Understanding and Improving Classroom Mathematics Instruction.
Stigler, James W.; Hiebert, James
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n1 p14-21 Sep 1997
The videotape portion of the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), which captured "typical" mathematics instruction in Germany, the United States, and Japan, disclosed information about types of mathematics students encountered, teachers' role in developing concepts and lessons, and expectations for students. The Japanese approach to teacher development contrasts starkly with the U.S. approach, which lacks mechanisms to ensure gradual, continuous improvement. (13 references) (MLH)
