Appova, Aina K. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2018
I qualitatively reviewed mathematics education literature to offer explicit classroom-based examples and recommendations on the learning opportunities that can be embedded into mathematics content courses, designed specifically for prospective elementary teachers (ePTs), to help develop their knowledge of students and their mathematical thinking,…

Walkowiak, Temple A.; Pinter, Holly H.; Berry, Robert Q. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2017
We present a reconceptualized framework for opportunity to learn (OTL) in school mathematics that builds on previous conceptualizations of OTL and includes features related to both quantity (i.e., time) and quality. Our framework draws on existing literature and on our own observational research of mathematics teaching practices. Through the…

Garcia-Olp, Michelle; Van Ooyik, Jacklyn; Kitchen, Richard – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2017
In this paper we examine deficit perspectives that prospective elementary school teachers (PTs) noticed their mentor teachers held with regards to classifying students by their achievement or behavior. Using a sociopolitical framework, we explored the following research question: What labels and forms of labeling of students have elementary school…

Jong, Cindy; Jackson, Christa – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2016
Teaching for social justice is a critical pedagogy used to empower students to be social agents in the world they live. This critical pedagogy has extended to mathematics education. Over the last decade, mathematics education researchers have conceptualized what it means to teach mathematics for social justice, but little is known about preservice…

Cho, Hoyun; Osborne, Carolyn; Sanders, Tobie – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2015
Elementary Education pre-service teachers are noted for disliking and even fearing mathematics, so a teaching strategy that increases their enjoyment of mathematics learning must be a powerful one, indeed. When the same strategy can also support problem posing and assess mathematical knowledge and reasoning, providing an occasional alternative to…

Baker, Katherine; Harter, Meghan Evelynne – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2015
This meta-ethnography explores qualitative studies around the Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) framework of mathematics and illustrates how CGI epitomizes differentiation. The meta-ethnographic process is used to synthesize CGI as differentiation, specifically within the elementary mathematics classroom. Thomas P. Carpenter is credited as one…

Fuentes, Sarah Quebec; Bloom, Mark; Peace, Heather – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
Preservice teachers often enter teacher education programs with na├»ve views about mathematics and science as well as the various domains of knowledge needed for effective teaching. A significant body of research has demonstrated that teacher knowledge is multifaceted and consists of both subject matter knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge.…

Stohlmann, Micah – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
Real world mathematical modeling activities can develop needed and valuable 21st century skills. The knowledge and skills to become adept at mathematical modeling need to develop over time and students in the elementary grades should have experiences with mathematical modeling. For this to occur elementary teachers need to have positive…

Takker, Shikha – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
The National Curriculum Framework 2005 envisions a reformed curriculum that connects knowledge and learning to the child's context. While concerns of equity, accessibility, and social transformation have been aimed through education, the crucial link of "teacher"--instrumental in realizing these aims--seems missing. This study explores…

Gujarati, Joan – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
This article examines three early career elementary teachers' orientations toward standards-based mathematics curriculum implementation in New York City public schools. It is important to have a greater understanding of teachers who are responsible for enacting standards-based curriculum in authentic teaching situations in order to learn more…
