Abstract

Both as a teacher of mathematics and a new mathematics teacher educator, I have been struck by the importance of verbal metacommunication as a way of responding in discussions about teaching. Having worked on my verbal metacommunication in the classroom for many years as a teacher of mathematics, my attention has now turned to working on verbal metacommunication as a mathematics teacher educator. In this paper, I present an existing framework for some data from discussions with a collaborative group of mathematics teachers that I am working with in a facilitative role. Initial findings suggest the need for the development of a framework more fit for purpose as a facilitator of discussions with groups of teachers.
