Bio/Personal Statement

Aloha! I am Scott Cohen, a former science teacher at Atlanta Area School for the Deaf and a Dean’s Fellow for the College of Education and Human Development at Georgia State University working on my Ph.D. in science education. My research focuses on teachers’ professional knowledge and skill in teaching science to Deaf students where I explore ways to support the growth of pre-service and in-service science teachers’ Pedagogical Content Knowledge to improve the science learning experiences for Deaf students. I have presented research at state, national, and international conferences for science teaching focused on topics concerning Deaf students including scientific-ASL discourse complexities and the development of science identity with Deaf students.
