  27. 29. teacher characteristics* A projected 3.7 million full-time-equivalent (FTE) elementary and secondary school teachers were engaged in classroom instruction in the fall of 2007. This number has risen 17 percent since 1997. The 2007 projected number of FTE teachers includes 3.2 million public school teachers and 0.5 million private school teachers *from NCES, 2007retrieved 24 August 2008 from
  28. 30. teacher characteristics* The number of public school teachers has risen faster than the number of public school students over the past 10 years, resulting in declines in the pupil/teacher ratio. In the fall of 2007, there were a projected 15.4 public school pupils per teacher, compared with 16.8 public school pupils per teacher 10 years earlier. *from NCES, 2007retrieved 24 August 2008 from
  29. 31. teacher characteristics* The salaries of public school teachers lost purchasing power in the 1970s due to inflation, but increased at a greater rate than inflation in the 1980s, and since 1990- 9 1 the salaries have generally maintained pace with inflation. The average salary for teachers in 2005- 0 6 was $49,109, about 1 percent higher than in 1995- 9 6, after adjustment for inflation. *from NCES, 2007retrieved 24 August 2008 from

One important technological advance that has come to classrooms following the introduction of computers has been connections to the Internet. The percentage of instructional rooms with access to the Internet increased from 51 percent in 1998 to 94 percent in 2005. Nearly all schools had access to the Internet in 2005. *from NCES, 2007retrieved 24 August 2008 from

  34. 37. How People Learn framework (modified) HPL framework is a conceptual tool for analyzing the qualities of various learning environments. Knowledge-centeredness -- What should be taught? Why is it important? How should this knowledge be organized? Learner-centeredness -- Who is the learner? How do they learn? Why do they want to learn? What kinds of things and people might learners want to be in contact with in order to learn? Community-centeredness -- What kinds of environments enhance learning? [classroom, school, community] How does learning connect to what goes on outside the classroom? Assessment-centeredness -- What is evidence of effective learning? How can students, teachers, parents see if learning is effective? Add'l Social Action -- How do classroom activities connect to social action?
