Working with Learners' Mathematical Thinking: Towards a Language of Description for Changing Pedagogy
Brodie, Karin
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v27 n1 p174-186 Jan 2011
This paper examines teachers' classroom talk as teachers respond to, interact with and take forward learners' contributions. Teachers' responses to learner contributions provide a useful lens in understanding teachers' hybrid practices as they take up aspects of reform practice. A set of codes for teacher moves is developed to describe teacher responses, which build on previous work in describing classroom talk and provide the beginnings of an elaborated language of description for changes in teaching practice. The codes illuminate the similarities and differences across four secondary school mathematics teachers as they shift their practices to take account of learners' thinking. (Contains 6 tables.)
