Michigan Gateways Program #401
Michigan Gateways Spotlight Review
For our Fall '95 broadcasts, we collected Spotlight segments from
our previous three seasons of programming and put them together to
create a special three-part mini-series: Gateways Spotlight

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 new season begins with MATH REFORM ACROSS THE GRADES, the
first program in this mini-series, with a satellite broadcast on
October 6, 1995. November's program will feature DISCOURSE IN
MICHIGAN CLASSROOMS; the mini-series concludes with our December

Math Reform Across the Grades
In this collection of Michigan Gateways Spotlight segments, six
classroom scenes from kindergarten through high school provide a
look at the ongoing reform of mathematics education in Michigan.

Dwight Rich Middle School - Lansing
Jane Hannah-Smith's sixth grade class was one of the first
classrooms featured on Michigan Gateways, back in the Spring of
1993. On the day we visited, students were learning about surface
area and volume. Team teacher Elizabeth Jones taught the day's

Sturgis Middle School - Sturgis
Early in our second season, we traveled to Sturgis for a look at
sixth grade classes as teachers and students embarked on a new
"untracked" middle school mathematics program. Teachers Ellen
Eisele and Bill Dickey are featured.

Houghton Elementary School - Saline
On this 1995 visit to Saline, we found fifth-graders reporting on
interviews they had conducted with adults about their jobs. School
Counselor Jane McKie teaches the Career Awareness lesson.

Edmonson Middle School - Ypsilanti/Willow Run Community Schools
Students in sixth-grade classes taught here by Lori Brinkerhoff
and Michael Munn were found using computer spreadsheets to compile
data and create charts and graphs as part of their introduction to

Mason High School - Mason
In Carol Thomas's Algebra I and Pre-Calculus classes at Mason High
School, students use calculators and work in groups -- even when
the day's activity is a quiz.

Carpenter Elementary - Ann Arbor
Our second season of programming included this visit to Eileen
Donegan's kindergarten and Gwen Phelps' first grade classes, where
these teachers use alternative assessment strategies for
monitoring day-to-day progress of students.
