Building A Case for Mathematics Specialist Programs


"In 2004, the 'Mathematics Specialists in K-5 Schools: Research and Policy Pilot Study' garnered support from the Teacher Professional Continuum (TPC) of the National Science Foundation (NSF). The project's focus was to determine the effectiveness of a school-based Mathematics Specialist program in grades K-5. Preparation, deployment, and support of twenty-four Mathematics Specialists in two cohorts of 12 was at the heart of the project, utilizing well-designed research to gauge the impact on teachers who are supported by Mathematics Specialists, and on the mathematics achievement by these teachers' students."
