Gerstenschlager, Natasha; Barlow, Angela T.; Lischka, Alyson; Watson, Lucy; Strayer, Jeremy; Stephens, D. Christopher; Hartland, Kristin S.; Willingham, James C. – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2021
Research has shown that the ways in which teachers engage in professional development activities vary widely. identified three levels of teacher appropriation within professional development, with their inquiry stance indicative of teachers engaging in self-sustaining practices. In our project, we modified the demonstration lesson format so that…

Mangram, Charmaine; Sun, Kathy Liu – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2021
The pervasiveness of digital technology creates an imperative for mathematics teacher educators to prepare preservice teachers (PSTs) to select technology to support students' mathematical development. We report on research conducted on an assignment created for and implemented in secondary mathematics methods courses requiring PSTs to select and…

Creager, Mark A.; Snider, Rachel B.; Parrish, Christopher W. – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2021
Cognitively demanding tasks provide important opportunities for students to develop an understanding of mathematics; however, they are challenging to launch and implement. The authors designed a secondary methods unit on launching tasks. Participants in the study were enrolled in five different methods courses. Using a noticing framework, findings…

Staples, Megan; Cavanna, Jillian – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2021
To support teachers in implementing ambitious reform efforts, professional developers and teacher educators need to know more about teachers' thinking about argumentation. Specifically, there is a need to understand more about teachers' views and evaluations of "students'" mathematical arguments as they play out "in practice."…

Bell, Tony; Lolkus, Michael; Newton, Jill; Willey, Craig – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2021
The preparation of mathematics teacher educators (MTEs) varies widely, with little guidance regarding the essential skills and knowledge necessary to tackle the field's looming challenges. Equitable access to, and engagement with, mathematics has surfaced as an elusive goal of mathematics education organizations. MTEs, therefore, ought to identify…

Bartell, Tonya; Koestler, Courtney; Foote, Mary Q. – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2021
The Access, Allies, and Agency in Mathematical Systems project team designed a professional development for mathematics teachers positioning equity at the systemic level and activities aimed at supporting mathematics teachers in considering the influence of privilege and oppression on mathematics teaching and learning (Scroggins, 2017). Here, we…

Webel, Corey; Yeo, Sheunghyun – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2021
In this article, we share results from a field experience model in which junior-year methods classes were held in an elementary school and preservice teachers (PSTs) worked with a single student (a "Math Buddy") on mathematics for 30 minutes per day. We focus on the development of PSTs' skills for exploring children's thinking and the…

Kalinec-Craig, Crystal; Bonner, Emily P.; Kelley, Traci – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2021
This article describes an innovation in an elementary mathematics education course called SEE Math (Support and Enrichment Experiences in Mathematics), which aims to support teacher candidates (TCs) as they learn to teach mathematics through problem solving while promoting equity during multiple experiences with a child. During this 8-week…

Billings, Esther M. H.; Swartz, Barbara A. – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2021
In this article, the authors describe the Show-Me Narrative (SMN) assignment and its implementation in mathematics for elementary teacher courses taken early in elementary preservice teachers' (PSTs') teacher professional coursework. The authors present evidence of ways the SMN supports PSTs' understanding and enactment of the core teaching…

Young, Erica Slate; Dyess, Sarah Roller – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2021
Prospective and practicing elementary teachers have historically demonstrated anxiety about mathematics, which can affect their mathematics teaching and their students' math anxiety. Yet, developing productive dispositions prior to teacher preparation programs is rarely addressed in the research. We propose mindset messaging in mathematics courses…

Suh, Jennifer M.; Birkhead, Sara; Frank, Toya; Baker, Courtney; Galanti, Terrie; Seshaiyer, Padmanabhan – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2021
This article details the design and implementation of a professional development model called Learning Trajectory-Based Lesson Study focused on issues of equity, identity, and agency. We developed the Vertical Articulation to Unpack the Learning Trajectory (VAULT) tool to orient teachers' instructional planning toward an asset-based view of…

Campbell, Matthew P.; Baldinger, Erin E.; Graif, Foster – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2020
Approximations of practice provide opportunities for teacher candidates (TCs) to engage in the work of teaching in situations of reduced complexity. A problem of practice for teacher educators relates to how to represent student voice in approximations to engage TCs with interactive practices in meaningful ways. In this article, we share an…

Özgün-Koca, S. Asli; Lewis, Jennifer M.; Edwards, Thomas – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2020
Mathematical knowledge for teaching is a complex web of knowledge domains. In this article, we share findings from an 18-month professional development project that aimed to improve middle school mathematics teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT) of proportional reasoning by focusing on the critical analysis of mathematical tasks and…
