The centers, representing one of NSF's priority efforts in education, create innovative partnerships between universities, school districts and other educational partners to address critical issues in mathematics, science and technology education in K-12 classrooms and in universities. In Maryland, the Mid-Atlantic Center for Mathematics Teaching and Learning will focus on finding solutions to ease the shortage of mathematics education faculty and K-12 teachers. The center will work through innovative graduate programs as well as pre- service and in-service mathematics education for K-12 teachers. It will use distance learning opportunities to allow for availability of courses to students and teachers in all partner organizations.

Today, Curtis tells Education World writer Mary Daniels Brown how she accomplished that. Included: Comments from librarians and other experts on the state of our schools' libraries and advice from Della Curtis on mounting your own successful campaign for funding for new library books. In May 2000 the Baltimore (Maryland) County Council approved a $10.5 million budget for the purchase of new books for libraries in all of the county's middle and high schools.

Extractions: Kent County, MD (Dec. 2, 2000) Are cooperative learning, multiculturalism and conflict resolution important issues in your curriculum? Are teachers in your school or school district searching for ways to incorporate multicultural perspectives into their instructional initiatives and cooperative learning into classroom pedagogy? Do you teach about Japan and desire to delve deeper into the culture? The Mid-Atlantic Region Japan-in-the-Schools (MARJiS) Program at the University of Maryland at College Park announces a series of in-service workshops available for teacher professional development. MARJiS workshops provide quality instruction in cross-cultural teaching and learning from experts in the field. And best of all, they are free to educators in the Mid-Atlantic region. Your school can be the recipient of a MARJiS workshop simply by assembling a minimum of thirty educators for a five-hour period. Funded by a generous grant from the Embassy of Japan in Washington D.C., MARJiS workshops aim to: 1) provide a rich, intellectually exciting program; 2) deepen participants knowledge and understanding of multicultural instruction using Japan as a model; 3) provide field-tested instructional materials for immediate use in the classroom; and 4) help participants become familiar with the broad array of important educational institutions and media centers that can add to their knowledge of Japan and East Asia.
