Shelton, Ryann N.; Kerschen, Keith; Wilkerson, Trena L. – School Science and Mathematics, 2021
Because of their brief nature, vignettes are a strategic way to highlight or explore complex instructional practices. Using a qualitative approach, we examined how the use of vignettes in a Vignette Activity Sequence contributed to secondary mathematics preservice teachers' understanding of the Mathematical Practices and the Mathematics Teaching…

Amirshokoohi, Aidin; Wisniewski, Daniel P. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018
The aim of this article is to discuss key elements of a constructivist-based elementary mathematics methods course and the role of each component in enhancing elementary school teacher candidates' mathematical understanding, interest in, and confidence with learning and teaching mathematics while decreasing their math-related anxiety and fear. The…

Harkness, Shelly Sheats; Brass, Amy – International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2017
Mathematics methods texts are important resources for supporting preservice teachers' learning. Methods instructors routinely assign readings from texts. Yet, anecdotally and also based on reading compliance literature, many students report that they do not read assigned readings. Within this paper we briefly describe the findings from a survey of…

Brass, Amber; Harkness, Shelly Sheats – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2016
We investigated how pre-service and first-year teachers engaged with the pedagogy textbooks from their mathematics methods courses. Sixteen participants--seven pre-service teachers and nine first-year teachers--were interviewed about their interactions with mathematics methods texts and their perceptions about the texts. This paper focuses on…

Dunleavy, Teresa K.; Marzocchi, Alison S.; Gholson, Maisie L. – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2021
In this paper, teacher educators located at three different universities across the United States share findings emerging from our collaboration around a suite of three activities that engage our teacher candidates (TCs) around their identities as future mathematics teachers. In particular, our TCs engaged in a suite of identity-based activities…

Mistretta, Regina M. – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2020
The importance of practical learning environments for developing preservice teachers' (PSTs') dispositions and skills for teaching mathematics is underscored in a growing body of literature. Hence, teacher preparation programs often include methods courses embedded within K-12 schools. Utilized to a lesser extent; however, are campus-based…

Stickles, Paula R. – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2015
Often secondary mathematics methods courses include classroom peer teaching, but many pre-service teachers find it challenging to teach their classmate peers as there are no discipline issues and little mathematical discourse as the "students" know the content. We will share a recent change in our methods course where pre-service…

Otten, Samuel; Yee, Sean P.; Taylor, Megan W. – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2015
Mathematics teacher education has been criticized, both internally and externally, for failing to identify shared practices and goals within teacher preparation programs. Work has begun to address this criticism at the elementary level but less exists at the secondary level. This paper reports on a national survey with responses from 116 secondary…

Gresham, Gina; Burleigh, Caroline – Teaching Education, 2019
Early childhood preservice teachers participated in a qualitative multiple case study to explore and examine the effectiveness of reform-based constructivist methods used in a mathematics methods course to change their mathematics anxiety, mathematics self-efficacy, and mathematics teachers' efficacy beliefs. Findings indicated that instructor's…

Harkness, Shelly Sheats; Brass, Amy – The Mathematics Educator, 2017
Mathematics methods textbooks/texts are important components of many courses for preservice teachers. Researchers should explore how these texts are selected and used. Within this paper we report the findings of a survey administered electronically to 132 members of the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) in order to answer the…

Gujarati, Joan – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2019
This article examines how the Child Mathematics Inquiry Portfolio (CMIP), a semester-long field experience project attached to an elementary mathematics methods course, can impact preservice teachers' understanding about teaching and learning mathematics and set them on more positive mathematics teaching journeys as they prepare to enter the…

Jao, Limin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
For pre-service teachers (PSTs) who have been exposed to traditional approaches, teacher education courses can be a revelatory experience in their development as educators. This study explores if Canadian upper elementary/lower secondary (grades 4-10) PSTs change their beliefs about mathematics teaching as a result of taking a mathematics methods…

Marin, Katherine Ariemma – Studying Teacher Education, 2014
This article details the self-study of a beginning teacher educator in her first experience in teaching a mathematics methods course. The transition from teacher to teacher educator is explored through the experience of a course focused on inquiry. Inquiry is embedded within the course from two perspectives: mathematical inquiry and teaching as…

Yurekli, Bilge; Isiksal-Bostan, Mine; Çakiroglu, Erdinç – Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, 2020
To transform the knowledge and skills they develop through teacher education programmes into successful instructional practices, preservice teachers should strongly believe in their capabilities. This qualitative case study, to fill a gap in the literature, provides a theoretically sound description of how a mathematics teaching methods course…

King, Barbara; Bartman, Jennifer; Gil, Indira – Teacher Educator, 2020
The purpose of the mathematics methods course where this study took place was to support pre-service teachers (PSTs) as their thinking about instruction transitioned from a traditional, teacher-centered approach to a more problem-based, student-centered approach, and to guide them as they developed strategies for teaching through problem solving.…
