Ly, Rinna K.; Malone, John A.
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
This paper describes the development of an instrument to assess teachers' views on their geometry instruction and their classroom learning environments in six government high schools in southwest Sydney. The sample consisted of 18 Years 9/10 ESL teachers from participating schools. The study involved completion of a survey form using a modified and expanded "What Is Happening In this Class (WIHIC)" questionnaire for teachers along with participant interviews. The findings indicated that there were positive associations between the learning environment and teachers' views on geometry instruction and the achievement of their classroom goals. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.) [For the complete proceedings, "Shaping the Future of Mathematics Education.
