Bulut, Neslihan
EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, v12 n8 p1997-2011 Aug 2016
The purpose of this study was to determine the perceptions of pre-service mathematics teachers related to drama-based instruction. For this purpose, effects of a drama-based mathematics course on senior class pre-service mathematics teachers' knowledge about drama-based instruction and teacher candidates' competencies for developing and implementing drama-based lesson plans were investigated. Participants of the study were 21 senior class pre-service mathematics teachers of a public university in Turkey. Data were collected through an open-ended evaluation form, lesson plans and self-assessment reports. After the 11-week implementation of drama-based activities with teacher candidates, pre-service mathematics teachers succeeded to develop unique lesson plans and implement them with pupils. Lesson plans and self-assessment reports of teacher candidates were analyzed according to descriptive and content analysis. Findings were discussed according to the emergent categories.
