Despite the prevalence of mathematics curriculum materials in elementary classrooms, most current mathematics methods texts provide little or no support for preservice teachers (PSTs) who are learning to use curriculum materials. To meet this need, the authors designed and studied several modules intended to provide PSTs with opportunities to learn about and from the use of curriculum materials. Their results examine the nature of PSTs’ developing content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge, evidenced through their interactions with and reflections on Standards-based curriculum materials.
