The Eisenhower National Clearinghouse for Mathematics & Science Education

The Eisenhower National Clearinghouse for Mathematics and Science
Education (ENC) is pleased to announce a new Web site, Teacher
Change: Improving K-12 Mathematics. This project was designed for
local, state, regional, and national leaders who are working with
teachers on the challenging task of improving K-12 mathematics
teaching and learning.

The Web site offers professional development workshop activities,
full text journal articles about teacher change, teacher narratives,
and an overview of school change written by international
authorities Michael Fullan and Andy Hargreaves.

In addition, reports and publications from the Third International
Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) have been integrated
throughout this project, since examination of this data has been so
productive in the dialog about school improvement.

The professional development activities, created by the Math and
Science Consortium at the North Central Regional Educational
Laboratory (NCREL), provide facilitator notes, handouts, and
PowerPoint presentations.

As Michael Fullan and Andy Hargreaves suggest in their article
"Teacher Change," which is included on this site, successful teacher
and classroom change is possible only when there exists an
atmosphere of interactive professionalism for teachers. This
professionalism requires collaboration, reflection, continuous
improvement, and greater mastery as well as satisfaction in
teaching. This project supports those ideas and provides a wide
variety of materials designed to help teachers as they implement
