With the help of a PRISM grant recently awarded to the ASU College of Education, area teachers will be better prepared to teach math and science to their students. PRISM (Partnership for Reform in Science and Mathematics), administered through the University System of Georgia, is a statewide education reform initiative to strengthen math and science programs throughout the state. The grant will provide ASU with $47,000 for three years and will allow the College of Education to offer enrichment programs for undergraduate education students and teachers who are already working in the education field. The grant was written by Dr. Gordon Eisenman, chair of teacher development.
The grant money will allow the college to partner with Burke County Schools to offer teachers there workshops on how to better teach these areas — particularly math. Other proposed programs include a conference for local teachers, mentoring programs, and a survey of recent graduates to help determine areas that should be addressed such as parental involvement and classroom behavior.
