Provided by the
Eisenhower Regional Consortia for Mathematics and Science Education
and the
Eisenhower National Clearinghouse for
Mathematics and Science Education


Time: Monday, May 11, 1998
1:00 - 3:00 PM Eastern Time
(Color Pattern and Tones will begin at 12:45 PM EDT)

Satellite: Galaxy 3 (3R)

With data on half a million students from 41 countries, the Third
International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) is the largest,
most comprehensive, and most rigorous international study of schools
and students ever. TIMSS and its results present an opportunity for
educators to examine teaching and learning and how their students
achieve in a variety of mathematics and science subjects. The data
from TIMSS provide educators and policymakers with information and
insights, not only about educational achievement but also about
educational culture, curriculum analysis, and teaching practice.

Transmitted live via satellite, this nationwide broadcast will
feature: 1) consideration of TIMSS in local, national, and
international contexts; and 2) various TIMSS-related resources,
including the U.S. Department of Education's TIMSS Resource Kit. It
will also introduce resources and services available through the
Eisenhower Regional Consortia for Mathematics and Science Education
and the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse (ENC), including ENC's new
website and CD-ROM, "Tools for Discussion: Attaining Excellence
Through TIMSS," at http://timss.enc.org. Focus areas will include:

* Study Methodology
* Achievement
* Curriculum
* Teaching
* Lives of Teachers and Students
* Implications
* Resources Available

These topics will be presented and discussed by a panel of national
science and mathematics professionals participating both in the
television studio and over a special two-way telephone bridge. A
variety of video clips keyed to significant TIMSS findings and TIMSS
Resource Kit materials will be integral to the program. Those
viewing this telecast will have the opportunity to make comments and
ask questions by means of phone or fax. Information regarding phone
and fax numbers will appear on the viewers' television screens
periodically during the show.

Real-time viewing and phone interaction is invited and encouraged
from:

Teachers Higher Education Faculty
State Agency Personnel Pre-Service Teachers
Board Members Parents
Administrators Staff Developers
Community Patrons

NOTE: The broadcast will be transmitted "on open" and may be
received without cost providing no charge is made to those viewing.
In addition, the broadcast may be freely taped for later use by
schools, colleges, parent groups and other education-related
agencies.

Studio, phone bridge, and video contributors will include:

* Peirce Hammond, U.S. Department of Education
* Ralph T. Nelsen, Science & Mathematics Consortium for
Northwest Schools
* John Sutton, Eisenhower High Plains Consortium for
Mathematics & Science at McREL
* Arlene Mitchell, Eisenhower High Plains Consortium for
Mathematics & Science at McREL
