The Role of Curricular Reasoning in Middle Grades Mathematics Teachers’ Instructional Practice

Home / Presentation / The Role of Curricular Reasoning in Middle Grades Mathematics Teachers’ Instructional Practice
Abstract/Description:

We present six aspects of curricular reasoning and illustrate the interactions among teachers, students, mathematics, and curriculum materials using data from Grade 8 teachers as they planned and enacted geometric transformation lessons. We discuss differences across teachers with varying backgrounds and consider how teachers’ curricular reasoning can influence students’ opportunity to learn mathematics.
