Reflective Field Experiences for Success in Teaching Elementary Mathematics
Robards, Shirley N.
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v6 n3 p45-48 May-Jun 2009
In this paper, the author discusses the major components of a junior level pedagogy course for elementary education majors learning to teach mathematics. The course reviews content and knowledge of the teacher candidates and introduces methods and materials for teaching elementary mathematics using the Standards or benchmarks from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). These NCTM Standards are current benchmarks from 1989, 1991, and 1995 and are built on the premise that all students can learn mathematics and that teachers play an important role of helping children and youth understand. (Contains 8 endnotes.)
