Preparing Elementary Teachers to Teach Mathematics: A Problem-solving Approach. Final Report. Volume IV: School Component.
Gorman, Jacqueline; And Others
The "Preparing Elementary Teachers to Teach Mathematics (PETTM) Project" (1988-1991) was a cooperative university/school effort to improve the teaching of mathematics by elementary teachers with its primary focus on improving the university training of preservice teachers (PSTs) in mathematics. This document, volume VI of the project's 5-volume final report, describes the "School Component" of the project. The "School Component" addresses project goals 3 and 4. The report is divided into eight sections. An introductory section includes the background and rationale for the project and a description of its four components. An overview of the school component and a profile of the elementary school chosen as the site are provided next, and subsequent sections describe interventions undertaken at the school to create a problem-solving atmosphere, teacher resource books and videotapes developed for instruction, immediate and long-term impact of the project on the school, and insights into the inservice process. Publications and presentations related to the school component and a description of related instructional products are provided. (MDH)
