Teaching Strategies: Papers from a Research Workshop.
Cooney, Thomas J., Ed.; Bradbard, David A., Ed.
Nine papers presented at a research conference on strategies for teaching mathematics are presented in this volume. The first paper provides an overview of research on teaching strategies, defining a perspective on the subsequent papers. The second paper reviews the major strategies from a historical perspective. The third paper discusses the role of a theory in the development of teaching strategies. Four papers are concerned with research problems related to teaching strategies. The first of these deals with studies of efficacy of different strategies; the second concerns a comparison of teaching strategies which differed in the amount of information being taught and the amount of pupil-teacher interaction. More general research papers concern problems of designing studies of teaching strategies and a context for studying teaching strategies from a delivery-systems approach. The eighth paper discusses materials for teacher training. The final paper provides an integrative summary of research on teaching strategies. (SD)
