Abstract

Research Based Teaching, or helping teachers learn enough about research to make informed policy decisions is important to improving mathematics and science education. To develop and work with Research Based Teaching, public schools, and university faculty must encourage a " community of learner/researchers" that provide teachers with an environment in which they learn "how to teach," deeply learn subject matter knowledge and reflect on and discuss pedagogical content and the role of research. Informed decisions on what and how to teach must be based on research, not arm chair philosophy.This presentation provides information on the first year of work in eight RPLs and the faculty involvement with these schools. The discussion will include successes and failures of this work, approaches to the development and implementation of RPLs and the development of the research agenda to create the culture or research based teaching .
