A Guide for Building an Alliance for Science, Mathematics and Technology Education.
Triangle Coalition for Science and Technology Education, College Park, MD.
During the past decade, organizations and individuals in communities across the United States have come together in alliances to promote the improvement and reform of science, mathematics, and technology education in elementary and secondary schools. This handbook draws from the experiences of those pioneer local alliances to provide insights and practical guidance for others who want to help schools and students, but don't know where to begin. Topics of discussion include: (1) a rationale for building alliances; (2) anatomy of an alliance; (3) identifying leadership and recruiting partners; (4) steps to building consensus; (5) key components of successful alliances; (6) action and implementation; and (7) organization of alliances. A description of the Triangle Coalition, a list of the major organizations that assist alliances, a list of academic alliances, a checklist of whom to involve in alliances, principles for building and maintaining alliances, examples of alliance programs, and a chronological summary of selected reports dealing with the issue of educational reform are appended.
