Mathematics Teaching with the Stars
McKinney, Sueanne E.; Bol, Linda; Berube, Clair
Online Yearbook of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, p36-50 2010
The mathematics instructional approaches of effective elementary teachers in urban high- poverty schools were investigated. Approximately 99 urban elementary teachers were administered the Star Teacher Selection Interview; a total of 31 were identified as star teachers. These teachers were then administered the Instructional Practices Assessment to identify their mathematical instructional practices and the degree to which they implemented these practices. The findings indicated that the star teachers are using a variety of instructional approaches that are culturally relevant and aligned with the NCTM's Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. The highest mean ratings were associated with principles and practices related to equity and strong adherence to curriculum standards infused with personal creativity. (Contains 6 tables.)
