American Association for the Advancement of Science, Washington, DC. Commission on Science Education.; National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification.
A brief statement of the importance of a liberal education for all teachers is followed by twelve guidelines for the planning, implementation and evaluation of programs for educating prospective secondary school mathematics and science teachers. Each guideline contains a brief rationale, describes the expected skills, and suggests strategies for developing desired competencies and attitudes. The guidelines concern humaneness, societal issues, nature of science and mathematics, science compentencies, mathematics for science teachers, basic mathematics competencies, algorithms and computers, modeling in science and mathematics, communication of science and mathematics, learning conditions, materials and strategies, and continuous learning. Four standards that each teacher-training institution should satisfy, and supporting materials prepared by the project committees or regional working groups, are included. Lists of persons and organizations involved in the guideline preparation are appended. (AL)
