Developing a Publication Containing Elementary Teachers' Successful Mathematics Instruction Strategies.
Syster, Susan M.
Mathematics teachers are trained to assess students' abilities and instruction needs. Many teachers use creative teaching strategies, games, and various media to meet those needs. Teachers, though, are constantly searching for instructional strategies, time savers, games, materials, and other ways to improve teaching in mathematics classrooms. Since they have such busy schedules and lack the time to get together with fellow teachers to share ideas and visit each others' classrooms, a mathematics publication was developed to address these needs. The publication was written by and for teachers. Mathematics teachers shared ideas with other teachers in the district in articles which were published in the issue. A target group was pre-surveyed before the publication and post-surveyed after the publication was distributed. The knowledge and usefulness expressed by the target group indicated the desire for future issues of the publication within the school district. Included in this report are the purpose of this project, a brief literature review, a description of the project methods, results of the project, and recommendations. Copies of memos, surveys, and letters are appended. (Author/CW)
