INSERVICE MATHEMATICS EDUCATION. (REPORT OF A CONFERENCE HELD UNDER THE JOINT AUSPICES OF THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION AND THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF MATHEMATICS, WASHINGTON, D.C., MARCH 7-8, 1963).
ABELL, THEODORE L.; SCHULT, VERYL
AS A RESULT OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW MATHEMATICS CURRICULUMS ON ALL LEVELS, THE NEED FOR INSERVICE EDUCATION OF TEACHERS IS CRITICAL. THIS CONFERENCE MET IN ORDER TO STUDY EXISTING PROGRAMS AND TO REPORT PROMISING PRACTICES, TO EXPLORE WAYS OF FINANCIAL SUPPORT, AND TO DEVELOP PLANS FOR PILOT PROGRAMS IN STATES WHERE ASSISTANCE IS NEEDED. IN SPITE OF MUCH PROGESS, MANY MATHEMATICS TEACHERS HAVE NOT BEEN REACHED BY INSERVICE EDUCATION, ESPECIALLY IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. MOST PERSONNEL TEACHING INSERVICE PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN FROM UNIVERSITIES AND STATE DEPARTMENTS OF EDUCATION, BUT OTHER SOURCES SHOULD BE TAPPED TO PROVIDE THE NUMBER OF INSTRUCTORS NEEDED. FUNDS FROM LOCAL DISTRICTS, BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY SHOULD SUPPLEMENT WHAT IS NOW AVAILABLE FROM STATE AND NATIONAL SOURCES. PROGRAMS SHOULD BE INCREASED. COURSES COULD BE MADE MORE WIDELY AVAILABLE BY THE USE OF MEDIA SUCH AS TELEVISION, FILMS AND TEACHING MACHINES. THIS BULLETIN INCLUDES REPORTS ON INSERVICE EDUCATION PROGRAMS FROM SELECTED STATES, PANEL REPORTS ON THE ROLE OF PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES IN PLANNING AND SUPPORTING INSERVICE PROGRAMS, AND THE DELBERATIONS OF THE CONFERENCE SEMINARS. CHECK LISTS GIVE ADVICE ON STARTING ON EXPANDING A PROGRAM, IN FINANCING IT AND EVALUATION. THE APPENDIX INCLUDES A BIBLIOGRAPHY.
