Thank you Scott, this looks like a very worth while conference. I wonder if
along with the math and science they would consider some course work in
"character building"; you know, the integrity stuff - honesty, trust, your
word is you, do not lie and do admit your mistakes.

In the Spring of 2002, STEMTEC (Science, Technology, Engineering and
Mathematics Teacher Education Collaborative) is hosting an International
Conference on Transforming Math and Science Education in the K16 Continuum.
We thought perhaps some of your subscribers would be interested in the
conference.   Would it be possible for you to post the following
informational message?
Thanks very much,

SCOPE: Pathways to Change focuses on transforming college math and science
teaching for all students, and especially for the future K12 teachers who
will prepare the next generations of college students. Examples of such
changes are inquiry-based teaching, group work (cooperative learning),
alternative assessment, and the use of educational technology. Another
example is the use of peer teaching or working with younger students to
improve student learning and to stimulate thinking about teaching as a
