Making Math Leaders: The San Francisco Math Leadership Project. Final Evaluation Report, Project Year 1986-87.
This document provides a description and evaluation of a project designed to develop leadership among K-8 mathematics teachers in San Francisco (California). The project attempted to: (1) provide teams of urban teachers with a year-long program to improve mathematical problem solving skills, build confidence, and increase classroom effectiveness; (2) provide participants with ongoing training; (3) provide support for these teachers as they developed workshops for their colleagues; and (4) enlarge the group of mathematics leaders in the San Francisco Bay Area. The report concludes that data from a variety of sources indicate that the 1987 project year was a highly successful one. (PK)
