Michigan Gateways Program #403
Michigan Gateways Spotlight Review
Beyond the Classroom

One of the most popular features of regular programs in the
Michigan Gateways series, each Spotlight segment takes viewers on
a visit to a classroom, staff development workshop, or other
educational setting for scenes of reform taking place in Michigan
math and science education.

Our Michigan Gateways Spotlight Review mini-series, featuring
Spotlight segments from our previous three seasons of programming,
concludes with a look Beyond the Classroom.

Reformed teaching and learning depends on a significant commitment
from teachers, parents and students outside of the period between
class hour bells. For this Spotlight Review program, we pulled
together scenes of teachers, parents and students working beyond
the classroom as mathematics and science education evolves in

Lansing Kindergarten Teachers - Lansing Public Schools
In this segment from our 1994 season, we dropped in on a meeting
of kindergarten teachers as they worked to select new mathematics
text materials. Lansing Public Schools mathematics consultant Liz
Jones led the discussion.
Michigan Operation Physics - Kalamazoo
Operation Physics is a highly regarded workshop program that
serves to update teachers on both science content and pedagogy. We
visited a workshop of the Michigan chapter at Western Michigan
University in the summer of 1993.
Kids' College - Ingham County ISD and MSU
This summer science program for gifted and talented students
doubles as a professional development experience for teachers. We
visited in 1993, and spoke with participating teachers.
Averill Elementary School, Lansing;
and Dexter Community Schools
From the spring of 1995, this segment features a group of teachers
from Dexter Community Schools on a visit to Averill Elementary
School in Lansing to see one way mathematics education can be
approached within a multi-age classroom.
Longfellow Elementary School - Pontiac
On "Family Math Fun Night" at Longfellow Elementary School,
parents come in with their children for a hands-on orientation to
today's reformed mathematics education. We visited in the winter
of 1994.
High School Honors Science Program - East Lansing
Each summer, students from around Michigan go beyond the classroom
and into the laboratory, as part of the High School Honors Science
Program at Michigan State University. We originally featured this
segment in the fall of 1994.
