As an associate professor of education and core faculty in the Middle and High School programs in the Graduate School of Education, David Nurenberg helps prepare the next generation of secondary school teachers to engage their students in learning, finding more effective alternatives to traditional lecture-based, skill-and-drill pedagogy.
David has taught high school humanities for 21 years and has had the privilege of working in suburban, urban, and international teaching and learning environments. David's dissertation, A study of the effects of peace education on academic achievement in an urban middle school, exemplifies his research focus—looking at ways in which student-centered, interdisciplinary, project-based learning can aid student learning and student socio-emotional well-being.
David is a coordinator for the G.L.O.B.E. (Global Learning Opportunities in Boston Area Education) consortium, which runs an interdisciplinary after-school course in Green Technology.
David also consults for Boston area middle and high schools and invites you to contact him if you are interested in how he can help work with your school or district to meet your goals.
