Planning for Mathematics Instruction: A Model of Experienced Teachers' Planning Processes in the Context of a Reform Mathematics Curriculum
Superfine, Alison Castro
Mathematics Educator, v18 n2 p11-22 2008
Planning is an important phase of teaching, during which teachers make decisions about various aspects of instruction that ultimately shape students' opportunities to learn. Prior research on teacher planning, however, fails to adequately describe experienced teachers' planning decisions, and is unclear about the extent to which teachers use curriculum materials to inform their decisions. Using data from 6th grade mathematics teachers' use of curriculum materials, this study presents a discipline-specific model of experienced mathematics teachers' planning. The proposed model provides a lens for understanding the nature of teachers' planning decisions, and the conditions under which such decisions change over time. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
