Butler, Thelma R.
A model for organizing an introductory in-service workshop for elementary school teachers in the basic fundamentals and contents of the metric system is presented.

Contents include: Background Information, Development of Program Strategy Through Review of the Literature, Practicum Objectives, Implementation of the Program, Evaluation of the Metric Workshop Inservice Program, Institutionalization of the Program, Conclusions and Recommendations, tests and questionnaires used, and their results.
