Hoang, Thienhuong
International Electronic Journal for Leadership in Learning, v12 n3 2008
The purpose of this study is to illuminate the reciprocal relation between teacher leaders' perception and practice to subject matter. The researcher conducted interviews and observations of 30 teachers from 8 urban elementary schools. The data and results evidently identify those teachers' views of subject matter both shaped and were shaped by their teaching strategies. Teachers' strategies for improving math instruction focused on external supports such as professional training in mathematics and building skills through sequenced instruction and curriculum. In improving literacy instruction, teachers emphasized the school community as the locus for development of literacy programs and materials that applied to a variety of academic subjects.
