Are There Any Places That Students Use Their Heads? Principles of High-Quality Japanese Mathematics Instruction

Douglas L. Corey, Blake E. Peterson, Benjamin Merrill Lewis and Jared Bukarau 

November 2010, Volume 41, Issue 5, Page 438

Abstract:
Previous research gives evidence that Japanese mathematics teachers “may have a more detailed and widely shared theory about how to teach effectively” when compared to their U.S. counterparts (Jacobs & Morita, 2002). This study explores the conceptions and cultural scripts of a group of Japanese mathematics teachers by analyzing the conversations between cooperating teachers and student teachers.
