Pilot Teacher-Development Program in Mathematics 1986-1987. Evaluation Report.
Institute for Independent Education, Inc., Washington, DC.
In the summer of 1986 the Institute for Independent Education brought to Washington, D.C., 27 teachers who teach mathematics to children enrolled primarily in grades five to eight at independent neighborhood schools that serve mainly African-American children in inner-city neighborhoods. The program included a training course in mathematics instruction along with a component of follow-up activities. The course came to be known as "MATH Alive!" This evaluation report discusses the structure of the program, its objectives, the evaluation design, and the results that were achieved, as well as some other variables which helped to shape the program. It also includes recommendations for the future design of similar courses of instruction. (TW)
