Discussion on the Professional Standards

This past summer, Annie Fetter asked if I would lead a discussion on
another publication, similar to one I did on "Everybody Counts" last
winter-spring. I've been thinking about it and have decided to try a
discussion series built around NCTM's "Professional Standards for Teaching
Mathematics," published in 1991.

If you wish to participate and don't have your own copy, there is a
pretty good chance that your institution does. I'll give folks a few
days to locate copies, and will post my first set of discussion issues on
Friday, September 22nd. It will be my intention to cover ground at a
leisurely pace so that those who have not previously read the document
can easily do so as we go along. With few exceptions, I'll try to post a
new set every Friday and will attempt to facilitate discussion as we go

Please note that participation in this discussion will assume that you
have access to and have actually read the relevant parts of the
document. I will not generally reproduce any of the content here. For
those wishing to read ahead, I'll cover the first 15 pages this Friday.
I hope this will be of value to the listserv subscribers.
