State Model Programs. Eisenhower Program for Mathematics and Science Education.
Wagner, Kay, Ed.
The Dwight D. Eisenhower Mathematics and Science Education Program of the U.S. Department of Education Program was designed to provide funding to improve the skills of teachers and the quality of instruction in science and mathematics in the nation's public and private elementary and secondary schools. This report contains listings of 142 model projects solicited from each state in the nation that are funded by the Eisenhower program. Each state was asked to provide one example of a model project by each of the three state program components: (1) state leadership activities; (2) local education funds; and (3) higher education grants. The purpose is to provide state and local program administrators, agency officials, policy makers and teachers with an overview of professional activities supported by the Eisenhower program. An introduction provides an overview of the program, describes to whom and for what type of activities funds are available, and discusses the need for model programs in professional development and inservice education. The programs are listed alphabetically by state and include the following information for each program: agency level; program name; grade levels; sponsoring agency; contact person; telephone number; purpose of program; funding scheme; number of participants; program description; major activities; and program continuation or replication. Indexes locate programs identified as: (1) gifted and talented programs; (2) disability-related programs; (3) mathematics programs; (3) mathematics and science programs; (4) rural programs; (5) science programs; (6) student programs; (7) teacher programs; (8) technology programs; and (9) urban programs.
