From Intended Curriculum to Written Curriculum: Examining the "Voice" of a Mathematics Textbook
Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth A.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v38 n4 p344-369 Jul 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 and toward student mathematical reasoning and justification. (Contains 3 tables, 6 figures and 18 footnotes.)
