challenges." According to Director Scott McDonald, the Studio will operate from the standpoint of a faculty member's needs, rather than with the arsenal of equipment to be housed on-site. Educators will be encouraged to be innovative--to think in new ways about what and how they want their students to learn, and then consider appropriate technologies to support their work. Said McDonald, "We expect the Krause Innovation Studio to become a place where our students come to work and collaborate with faculty and each other. The space is ideal for supporting student groups working on projects such as analyzing video of practice or co-authoring class projects." The ceremony's attendees included members of the Penn State Board of Trustees, the College of Education Alumni Society Board, the Dean's Development Council, and former President Graham Spanier. During the ceremony, the Krauses were presented with mementos in recognition of their membership in Penn State's Mount Nittany Society. This prestigious society honors individuals whose cumulative lifetime giving to Penn State has reached or exceeded $250,000 in irrevocable commitments. The Krauses received their Mount Nittany Society medallions, as well as a crystal to recognize their membership in the Laurel Circle and a framed photo for their status in the Elm Circle.

As Dean Monk states in his message (page 1), we are confident in the leadership of Dr. Erickson, and the College of Education is committed to helping make Penn State a better and stronger institution. I am profoundly grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement from our alumni and friends. You represent what's best about Penn State in your own communities every day, and we thank you for your leadership as we move through the crisis. We remain focused on our mission at the College of Education: the world-class education, research, and service opportunities that are the hallmark of Penn State. I recently celebrated my one-year anniversary with the College, and, during that time, I have witnessed the myriad ways that we fulfill this important mission. The University has invested in our infrastructure, and we now have beautiful new classrooms in the Chambers Building. I've also enjoyed watching the transformation of the building's second floor into the Krause Innovation Studio. In addition, plans for the renovation of the CEDAR Building are taking shape. The College faculty continues to excel in their disciplines, receiving accolades, and we retain our high position among colleges of education. Our alumni and graduates are in high demand, reshaping the field of teaching, and working across the country and the globe to advance the field of education. We are proud to have talented new and returning students walking our halls, and we continue to be deeply committed to their success. Continuing this tradition of excellence would not be possible without your involvement, leadership, and support. Your generosity is a driving force behind the College, and we are so grateful for the collective impact of this support. Student need and debt are reaching record levels in the United States while government assistance declines. Your contribution removes these financial roadblocks to success and ensures opportunity for bright and talented individuals. I have read countless thank-you letters from scholarship recipients, full of gratitude and emotion about these life-changing gifts. We are halfway through the For the Future Campaign, and together we have made extraordinary progress to fortify the College. With your continued partnership, I know that we'll achieve even more in the years to come. For the Glory, Michelle K.

Student support from endowed funds comes in the form of scholarships, graduate assistantships, and fellowships. The chart on this page demonstrates the impact of these gifts. of the Harry and Marion Royer Eberly Faculty Fellowship in Education, is also using the income from the Eberly endowed fund to hire a graduate assistant to aid in her research. and program offerings in science education, helping us prepare better science teachers for the future. As you can see, the endowments created by our donors are providing significant and increasing levels of support for both our undergraduate and graduate students. While the increases we are showing are very gratifying, the need for this support is increasing even more rapidly, and for this reason we have begun to direct resources from annual gifts to the College's Future Fund to the scholarship support of our students. We are very grateful for the vote of confidence those of you who support the College are showing in the work we do with our students. These men and women are truly the future of the field of education. Thank you for making it possible for us to do this important work, and please reach out to the College of Education development office to let us know more about the kind of student needs you are most interested in supporting. Supporting Students Several donors have established endowments that directly provide assistantship and fellowship funds. The David H. Nicholson Graduate Fellowship in Adult Education, for example, provides one fellowship each year to a graduate student in adult education. The Geraldine Brush Endowment for Excellence in Education helps support the Dean's Graduate Assistantships program (see page 9), providing support for graduate students in the College. Endowed funds may be used in a variety of ways to support students. For example, this year the College is using funds from the Kenneth L. Waterbury Chair in Secondary Education to support a visiting professor in science education, who is contributing to the College's research Scholarships provide needed support to undergraduate and graduate students, paying for tuition and necessary living expenses. These scholarships reduce the burden of debt for many students and their families. Scholarships help students finance their education without part-time work, which can be especially important to students during their student teaching and/or internship semesters, when a part-time job is not feasible. Endowed funds also provide support to students through graduate assistantships that cover the costs of tuition and provide a modest stipend and insurance coverage in exchange for part-time work on an academically relevant project. Faculty members holding endowed chairs or professorships often use the proceeds of these endowments to create assistantships to support their graduate students' work on research projects. This results in a dual benefit for both faculty and students, since faculty have increased capacity and efficiency, and the graduate students learn how to conduct cutting-edge research. For example, Professor Preston Green, the Harry L. Batschelet Chair of Educational Administration uses part of the income from the Batschelet endowment to support a graduate assistant. Professor Karen Murphy, the current holder 8 Resolving to Reach Higher $1,000,000 $243,873 $209,776 $126,470 800,000 600,000 400,000 '08�09 $604,600 '06�07 $530,000 '07�08 $553,000 '01�02 $350,908 '03�04 $433,593 '05�06 $467,000 '09�10 $571,000 '02�03 $391,635 200,000 0 Income Supporting Students Via Scholarships Income Supporting Graduate Assistantships and Fellowships '04�05 $383,132 '10�11 $619,300 $345,146 $113,948 $117,007 $187,916 $90,355 $99,420 $65,774 Income from Endowments Dean's Graduate Assistantships Awarded to Six Doctoral Students Six doctoral students in the College of Education have received Dean's Graduate Assistantships for Engaged Scholarship and Research in Education this year. The College established the assistantships program last year as a way to attract the most highly accomplished and promising doctoral candidates. The graduate assistantships aid students applying for doctoral programs in the College of Education. Penn State's Graduate School and the College of Education collaborate to fund the program which is now supporting a total of 13 students. Each recipient is funded for the first two years of graduate school with a good possibility to receive any further funding necessary from research projects that are funded outside of Penn State. This year's recipients and their areas of doctoral study are: Laura Heintz, school psychology Paolo Infante, curriculum and instruction Stephen Kotok, educational theory and policy Younhee Lee, curriculum and instruction Cindy Robinson, counselor education William Smith, educational theory and policy Left to right: William Smith, Stephen Kotok, Paolo Infante, and Younhee Lee. Not pictured: Laura Heintz and Cindy Robinson Photo by Paul Hazi New Online Master's Degree with Teacher Leadership Option Penn State is offering a new 30-credit distance education program-- an online M.Ed. in Educational Leadership with an Option in Teacher Leadership. The convenience of the online program should appeal to teachers who are looking to improve their leadership skills. "We believe that this Teacher Leadership option will provide the opportunities and experiences for teachers to develop their leadership potential, deepen their knowledge of schools, teachers, and student learning, and renew a passion for their work on behalf of public education in a democratic society," said Nona Prestine, professor of educational leadership and the program's lead faculty member. The program is organized around five strands of teacher leadership-- responsible influence, understanding internal organization of schools, ongoing professional development, powerful curriculum and instruction practices, and practice-based inquiry--that thread through and connect all parts of the program. Of the program's 10 courses, three are new to the Educational Leadership program: � EDLDR 801: Introduction to Teacher Leadership � EDLDR 802: How Schools Work � EDLDR 894: the program's capstone course in which the students share their portfolios in live online presentations The online Teacher Leadership option features five tiers of courses. While the courses within each tier can be completed in any order, students are strongly advised to complete the tiers in sequence. "Thus, the program offers students both a thoughtful and connected sequence of learning activities as well as the flexibility to participate in the program at their own pace," said Prestine. "This way, we don't lockstep our students into a rigid completion timeline." The program also accommodates in-state educators who are interested in pursuing two other certificates awarded by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE): � For persons seeking the Instructional Coaching Certificate, the M.Ed. program fulfills two of the four courses required by PDE. � Four of the courses in the Teacher Leadership option can be applied toward completion of the Penn State Principal Certification program.

Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences $3,952,267 Start date: 7/1/11 College Research New Research Projects Expected to Advance Knowledge in Various Fields of Education Research on the Effectiveness of a Tool to Improve Literacy Assessment Simon Hooper, Penn State; Susan Rose and Charles Miller, University of Minnesota U .S . Department of Education $899,601 Start date: 1/1/12 This project builds on the previous work of Hooper and his colleagues in which they developed a software system that helps deaf Simon Hooper and hard-ofhearing (DHH) children develop their English-language literacy skills. The new project tests the effectiveness of that Web-based monitoring system, known as AvenueDHH. AvenueDHH allows teachers, parents, and students in grades 1�8 to engage in literacy monitoring activities. It addresses the unique needs of DHH children using an auditory�visual game-like environment to improve the methods and response-tointervention (RTI) processes used to monitor student literacy skills. Hooper, Rose, and Miller hypothesize that using the AvenueDHH e-assessment environment will improve children's literacy performances, increase teacher use of data-based decision making, and stimulate using formative assessment data to inform RTI decisions. $40,000 2011 Postdoctoral Ford Foundation Fellowship Leticia Oseguera National Research Council of the National Academies Start date: 9/1/11 Oseguera is conducting research to examine relationships between income, race/ ethnicity, and enrollment at higher Leticia Oseguera education institutions. Her research interests focus on access to and retention in postsecondary education for low-income students and other marginalized populations. Through its fellowship programs, the Ford Foundation seeks to maximize the benefits of diversity of the nation's college and university faculties. Fellowships are awarded to individuals who, in the judgment of the review panels, have demonstrated superior academic achievement, are committed to a career in teaching and research at the college or university level, show promise of future achievement as scholars and teachers, and are well prepared to use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students. SEALS has been shown to promote students' academic and socialemotional success during early adolescence. Thomas W. Farmer The new study is evaluating the impact of the SEALS model with metropolitan students during the transition to middle school. Data are being collected through teacher-, peer-, and self-reports in both intervention and control schools. Constructs will include (1) students' academic, behavioral, and social adjustment; (2) classroom social networks and perceptions of the school environment; and (3) school record data. The project calls for teachers in intervention schools to be trained immediately prior to students' transition to 6th grade. In the control schools, teachers will continue to use traditional practices to address academic, behavioral, and social issues. 10 Resolving to Reach Higher Leah Bug--Assistant Director, Center for Science and the Schools (CSATS) Tyco Electronics Foundation TE Connectivity $20,000 Start date: 7/1/11 This funding supplements a larger Universitywide project known as the Pennsylvania Wind for Schools Program Leah Bug at Penn State. That collaborative project involves schools and communities in the advancement of wind energy education, technology, and awareness. It engages rural elementary and secondary school teachers and students in wind energy studies while educating college students about wind energy applications. The role of CSATS, which is located in the College of Education, is to provide training to teachers in the schools through research-based professional development workshops and customized curriculum support. The TE Foundation's grant will help schools realize their desire to purchase and install a wind turbine (2.4kW) to provide students with a concrete example of how wind energy works, while allowing for educational opportunities using state-of-the-art technology. University Alumni 2011 Alumni Fellow Award Winner The Alumni Fellow Award is the most prestigious award given by the Penn State Alumni Association. Since 1973, the Alumni Fellow Award has been given to select alumni who, as leaders in their professional fields, are nominated by an academic college and accept an invitation from the president of the University to return to campus to share their expertise with students, faculty, and administrators.
