Voyaging from Theory to Practice in Teaching and Learning: A View from Hawaii
Dougherty, Barbara J.; Zilliox, Joseph
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Paper presented at the 27th International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education Conference Held Jointly with the 25th PME-NA Conference (Honolulu, HI, Jul 13-18, 2003), v1 p17-32
This document contains two contributions: "Voyaging from Theory to Practice in Teaching: Measure Up" (Barbara J. Dougherty) and "Voyaging from Theory to Practice in Learning: Teacher Professional Development" (Joseph Zilliox). Hawaii is a place of diverse cultures, ethnicities, and traditions representing a myriad of global regions. Education within such a setting creates a unique opportunity and challenge to create tasks and processes by which all students can learn. The two papers presented in this plenary illustrate how theory and practice in the Hawaii setting build on each other, one focusing on teaching and the other focusing on learning. The theories surrounding the two papers may be slightly different to accommodate the foci of the papers. However, both papers use the theories and experiences from practice to address the perspectives of the classroom and the needs of the key stakeholders--teachers and students. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.) [For complete proceedings, see ED500857.]
