Changing School Mathematics: A Responsive Process.
Price, Jack, Ed.; Gawronski, J. D., Ed.
Presented is a professional reference book on change, an aid to mathematics educators in implementing the recommendations found in the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' (NCTM's) publication, "An Agenda for Action: Recommendations for School Mathematics of the 1980's." The text is divided into three major parts that discuss different facets of change: the process, strategies for implementation, and how to apply this knowledge to bring about change. The introduction reviews the "Agenda for Action" as a potential agent for change in the mathematics curriculum. The chapters are grouped into the following parts: (1) Changing Schools; (2) Changing Mathematics Programs; and (3) Changing, and Being Changed By, Others. The document concludes with an Appendix that contains the entire contents of "An Agenda for Action" (ED 186 265). (MP)
