"Think Metric," An Inservice Program for Teachers.
Dunbar, Robert E.
This document reports the results of a practicum to instruct the staff of one elementary school in the basic content of the metric system and to demonstrate some teaching strategies for instructing elementary students in metrics. A series of six after-school workshops were run on a weekly basis. Details are given concerning the planning, organization, selection of materials, and evaluation of the workshop sessions. A model is developed to aid other schools in planning inservice workshops on the metric system. Appendices include a copy of the metric system survey given to teachers, lists of metric teaching materials, the workshop agenda, pre- and posttests given to teachers, a copy of the evaluation questionnaire, and details of the model for an introductory methods workshop (including samples of learning activities and a list of metric reading materials).
