One teacher’s awareness in a mathematics classroom: towards an observation methodology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)

Abstract

Starting from the position that it is desirable for students of mathematics
to develop awareness of mathematics and acknowledging that it is not
possible for a teacher to access students’ awareness directly, attention
shifts to the ways in which teachers use their pedagogical and subject
knowledge to educate awareness. Drawing on in-class observation, review
of video-record and teacher interview, I report an attempt to mark
instances of teacher awareness of student awareness and to trace
associated decision-making relating to student attention within a
mathematics lesson. I consider differences in what is noticed by observer
and teacher and how this might relate to teachers’ on-going development.
