Recommendations for the improvement of science and mathematics education for American Indians by Rayna Green( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on three education levels (precollegiate, collegiate, and the graduate and professional levels), the recommendations are based both on "what appears to work" and on "what appears to be worth trying". A fourth group of recommendations is aimed at responsible governmental agencies and professional and other organizations. The recommendations include: that an assessment of science and mathematics education in schools serving Indian students be conducted; essential characteristics of successful approaches to Indian education in these areas be integrated; bilingual techniques must be used where language retention is maximal, especially on the elementary levels; an ethnoscientific approach to teaching high school science be used; concentrated attention should be given to math deficiencies; special programs must be established in fields where they do not now exist, I.E., physical sciences, mathematics, and resources development; greater efforts should be directed at identifying and recruiting Indian students for participation in special programs for minorities in scientific and technical fields; the developing Graduate Centers for Minority Education in Science and Engineering must make sure that they include within their plans, programs and staffing for the special needs of Indian students; adequate financial aid must be available to graduate students; some graduate and professional programs should conscientiously include a multi-cultural focus, specifically an Indian focus, in their training.

Report and recommendations by Rayna Green( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Participants from all levels of Indian and mathematics education, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and mathematics-related fields met to identify needs for mathematics education among American Indian students of all ages. In general, conferees were more pessimistic about the mathematics competence of American Indian post-secondary students than about the mathematics abilities of elementary students. They noted that the low achievement of American Indians in mathematics and mathematics-related fields was due to lack of training and that negative attitudes of teachers, counselors, and administrators were the most significant barriers to good mathematics education for American Indians. Conferees also noted that most testing determined deficiencies instead of proficiencies. Conferees stressed the need for more and better mathematics education for American Indian students at all levels. Participants noted specific problems and described specific strategies for mathematics education at primary, secondary, and post-secondary levels. They offered recommendations regarding networks of mathematics educators, advocacy efforts, assessment, information dissemination, materials development, and teacher training. Appendices include the conference agenda, a list of participants, a bibliography, and an article by Rayna Green entitled "Math Avoidance: A Barrier to American Indian Science Education and Science Careers."
