1970 Institute for Individualizing Mathematics for Migrant Students. Summary and Evaluation Analysis.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
On July 6-31, 1970, an institute for individualizing mathematics for migrant students was conducted in Edinburg, Texas by the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory. The aim was to produce professionals and paraprofessionals in Rio Grande Valley school districts with training in the skills of individualized mathematics instruction. Participants worked directly with students in grades 2-8, discussed the material and problems in its use, and learned to apply individually prescribed instruction methods in their own learning and in the teaching practicum. Twelve administrators and 33 teachers attended for 1 and 4 weeks respectively. A detailed description and evaluation of the institute were given in this report. The evaluation was based on a "daily" evaluation report after the first week, a pretest questionnaire which was later used as a posttest instrument (with additional items), and interviews with the administrators and teachers. Sections of this report were devoted to the rationale for the institute, objectives, training staff and methods, participants, and evaluation design. (NQ)
