Implementing the Metric System: Grades K-6.
Wright, Joseph A.
This practicum was designed and implemented to instruct the staff of two elementary schools in the basic content of the metric system and to demonstrate some teaching strategies for instructing elementary students in metrics. A series of twenty after-school workshops was run on a weekly basis. A model was developed to aid other elementary schools within the district in planning in-service workshops on the metric system. Appendices include the workshop agenda, pre- and post-test scores of students, elementary teachers' survey, samples of learning activities, and a list of metric materials. (Author)
