Orlando Meetings: Presentation Summary


Back to Orlando: Pre-Service Teacher Ed


This is the summary of a presentation given at the Joint Mathematics Meetings, January 10-13, 1996, Orlando, Florida.

Ideas and idea sources
for creating active learning environments for prospective elementary teachers

For the past three summers, mathematics faculty from across the country met at the NSF-funded Project PROMPT (Professors Rethinking Options in Mathematics for Prospective Teachers) workshops to share ideas, activities, and strategies for improving the mathematical preparation of prospective elementary teachers. Consequently, there is a growing wealth of ideas for those in the mathematics community who are interested in creating active learning environments for prospective elementary teachers. In this session, attendees will engage in a sample activity, gain information on related electronic resources, and find ways to connect with the growing network of colleagues who are working to create active learning environments for their students.
