Ross, John A.; McKeiver, Sharon; Hogaboam-Gray, Anne – Canadian Journal of Education, 1997
Four grade-9 mathematics teachers in Canada were studied over one year as they implemented destreaming (detracking), which was an externally induced reform in their school system. Implementation of the destreaming had an immediate negative effect on teacher expectations of their own efficacy, but their beliefs rebounded over the year. (SLD)

Charambous, Charalambos; Philippou, George Kyriakides, Leonidas – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004
Teachers' concerns and efficacy beliefs (EB) are important for the success of any reform. Previous research has shown that teachers? concerns develop in three levels: self, task and impact, respectively. Thus, this study examines the concerns and EB of primary teachers with respect to a reform concerning the use of Schema Theory in teaching…

Borgerding, Lisa A.; Caniglia, Joanne – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
Previous literature suggests that service learning may offer new opportunities to support the development of preservice science and math teachers, but few studies examine service learning beyond isolated teaching events. In this qualitative study, we attempt to improve upon this literature by following Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) students'…

Laveault, Dany; Leblanc, Raymond; Leroux, Janice – 1999
This paper examines how self-evaluation strategies contribute to helping students take control over their own learning processes. In addition to examining the role of self-evaluation when a student takes on and exercises control over an activity in the classroom, this paper takes into account homework assignments and the role of parents.
