Mathematics Teaching: Moving from Telling to Listening.
Davis, Brent A.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v9 n3 p267-83 Spr 1994
Compares teacher/student relationships in a traditional teacher-controlled seventh-grade math classroom with those in another classroom divided into groups working with "fraction kits" while the teacher wanders about. The difference is the second teacher's capacity for listening amid creative chaos. A mechanistic, management-oriented classroom environment profoundly constrains listening and student/teacher relationships. (Contains 28 references.) (MLH)
