Choppin, Jeffrey; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2012
This article explores how situating the linguistic move of revoicing within broader structures helps to explain why researchers and practitioners attribute a variety of forms and functions to revoicing, and shows how revoicing may be described as consisting of and situated within a broader set of discourse structures that represent a continuum…

Cavanna, Jillian M.; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth; Seah, Wee Tiong – Research in Mathematics Education, 2015
This article provides an exploratory case study that examines what one teacher indicated as unexpected as she worked to become more purposeful about her classroom discourse practices. We found that she highlighted three areas as being unexpected: (1) aspects of lesson enactment; (2) characteristics of student learning and (3) her own…

Eisenmann, Petr; Novotná, Jarmila; Pribyl, Jirí; Brehovský, Jirí – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2015
The article reports the results of a longitudinal research study conducted in three mathematics classes in Czech schools with 62 pupils aged 12-18 years. The pupils were exposed to the use of selected heuristic strategies in mathematical problem solving for a period of 16 months. This was done through solving problems where the solution was the…

Cirillo, Michelle; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth – School Science and Mathematics, 2011
Although popular media often provides negative images of mathematicians, we contend that mathematics classroom practices can also contribute to students' images of mathematicians. In this study, we examined eight mathematics teachers' framings of mathematicians in their classrooms. Here, we analyze classroom observations to explore some of the…

Thanheiser, Eva; Ellis, Amy; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2012
Three "JRME" authors describe the process of publishing their research in "JRME". All 3 authors published parts of their dissertation in "JRME" and are sharing their stories to help (new) researchers in mathematics education better understand the process and to offer (experienced) researchers in mathematics education a tool that can be used to…

Eisenmann, Linda – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2007
This paper explores ways in which gendered approaches have limited women's experience of higher education. Using a historical lens with primary examples from the United States and Britain, it demonstrates how beliefs about women over time led to three expectations about their educational participation: initially, that women were not interested in…

Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth A.; Otten, Samuel – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2011
This article offers a particular analytic method from systemic functional linguistics, "thematic analysis," which reveals the mathematical meaning potentials construed in discourse. Addressing concerns that discourse analysis is too often content-free, thematic analysis provides a way to represent semantic structures of mathematical content,…

Aguirre, Julia; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth; Celedón-Pattichis, Sylvia; Civil, Marta; Wilkerson, Trena; Stephan, Michelle; Pape, Stephen; Clements, Douglas H. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017
In this commentary, the authors explore how mathematics education research and the decisions mathematics education researchers (MERs) make to include (or not) an equity lens are not just choices; rather, they are political acts. MERs must take a hard look at themselves as human beings shaped by the political landscape of their different histories…

Wagner, David; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2009
With our conceptualization of Harre and van Langenhove's (1999) positioning theory, we draw attention to immanent experience and read transcendent discursive practices through the moment of interaction. We use a series of spatial images as metaphors to analyze the way positioning is conceptualized in current mathematics education literature and…

Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth A.; Wagner, David; Johnson, Kate R.; Suh, Heejoo; Figueras, Hanna – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2015
We develop theory within the field of mathematics education based on analysis of an imported theory--positioning theory--and the way it is used in the field. After summarizing positioning theory, we identify some conceptual fuzziness, particularly in core terms "positioning" and "storyline." We offer Lemke's idea of timescales…

Steele, Michael D.; Johnson, Kate R.; Otten, Samuel; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth A.; Carver, Cynthia L. – Journal of Research on Leadership Education, 2015
Instructional leadership is integral to improving mathematics teaching in secondary schools. However, administrators often lack sufficient content knowledge in mathematics to be effective in this role. This study examined the impact of professional development focused on developing leadership content knowledge in algebra. Data included written…

Jansen, Amanda; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth; Smith, John P., III – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2012
Transitions from middle school to high school mathematics programs can be problematic for students due to potential differences between instructional approaches and curriculum materials. Given the minimal research on how students experience such differences, we report on the experiences of two students as they moved out of an integrated,…

Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth; Wagner, David; Cortes, Viviana – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2010
In this article, we introduce the lexical bundle, defined by corpus linguists as a group of three or more words that frequently recur together, in a single group, in a particular register (Biber, Johansson, Leech, Conrad, & Finegan, 2006; Cortes, "English for Specific Purposes" 23:397-423, 2004). Attention to lexical bundles helps to explore…

Gomes, Thayse Natacha; dos Santos, Fernanda K.; Zhu, Weimo; Eisenmann, Joey; Maia, José A. R. – Journal of School Health, 2014
Background: Children spend most of their awake time at school, and it is important to identify individual and school-level correlates of their physical activity (PA) levels. This study aimed to identify the between-school variability in Portuguese children PA and to investigate student and school PA correlates using multilevel modeling. Methods:…
