Grants and Contracts Details
Appalachian Collaborative Center for Learning, Assessment and Instruction in Mathematics (ACCLAIM) The Appalachian Collaborative Center for Learning, Assessment, and Instruction in Mathematics (ACCLAIM) is designed to build a mathematics infrastructure in the Appalachian regions ofKentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, and West Virginia. It will provide a model and resources for other isolated, rural, poverty-stricken areas across the country. ACCLAIM links resources from the University ofKentucky (UK), Ohio University (OU), the University ofTennessee (UT), and Marshall University (MU) with the Appalachian Rural Systemic Initiative (ARSI) to capitalize upon the successful professional development infrastructure established by ARSI over the past five years. The mathematics infrastructure in Appalachia will be enhanced through (a) advanced degree programs in mathematics and mathematics education, (b) job-embedded teacher preparation and professional development programs, and (c) mathematics education research in a rural context. Online courses and existing distance learning networks will make these programs accessible to educators in isolated Appalachian areas, as well as other rural areas ofthe United States. These technologies also will provide a context for extensive research on learning, teaching, and professional development in rural areas.
