Integrated Science-Mathematics Education Project (ISMEP). Set of Modules.
Boggess, Gary W.
The Integrated Science-Mathematics Education Project (ISMEP) is an NSF-funded, interdisciplinary science/mathematics education program for preservice elementary school teachers which fosters an increase in scientific and mathematical literacy, improved attitudes toward science and mathematics, and enhancement of intellectual development on the part of classroom teachers and public school pupils. ISMEP courses blend scientific, mathematical, and educational components while providing classroom, laboratory, and practicum experiences relevant to elementary school programs. Although an overview of the project, organizational flow chart, checklists, brochures, and an evaluation report are included, the major portion of the document is devoted to the modules used in the program. Individual's modules contain objectives, instructional references and materials, procedures, and assessment criteria. Sources used in the modules include activities from the "Science Course Improvement Study" and "Science A Process Approach," and other elementary science and mathematics curriculum projects.
