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


In this paper, we report on our analysis of four transcripts of teacher meetings that took place over the academic year 2011-12. These meetings took place in the context of a project looking into tackling underachievement in primary mathematics through a focus on creativity. We bring the idea of growth indicators (Jacobs, Lamb and Philipp 2010) within the framework of noticing (Mason 2002) in order to analyse shifts in teacher discourse. There is evidence of growth but we conclude by discussing the complexity of teacher change and problems with any set of indicators.
