The Achiever. Volume 4, Number 2
Ashby, Nicole, Ed.
US Department of Education
This Achiever contains a brief summary on the results of two major international studies: (1) 2003 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS); and (2) 2003 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA). In the 2003 TIMSS, American fourth- and eighth-graders significantly outperformed many of their international peers. In the 2003 PISA, U.S. ninth- and tenth-graders performed below the international average in math literacy and problem-solving. This document also includes a small sampling of the American Stars of Teaching. These are exemplary teachers who are successful in raising academic achievement for all their students, often through the use of innovative classroom strategies. This document also contains information on improving student achievement through technology. The final page of this document discusses the celebration of Black History Month and Presidents Day in the month of February.
