Teacher Shortage in Science and Mathematics: Myths, Realities, and Research. Proceedings of a Conference Sponsored by the National Institute of Education (Washington, District of Columbia, February 10-11, 1983).
Taylor, John L., Ed.
This conference was designed to identify salient elements of the national science/mathematics teacher shortage, add corollary data to the existing body of knowledge, and to influence and guide future NIE research in the area. The proceedings include: welcoming and keynote addresses by, respectively, Manuel J. Justiz and T. H. Bell; five commissioned research reviews and analyses; six program papers; and edited transcripts of discussions following each paper. The research reviews and analyses include: "Supply and Demand for Science and Mathematics Teachers" (Betty Vetter); "National Needs for Science and Technology Literacy: The Army as a Case Study" (Wilson Talley); "Research in Science Education" (Wayne Welch); "Taking Mathematics Teaching Seriously: Reflections on a Teacher Shortage" (Jeremy Kilpatrick, James Wilson); and "Preparation of Teachers: Myths and Realities" (Anne Flowers). The program papers include: "The Teacher Shortage in Mathematics and Science: The Los Angeles Story" (Rosalyn Heyman); "PRISM--A Program for Students Built upon Professional Growth Experience for Teachers" (Douglas Seager); "Teacher Shortage in Science and Mathematics: What is Houston Doing about it?" (Patricia Shell); "Argonne Supports Precollege Education in Science and Mathematics" (Juanita Bronaugh); "Science Museums and Science Education" (Bonnie VanDorn); and "Policy Alternatives: Education for Economic Growth" (Roy Forbes). The concluding section discusses possible research and practice directions. (JN)
