A story of reform: Math, Science, Technology Investigations (MSI) in room 34 at Bay Street Community School

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

This paper explores one school's implementation of a locally developed curriculum reform known as 'Math-Science Investigations'. At one level, it offers an account of a reform told from the perspective of a classroom teacher and her 3rd- and 4th-graders. At another level, it reconstructs their experience to explore the understandings of the general process of change developed from this situation: the critical role relationship plays in the process of reform; the recognition of the value of time as a component in change; and the necessary respect for continuity of experience of individuals in considering growth. At yet another level, it considers ways in which a story, such as 'Math-Science Investigations', exhibits characteristics of metaphor.
