Sharing Success in the Southeast: Math, Science, and Computer Education.
Southeastern Regional Vision for Education (SERVE), Tallahassee, FL.
The Sharing Success program, recognizes exemplary public school programs and practices in the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Each year, SERVE emphasizes a specific program area for recognition based on one of the national goals for education. This "Sharing Success" publication documents several dozen of the region's most effective programs in the areas of mathematics, science, and technology (computer-assisted instruction). Programs are ranked for quality and innovation and are presented in three sections: (1) Programs of Excellence, highest rated programs (21) in the areas of Mathematics, Science, Math/Science, and Technology (e.g., science--tropical rain forest, summer science fun lab; math--elementary math lead teachers, problem-solving approach to algebra; math/science--Hayes Cooper Center [magnet school]; technology--writing to write); (2) Quality Programs (46) meeting a high standard (e.g., computers in elementary education, outdoor education, open-air classroom); and (3) Promising Programs and Practice (13) that have yet to be fully established. A one-page description of the program is provided for each in the "Excellent" category; briefer half-page summaries are provided for the "Quality" category; and one paragraph summaries for the "Promises" in print. All summaries contain information concerning the contact person and the guideline(s) of the program. The final section includes a very brief description of the National Diffusion Network (NDN), the names of locations of the region; NDN state facilitators and a brief sampling (21) of related NDN programs elsewhere in the United States.
