The Development of Selected Initiating Activities in the Teaching of Mathematics.
Runion, Garth Eugene
This thesis is concerned with the development and appraisal of video-tape clips used in training pre-service teachers in mathematics. The video-tapes (on file in the television studio of the College of Education at the University of Illinois in Urbana) show high school mathematics teachers in real classroom situations illustrating seven different ways that lessons might be begun: by stating goals, outlining, using an analogue, using historical material, reviewing subordinate information, giving reasons, or presenting a problematical situation. Detailed descriptions, a rationale, and written examples of each of the initiating activities are given. Transcripts of each of the 20 video-tape clips, each with a summary which highlights the initiating activities being attempted and with discussion questions related to the clip, are included. Information as to how the video-tapes were used in a series of training sessions for 12 student teachers in mathematics, and results of an evaluation by the students of the way the tapes were used, are reported.
