Mathematics Teacher Resource Development. Final Report 1982-83. E.C.I.A. Chapter 2.
This final report on the Mathematics Teacher Resource Development project of the District of Columbia schools identifies the background and project objectives, with a description of the project; outlines the external evaluation design; and describes the results. The target population consisted of teachers needing courses to meet mathematics certification requirements, mathematics teachers needing to upgrade their skills, and potential mathematics teachers for recruiting to District schools. The plan included courses offered through cooperation with local universities as well as the District Mathematics Department, with teachers demonstrating skills acquired. A symposium and other methods assisted in the recruitment of teachers. Staff development and credit courses were taken by 167 teachers, with the enrollment in 11 certification courses totaling 92. So far, 61 teachers have earned credit toward certification as mathematics teachers. Appendices present the evaluation model scheme, training support survey forms, needs assessment forms and results, samples of mathematics course offerings, the symposium agenda and committees, recruitment and placement plan, training plan, comprehensive plan for mathematics education, self-evaluation survey forms, and courses in the certification program.
