THE APPALACHIAN MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE PARTNERSHIP


The appalachian mathematics and science partnership

The Partnership’s primary support is a $22 million dollar grant over five years from the National Science Foundation (NSF).


The appalachian mathematics and science partnership

Partners include

  • 52 Rural School districts in KY, TN and VA

  • 9 Higher education institutions in the region


The appalachian mathematics and science partnership

AMSP seeks to reform and strengthen math and science instruction in pre K-12 classrooms in the Central Appalachian region.


The appalachian mathematics and science partnership

  • Performance will be improved through the collaboration of all partners.

  • A more specific AMSP goal is to eliminate the math and science achievement gap in the Central Appalachian region.


The appalachian mathematics and science partnership

Part of AMSP’s strategy is to establish an integrated elementary, secondary and higher education system.


The appalachian mathematics and science partnership

The system will feature a continuum of learning as partners at all levels capitalize on opportunities to be both teachers and learners.


The appalachian mathematics and science partnership

The four major related program initiatives are:

  • Pre-service and administrator education

  • Professional development of pre K-12 personnel

  • Student learning opportunities, including parent/community engagement

  • Research to advance the understanding of rural education reform


The appalachian mathematics and science partnership

  • The summer institutes are examples of professional development activities.

  • The summer institutes are strongly related to the other three initiatives.

SUMMER INSTITUTES

  • They benefit from planning and development of pre-service coursework that has occurred.

  • They will be followed by implementation in participants’ classrooms.


The appalachian mathematics and science partnership

Evaluation of the institutes and follow-up implementation will help inform pre-service courses for teachers, in-service education and instruction in K-12 classrooms.
