Study Groups as a Tool for Enhancing Preservice Students' Content Knowledge
Zevenbergen, Robyn
Mathematics Teacher Education and Development, v6 p3-20 2004
This paper explores the use of study groups in a preservice primary mathematics education subject where discipline knowledge (mathematics) is integrated with pedagogical knowledge (mathematics education). In order to address the well-recognized fear and competency levels of preservice teachers in the study of mathematics, study groups were explored as a medium for enhancing learning--both cognitive and affective. Overall, those students who used study groups reported that they were very effective forums for enhancing cognitive and affective learning outcomes in mathematics.
