Designing Methods Courses for Secondary School Mathematics Teachers. Papers from a Symposium Arranged by the Illinois Council on Mathematics Education.
Shumaker, John A., Ed.; Potter, Meredith W., Ed.
Collected in this document are papers presented at a conference on designing a mathematics methods course for secondary school teachers. Papers are organized under the following categories: (1) Realistic goals for a methods course, (2) Minimal content for a methods course, and (3) Teaching strategies used in methods courses. The seven short papers included under teaching strategies cover mathematical ideas which determine strategies, micro-teaching, modular organization, laboratory approach, student-centered strategy, discovery, and tutoring skills. The document concludes with a paper discussing creativity in teaching. Methods course syllabi are collected in Appendix I, while Appendix II gives a list of conference participants. (DT)
