Changing Actions vs. Changing Beliefs: What Is the Goal of Mathematics Teacher Education?
Mewborn, Denise S.
This study focuses on one preservice mathematics teacher in her first mathematics methods course who constituted a special section of the course. This was field-based with most of the course spent in a fourth grade classroom observing mathematics instruction, conducting task-based interviews with individual children, and teaching small groups. It was concluded that the teacher was able to change her mathematics teaching behavior to be more consistent with her beliefs about children, teaching, and learning. (ASK)
