Distinguishing Models of Professional Development: The Case of an Adaptive Model's Impact on Teachers' Knowledge, Instruction, and Student Achievement
Journal of Teacher Education Vol. 66, No. 1 (2015) pp. 51–67
We posit that professional development (PD) models fall on a continuum from highly adaptive to highly specified, and that these constructs provide a productive way to characterize and distinguish among models. The study reported here examines the...
Transforming Middle School Geometry: Designing Professional Development Materials that Support the Teaching and Learning of Similarity
Middle Grades Research Journal Vol. 5, No. 4 (2010) pp. 199–211
Although there are increasing numbers of professional development (PD) materials intended to foster teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching within the topics of number and algebra, little attention has been given to geometry. In this article...
Journal of Staff Development Vol. 35, No. 6 (December 2014) pp. 48–52
The rapidly changing world and the increasingly complex demands placed on schools because of that change has led to an increasing awareness that the school principal alone cannot provide all of the leadership necessary for school development. More...
The Eyes of the Beholder: Understanding the Turn-Taking System in Quasi-Synchronous Computer-Mediated Communication
Research on Language and Social Interaction Vol. 32, No. 4 (1999) pp. 337–67
Compares the turn-taking systems in computer-mediated communication (CMC) and oral conversation. The study is based on quasisynchronous CMC conversations between students in a college classroom.(Author/VWL)
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 18, No. 1 (March 2018) pp. 29–49
In this article the authors described their exploration of a particular design element they labeled “video in the middle.” As part of the video in the middle design, the viewing of carefully selected video clips from teachers’ classrooms is...
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies Vol. 24, No. 2 (February 2008) pp. 417–436
This article explores the use of classroom video as a tool for fostering productive discussions about teaching and learning. The setting for our research is a 2-year mathematics professional development program, based on the Problem-Solving Cycle...
Integrating qualitative and quantitative approaches to the analysis of video data on classroom teaching
International Journal of Educational Research Vol. 31, No. 8 (1999) pp. 717–724
Video data provide a means of integrating quantitative and qualitative approaches to the study of classroom teaching. This chapter begins by discussing the usefulness of integrating quantitative and qualitative analyses, and then describes how large-...
Impacting Teachers' Understanding of Geometric Similarity: Results from Field Testing of the Learning and Teaching Geometry Professional Development Materials
Professional Development in Education Vol. 40, No. 4 (2014) pp. 627–653
The main goal of the Learning and Teaching Geometry project is to build professional development materials that provide opportunities for teachers to learn about mathematical similarity through the use of videocases, in which specific and...
