The Wright State Model School Initiative: A Summary of Efforts Made to Scale Up Reform in Mathematics and Science Education During Year One.
Johnson, Carla C.; Damnjanovic, Arta
This study investigates whole-school and district efforts to change mathematics and science instruction at their sites during the first year of reform. Two middle schools, one high school, and one elementary school participated in this study. The Model Schools Program which is utilized in this study features a constructivist approach. Teams of teachers and administrators from participating schools design and implement their own mathematics and science reform plans with assistance from university faculty, acting as coaches for the school teams. Findings indicate that significant change can take place in classroom teaching practices through teacher-led reform, and the professional development must be held within a collaborative context using university faculty as coaches, team members, and stakeholders in the reform.
