Reformers devised new strategies to effect large-scale change. The advocated conceptions of science and mathematics emphasize integration across subjects and applications of concepts. Teachers played strong roles in the development of innovations and engaged their students to learn in new ways. The burdens of change created struggles between making changes significant and attenuating them to traditional practice. Innovators often underplayed assessment of student achievement, evaluation of the reforms, and issues of equity and inclusion.
