Ritual and Improvisation: Ways of Researching, Ways of Being in Mathematics Classrooms
McCloskey, Andrea; Tanner, Samuel
For the Learning of Mathematics, v39 n2 p37-41 2019
This paper seeks to integrate a scholarship of "ritual" with a scholarship of "improvisation" and relate the intersection thereof with mathematics teaching and learning and with mathematics education research. Drawing on their experiences as classroom teachers, as practicing improvisers, and as current education researchers, the authors draw from scholarship about "ritual," "improvisation," and related concepts from sociocultural and mathematics education literature. They propose ways that mathematics teachers and mathematics education researchers might find "ritual" and "improvisation" to be illuminating concepts for their work.
