One Teacher's Struggle To Balance Students' Needs for Challenge and Success.
Smith, Margaret Schwan
This study investigated a dilemma faced by an experienced teacher during the early stages of participating in a mathematics instructional reform project, Quantitative Understanding Amplifying Student Achievement and Reasoning (QUASAR). The dilemma arose as the teacher's past practices came into conflict with new forms of instruction. Factors that assisted the teacher in dealing with the dilemma and arriving at a satisfactory resolution included: (1) encouraging teacher reflection on practice, (2) providing a nonthreatening forum for discussing reflections, and (3) providing ongoing support during implementation.
