Abstract

In this poster session we will show the stages of progression, the significant transformations, and the way in which the Science Mathematics Association of Rural Teachers (SMART) Community of Practice (COP) was started, how it grew and why it now thrives. As a community begins the key domain issue it faces is defining the scope of the domain in a way that elicits the heartfelt interest of members and aligns with the organization as a whole. The key community issue of finding people who share this common interest and trying to show them what thing could be like by sharing the knowledge. In addition it is important to convince the participants that the potential for the discovery of new and better ways to approach a rural educational setting.
