Description:

The Chèche Konnen Center conducts research on teaching and learning in K-8 urban classrooms where many students speak a first language other than English. A key aspect of their work is to document "the sense-making resources that children from ethnically and linguistically diverse backgrounds bring to the study of science (e.g., the oral and literate traditions they command in their daily lives outside of school) and the ways these intersect with those characteristic of scientific disciplines." The website describes the classroom research project, their approach to teacher professional development, and lists related research articles. The History section describes one of their first investigations, The Water Taste Test.
