Thank you. After my first two weeks of reading this forum, I was on
the verge of dropping it. Not only was my mailbox cluttered with
useless personal snipes, but I was not finding any material of use to
me as an educator. Michelle and Judy's last messages have convinced
me to remain a part of this discussion. I apologize for my personal and
useless use of bandwidth above and now on with the show:

1) Michelle, forgive my idled brain, it is on summer break. Which
journal is JMB?

2) I will be leading a ten person team of K-16 educators in providing training
in both the NCTM and the new Science Standards as part of a project
sponsored by the Appalachain Educational Laboratory. Where can I find
references to similar projects of a high quality and the materials
they used?

3) In addition to a degree in Mathematics, I also have a degree in
Industrial Engineering. Every course I had in that program emphasized
that a standard has to be precise and measurable. That is in my
humble opinion the problem we face with any sort of reform. How do we
measure the level of sucess of the reform when the rest of the
environment is dynamic? In the absence of valid measurement, only
one's own belief can lead the way. That is scary. I believe that any
effort that gets educators to reconsider what they do and how they do
it is of value.

Thanks for your time.
