Professional Development That Mingles Word Wizards and Number Crunchers.
Stroble, Beth; Karp, Karen S.
English Education, v33 n3 p233-45 Apr 2001
Describes a summer institute designed to connect those self-identified "word wizards" and "number crunchers"--those teachers who might name themselves as either more comfortable with written literacy or with numeracy. Concludes that teachers need professional development that provides the opportunity to team with others (different disciplines, different grade levels, different ranges of experiences) in an environment that encourages team exploration.
