Teacher, Industry and Environment (TIE).
Holmes, Neal J.; Powers, Michael H.
A description of the Teacher, Industry and Environment (TIE) educational improvement project at Central Missouri State Univesity is provided in this report. TIE is designed for Missouri high school chemistry teachers, involving 73 of them in a weekend workshop, meeting with chemists, engineers, and educators to assist them in using resources beyond the standard textbook. Following the workshop, they designed and developed a teaching packet or research project and participated in a Reporting Conference in which they reported on their packets or projects. Among TIE's objectives are: to enrich participant knowledge of the chemical industry of Missouri and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources; to enrich opportunities regarding the applications of computers; and to find examples of laboratory activities and research projects that have shown promise. Probably the single most exciting unanticipated outcome of the TIE conference is the desire of other states to host their own TIE workshop. Appended are: the 1987 TIE workshop evaluation; the TIE pre-workshop questionnaire; the TIE 87 reporting conference evaluation; the TIE participant survey; and the TIE 87 teacher participant list. Tables are included. Contains 10 references. (Author/SM)
