Connecting Research to Teaching
Connecting Research to Teaching: Using a New Synthesis of Reading to Promote a Community of Mathematicians

Janet St. Clair 

May 2007, Volume 100, Issue 9, Page 640

Abstract:
Becoming math readers is the focus of this issue's Connecting Research to Teaching. The author teaches students multiple ways to read a math textbook and engage in productive math discussions with classmates. Connecting Research to Teaching aims to bridge the gap between research and practice by describing current research and then demonstrating its importance and applicability to practicing classroom teachers. This department presents information to help teachers understand students' conceptions or misconceptions of important ideas, consider various approaches to teaching, and offer activities that probe students' understanding. Connecting Research to Teaching  is devoted to articles that bring research insights and findings to an audience of teachers and other mathematics educators (supervisors, professional developers, and teacher educators), and is a regular department of Mathematics Teacher.
