Beginning of a Teaching Career: What We Know About Preservice Secondary Mathematics Teachers’ Curricular Reasoning

Home / Presentation / Beginning of a Teaching Career: What We Know About Preservice Secondary Mathematics Teachers’ Curricular Reasoning
Abstract/Description:

Researchers have found that a teacher’s decisions affect opportunities students have to learn (Stein, Remillard, & Smith, 2007). Teachers make mathematical decisions as they plan, develop and enact lessons for students, and the reasoning about these decisions is referred to as curricular reasoning (Roth McDuffie & Mather, 2009). Empirical data on preservice teachers’ curricular reasoning will be presented. Data on how these preservice teachers' goals, resources, and orientations influenced their curricular reasoning will also be presented. Implications for educating and training new teachers will be discussed.
