Through in-depth interviews with a group of accomplished teachers of color who emphasized the need for their students to access the "culture of power" as a means to work toward racial justice, I attempt to represent the purposefulness of their practice within the context of what one participant termed the "millennium form of slavery." I argue that…

Sherin, Miriam Gamoran; Linsenmeier, Katherine A.; van Es, Elizabeth A. – Journal of Teacher Education, 2009
This study explores the use of video clips from teachers' own classrooms as a resource for investigating student mathematical thinking. Three dimensions for characterizing video clips of student mathematical thinking are introduced: the extent to which a clip provides "windows" into student thinking, the "depth" of thinking…
