Involving Public Schools in Mathematics Teacher Education.
Aichele, Douglas B.
After an introduction concerning the mathematics teacher education program at Oklahoma State University, this document evaluates the seminars conducted in connection with this program. Two types of seminars were used. The first type consisted of interaction sessions and involved virtually no public school input. The second type was organized to provide an opportunity for interaction among mathematics student teachers and public school mathematics teachers and administrators. The second type of seminar involved public school personnel. Four of the second type of seminars were held, and both student teachers and public school personnel answered a questionnaire after each session. The topics selected included the following: (a) expectations and anxieties of mathematics student teachers, (b) discipline, (c) enrichment, and (d) evaluation. The seminars were evaluated by both student teachers and public school personnel as (a) having clearly defined objectives, (b) being well-organized, (c) being worthwhile, and (d) being something which participants would strongly recommend to future groups of teachers. (Supportive tables are included throughout the text.) (PB)
