Journal Writing: A Model for Mathematics Teacher Education.
Journal writing can be a valuable means of student assessment. If used in a pre-service education class, it can serve as a model of behavior that teacher educators would like to see students adapt for use in their own classrooms. This paper describes various formats that have been tried for the journals, the benefits of each, and the method that works best so far. Samples of student writing demonstrate the effectiveness of journals in convincing students of the advantages of integrating writing into the mathematics curriculum. It also presents a model for pre-service educators to integrate journals in their method courses. (ASK)
