A Model of the Influence of Teacher Thinking and Contexts on Teacher Change as Conceptual Change in Mathematics Education Reform.
This paper presents a conceptual model that casts teachers' thinking and their practice at the heart of mathematics education reform. Data were collected about each of the interrelated parts of the conceptual model and concerned four teachers from two high schools and their principals. The four teachers' case stories with descriptions of a class that the researcher observed extensively for each teacher are described. Findings indicate that the teachers in this study had a strong sense of autonomy about their work--they were teaching in unique ways that they each considered to be the best for their students.
