Invitation for Participation in Research
http://www.llri.org/html/Recruitment/InvitationResearch.htm
The LessonLab Research Institute seeks math teachers of grades five through seven to participate in a federally funded research study.
In exchange for permission to videotape one of your lessons and a few hours of your time online, you'll get a $250 Amazon.com gift certificate and a copy of your lesson.
What you'll do:
 complete a background survey
 respond to a set of video clips of math lessons on fractions
 complete a survey on mathematics teaching
 allow LessonLab to videotape one fraction lesson
 administer a short pre and posttest on fractions to your students
In exchange for allowing LessonLab to videotape one fraction lesson on either ratios/proportions or variables/expressions/equations, math teachers of grades 57 can also earn a $200 Amazon.com gift certificate.
What you'll do:
 allow LessonLab to videotape one fraction lesson on either ratios/proportions or variables/expression/equations
