Pacific Eisenhower Mathematics and Science Regional Consortium Final Performance Report, October 1, 1995-February 28, 2001.
Pacific Resources for Education and Learning, Honolulu, HI.
The Pacific Eisenhower Mathematics and Science Regional Consortium was established at Pacific Resources for Education and Learning (PREL) in October, 1992 and completed its second funding cycle in February 2001. The Consortium is a collaboration among PREL, the Curriculum Research and Development Group (CRDG) at the University of Hawaii, and the U.S.-affiliated Pacific Region's departments and ministries of education. The Pacific Consortium provided support for the improvement of mathematics and science education in the Pacific Region and across the nation. It built upon the regionally shared vision that all Pacific children will be scientifically and mathematically literate. The Consortium worked to improve mathematics and science curriculum, instruction, and assessment and to strengthen Pacific regional resources that enable sustained improvement. Progress towards achieving these goals was accomplished by coordinating mathematics and science resources, supporting the identification and implementation of standards-based mathematics and science instructional programs, and providing training and technical assistance. The Consortium worked throughout the Pacific Region to identify and carry out projects and activities that met its objectives and furthered local initiatives. The Pacific Consortium supported a variety of activities including the development of standards and frameworks; training and technical assistance to implement culturally appropriate professional-development programs and standards-based classroom practices; technology growth; and outreach efforts aimed at parents, community members, and others in the learning environment. This document contains the final performance reports. (ASK)
