         TE-MAT: TEACHER EDUCATION MATERIALS PROJECT

                   http://www.te-mat.org/

  This site was developed to support professional development 
  providers as they design and implement programs for 
  pre-service and in-service K12 mathematics and science 
  teachers. 

  The conceptual framework "Designing Effective Professional 
  Development" consists of these brief sections:

    - Understanding the Needs of the Target Audience
    - Deciding on the Purposes of the Professional 
        Development
    - Building on Current Knowledge about Professional 
        Development
    - Adapting Professional Development Programs to the 
        Particular Context
    - Selecting Appropriate Professional Development 
        Strategies and Materials
    - Preparing Professional Development Providers
    - Implementing Effective Professional Development
    - Evaluating the Quality and Impact of Professional 
        Development
