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.; 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…

Suh, Heejoo; Musselman, Alexandria Theakston; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth; Steele, Michael D. – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2013
In this paper, we share our dilemma of disrupting teachers' deficit frames of students. The data comes from a professional development program with nine secondary mathematics teachers. In particular, we attended to when teachers talk about "low-level" students. Drawing on Harré and van Langenhove's (1999) idea of positioning, we examined…

Remillard, Janine T., Ed.; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth A., Ed.; Lloyd, Gwendolyn M., Ed. – Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2011
This book compiles and synthesizes existing research on teachers' use of mathematics curriculum materials and the impact of curriculum materials on teaching and teachers, with a particular emphasis on--but not restricted to--those materials developed in the 1990s in response to the NCTM's Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. Despite…

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…

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…

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…

Switzer, J. Matt – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2013
Patterns are commonly used in middle years mathematics classrooms to teach students about functions and modelling with tables, graphs, and equations. Grade 6 students are expected to, "continue and create sequences involving whole numbers, fractions and decimals," and "describe the rule used to create the sequence." (Australian…

Eisenmann, Linda – Johns Hopkins University Press, 2006
This history explores the nature of postwar advocacy for women's higher education, acknowledging its unique relationship to the expectations of the era and recognizing its particular type of adaptive activism. Linda Eisenmann illuminates the impact of this advocacy in the postwar era, identifying a link between women's activism during World War II…

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:…

Cirillo, Michelle; Bruna, Katherine Richardson; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth – Multicultural Perspectives, 2010
In this article, we describe aspects of mathematical language that could be problematic to English-language learners, provide recommendations for teaching English-language learners, and suggest activities intended to foster language development in mathematics. (Contains 1 figure.)

Wagner, David; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2008
Responding to concerns raised by grade 11 mathematics students, we examined a broad set of mathematics classroom transcripts from multiple teachers to examine how the word "just" was and could be used to suppress and invite dialogue. We used corpus linguistics tools to process and quantify the large body of text, not to describe the nature of the…

Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth; Drake, Corey; Cirillo, Michelle – Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, 2009
This article examines a collaborative study group's discussions about "revoicing," an idea from linguistics that has been identified as an important discourse strategy in the teaching of mathematics as well as other content areas. This group, made up of eight middle grades (grades 6-10) mathematics teacher-researchers (TRs), one university…

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…
