Providing Meaningful Fieldwork for Preservice Mathematics Teachers: A College-School Collaboration

Frances Curcio, Alice Artzt, Merna Porter 

May 2005, Volume 98, Issue 9, Page 604

Abstract:
The collaboration between an eighth grade teacher and two college professors in the design and implementation of in vivo field experiences that help preservice secondary school mathematics teachers connect theories of learning with instructional practice. Through a student-centered approach to instruction, this course serves as a model for these students to use while they reflect on teaching and learning. Through observations and discussions, pre-service teachers can focus on meaningful fieldwork that bridges theory and practice.
