Teacher and Students: Setting up the Transference
De Carvalho, Ana; Cabral, Tania
For the Learning of Mathematics, v23 n2 p11-14 2003
Ana De Carvalho and Tania Cabral write here that they think the learning process rests heavily on the ability of speech, so they recommend placing students more and more in the position of speaking. Not happy with prompt, correct answers, they confront their students with further related questions trying to establish if they have fairly consistent knowledge. They rely on this strategy to judge whether right answers truly mean student understanding. They then state how the transference process would take place in their classroom. Transference allows for confident communication from the student to the teacher, so that the student will feel capable of dealing with the mathematical objects without fear of making mistakes, or speaking without searching for ideal models.
