The addition of engineering to many state standards has created a need for effective teacher professional development. The Institute for P-12 Engineering Research and Learning (INSPIRE) facilitated summer engineering workshops for teachers in grades two to four. Participants completed the Noticing Activity, an assessment meant to gauge teachers' ability to notice and discuss engineering and its role in society. This work in progress describes the coding system being developed to analyze teacher responses. Analysis of teacher responses to the Noticing Activity will be used to determine what teachers notice about engineering in society and, later, help study how teachers discuss engineering with their students. Results from the coding will be used for programmatic evaluation and revision.
