Designing Opportunities for Prospective Teachers to Facilitate Mathematics Discussions in Classrooms
Hunter, Roberta; Anthony, Glenda
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) (35th, Singapore, Jul 2-6, 2012)
How prospective teachers can best be prepared to teach effectively in mathematics classrooms is a topic of current concern. In this paper, we describe our exploration of ways in which prospective teachers were supported to translate what they learnt in mathematics methods classes into pedagogical practice. We illustrate how the use of discourse routines, enacted in iterative cycles of guided rehearsals, disrupted previous beliefs about teaching and learning mathematics and led to them more confidently respond in pedagogically appropriate ways.
