Wagner, David; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
Issues of authority abound in education and schooling but have not been interrogated sufficiently. We describe a tool that we have developed to initiate dialogue with teachers about authority in their classrooms--using a diagram to represent authority in their classrooms. Our analysis of the diagrams mathematics teachers created and discussed in…

Eisenmann, Tammy; Even, Ruhama – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
The aim of this study was to examine how teachers enact the same written algebra curriculum materials in different classes. The study addresses this issue by comparing the types of algebraic activity (Kieran, 2004) enacted in two 7th grade classes taught by the same teacher, using the same textbook. Data sources include lesson observations and an…

Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth A. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2007
The author used a discourse analytic framework to examine the "voice" of a middle school mathematics unit. The aim of the analysis was to see whether the authors of the unit achieved the ideological goal (i.e., the intended curriculum) put forth by the NCTM's "Standards" (1991) to shift the locus of authority away from the teacher and the textbook…

Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth A.; Johnson, Kate R.; Otten, Samuel; Cirillo, Michelle – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2013
The mathematics register refers to the forms of meaning and styles of communication characteristic to the mathematics disciplinary community. An important role of teachers is to support students in developing facility with the mathematics register in order to support students' learning. This study focuses on the ways in which a group of secondary…
