Recruiting Mathematics and Science Teachers through Nontraditional Programs: Case Studies.
Hudson, Lisa; And Others
This document is one of a series of studies that surveyed recruits to teaching drawn from nontraditional pools, such as retirees, homemakers, career switchers, and recent college graduates with mathematics and science degrees. The preparation programs for these prospective teachers are "nontraditional" in that they are designed specifically to prepare candidates who did not engage in undergraduate teacher preparation programs. The document gives detailed case studies of 10 of these nontraditonal programs. The emphasis is on the structure of the programs, the reasons for their initiation, the recruitment pools toward which they are targeted, and program requirements. (JD)
