Making the Change: Pioneering Attempts in Implementing Reform in Mathematics Teacher Preparation.
Fisher, Patience O., Ed.; Leitzel, James R. C., Ed.
This document is primarily intended for postsecondary faculty who are interested in initiating change in the mathematical preparation of teachers. It has been compiled from the experiences of a two-and-one-half day summer workshop held in June 1994, followed by a year in which participating institutions attempted various ways to implement reform in mathematics teacher preparation. Along with discussing a collection of issues in teacher preparation, there are examples from selected institutions of how to deal with those issues. A discussion of the issues and recommendations for the preparation of elementary school teachers, and a discussion of guidelines for the academic preparation of mathematics faculty at two-year colleges is included. The majority of the document is appendices, which contain the following: institutional reports; mathematical preparation of elementary school teachers--issues and recommendations; guidelines for the academic preparation of mathematics faculty at two-year colleges; a workshop schedule; and a workshop participant list.
