Eric.ed.gov – Accelerated Math and Science Program Improvement Project Evaluation Report YR2.

The Accelerated Math and Science (AMS) Project is a 3 year program funded by the California Migrant Education Program Improvement Program. It targets 6th, 7th, and 8th grade low-achieving migrant students who are 2 to 4 years behind their language peer group. Two questions guided the second year evaluation study for the Region IX Migrant Education program: (1) How successful was the training provided to migrant students in science and math?, and (2) Did the attitude of participating migrant students change towards science and math? Middle schools, low achieving, migrant students (n=94) were recruited based upon: (1) inappropriate age/grade placement; (2) those students whose parents expressed a high degree of interest and commitment, to ensure student attendance in AMS; (3) students who had absentee rates of 10% or more annually; and (4) students who had a minimum 3rd-grade Spanish reading level. AMS program activities consisted of a 19 day curriculum consisting of 80 to 95 hours of direct instruction. Participating teachers were selected based on their credentials or subject matter authorizations and commitment to the AMS program. Pre- and post-data in four skill areas indicated student growth in all four areas: attitudes towards math and science, metric system skills, observational skills, and scientific method skills. In addition, review of daily work in student journals suggested that students improved in their ability to describe their work. Nine appendices contain supporting data including a participant profile, graphic profiles of results (pre and post test scores, photographs, and a student mathematics survey. (MKR)

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
