Metric Workshop for Teachers. Book 6. Teacher Training. Cherrington-Fearon-Massey Series of Six Metric Books.
Cherrington, Don
The workbook contains materials developed for a workshop on an introduction to metric measure for elementary and junior high school teachers. The workshop was designed to provide the participants with a variety of metric measuring experiences. The activities are organized under six major topics: Linear measurement, weight, area, volume, capacity measure, and temperature. Presented for each topic are the specific objective, material required, and list of activities to be completed. The section on linear measurement is the largest, involving 39 activities to be completed in a one and 1/2-hour session. Also included in the document are the workshop agenda, instructions for a group discussion on teaching the metric system, and a planning and evaluation form for a metric project to be completed at the participant's school. An 8-page instructor's guide accompanies the booklet. The guide provides information on how to conduct the workshop and includes a description of the materials required for the activities, an explanation of basic metric terminology, and a quiz to be administered to workshop participants. Included also is ordering information for the first five books in the series, one for teaching metrics in each of four grade levels (K-3, 4-6, 7-10, and 11-14) and one for teaching metrics for home use.
