Improving Basic Skills in Reading and Mathematics. Final Report 1983-1984.
District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC.
The Basic Skills Center was developed to improve the reading and mathematics skills of students in the Junior High School Transition Program in 27 junior high schools and 4 middle schools in the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS). The Mathematics Teacher Resource Development portion of this project worked towards increasing teacher effectiveness in mathematics instruction. The target population for this group consisted of teachers of mathematics in the DCPS who are not certified as probationary or permanent mathematics teachers, those preparing to teach mathematics, and those teaching mathematics who are minimally qualified. A narrative summary is presented of evaluation results of both of these programs. In this summary, specific objectives for the program are listed with narrative discussion of the observed status of participants' accomplishments compared with the intended goals. Included in the appendixes are the evaluation instruments used and samples of resource development program information materials. A sample inservice course is also outlined. (JD)
