This revised and expanded edition of Becoming a Reflective Mathematics Teacher
continues to provide preservice and inservice mathematics teachers with practical ideas for developing and honing reflective and self-analytical skills needed to advance and improve instruction.
Ideally suited for use with students who are taking a mathematics methods course or who are student teaching, this activity-oriented, research-based text:
*supplies detailed observation instruments
that preservice teachers can use when they observe other teachers;
*offers reflective activities
that provide a structure through which beginning teachers can think about their teaching in an insightful, thorough, and productive manner; and
*includes guidelines and instruments for supervisors
to use when observing, conferencing with, and assessing beginning or student teachers.
All instruments and suggested activities are presented within a highly effective framework for teacher reflection and self-assessment that was developed in the spirit of inquiry-based, learner-centered teaching and is grounded in a cognitive perspective. New in the Second Edition:
The first edition of this popular text focused on middle and secondary level mathematics teaching. This edition has been expanded to encompass elementary mathematics education, including new examples from elementary student teachers. Rubrics have been added for the observation report and the portfolio instruments. The text has been updated throughout.
