Kasmer, Lisa Anne; Billings, Esther
Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, v29 n2 p1-17 Fall 2017
This study investigated how a study abroad experience teaching mathematics in Tanzania, Africa impacted a group of secondary education pre-service teachers (PSTs) from the United States. In particular we discuss their ability to facilitate the learning of students in multilingual mathematics classrooms while personally developing intercultural competence. We examined three areas: the PSTs' attitudes, knowledge and comprehension, and skills in an effort to understand their ability to teach in multilingual classrooms.
