Assessing Teacher Change in Facilitating Mathematizing in Urban Middle Schools: Results of an Effective Professional Development Program
Tarlow, Lynn D.
Current Issues in Middle Level Education, v19 n2 p9-12 2014
This study documents the change in teaching practices of a group of mathematics teachers in urban middle schools as they participated in a program of professional development to promote standards-based learning environments. The teachers made a shift in their classroom practice from a traditional, didactic lecture approach towards a role of facilitating conditions suitable for students' explorations and mathematizing. The stages of development the teachers experienced are described with regard to three critical domains: Pedagogy, Use of Mathematical Tasks, and Focus on Mathematics.
