Milestones 2000: Reform Efforts in Mathematics and Science Teacher Education Programs at SUSTAIN Collaboratives in Ohio.
Wagner, Sigrid; Meiring, Steven P.; Costner, Kelly M.
The profiles in this report present a snapshot of recent reform efforts in mathematics and science teacher education programs at institutions participating in Project SUSTAIN (Schools and Universities Statewide Teaching Approaches to Inquiry) collaboratives. Data were collected during the year 2000, and respondents were asked to describe developments over the past 3-5 years. Some of the initiatives were supported by SUSTAIN funding, and some were supported by other state, federal, and/or private funding. Because respondents could provide only information accessible to them, this report necessarily presents a conservative picture of the wide range of efforts underway throughout the state of Ohio to improve the preparation of mathematics and science teachers for the 21st century.
