Rehearsals in work with in-service mathematics teachers
MetadataShow full item record
An approach that has shown to give pre-service teachers rich opportunities for learning to teach mathematics is through a cycle of enactment and investigation. An important part of the cycle is rehearsal where novices rehearse their plans for enacting particular instructional activity in front of their peer pre-service teachers. The peers and the course instructor take part in the rehearsal as students, and every participant can stop the activity for discussion on different aspects in teaching. We build on the approach developed for pre-service teachers, and work on the adoption and development of the approach for work with in-service teachers in Norway. This paper reports from a pilot that was implemented with a group of in-service teachers. Our research question concerns interactions between in-service teachers and course instructors during the rehearsals and in-service teachers´ opportunities for learning in rehearsals.
