Teacher education is an evolving field with multiple pathways towards teacher certification. Due to an increasing emphasis on the benefits of field-based learning, teachers can now take alternative certification pathways to become teachers. The Handbook of Research on Field-Based Teacher Education is a pivotal reference source that combines field-based components with traditional programs, creating clinical experiences and “on-the-job” learning opportunities to further enrich teacher education. While highlighting topics such as certification design, preparation programs, and residency models, this publication explores theories of teaching and learning through collaborative efforts in pre-Kindergarten through grade 12 settings. This book is ideally designed for teacher education practitioners and researchers invested in the policies and practices of educational design.
With the ever-changing climate of education around the globe, it is essential that educators stay abreast of the most updated teaching methods and applications. To do this, fostering teacher education programs that include innovative practices and initiatives within the field is imperative. The Handbook of Research on Teacher Education and Professional Development investigates current initiatives and approaches in educational programs. Focusing on research studies and theoretical concepts on innovative projects related to teacher education and professional development programs, this book is a pivotal reference source for academics, professionals, students, practitioners, and researchers.

The same five practices teachers know and love for planning and managing powerful conversations in mathematics classrooms, updated with current research and new insights on anticipating, lesson planning, and lessons learned from teachers, coaches, and school leaders. This framework for orchestrating mathematically productive discussions is rooted in student thinking to launch meaningful discussions in which important mathematical ideas are brought to the surface, contradictions are exposed, and understandings are developed or consolidated. Learn the 5 practices for facilitating effective inquiry-oriented classrooms: Anticipating what students will do and what strategies they will use in solving a problem Monitoring their work as they approach the problem in class Selecting students whose strategies are worth discussing in class Sequencing those students' presentations to maximize their potential to increase students' learning Connecting the strategies and ideas in a way that helps students understand the mathematics learned
As high school math teachers shift to the Common Core State Standards, the question remains: What do the standards actually look like in the classroom? This book answers that question by taking you inside of real Common Core classrooms across the country. You’ll see how exemplary teachers are meeting the new requirements and engaging students in math. Through these detailed examples of effective instruction, you will uncover how to bring the standards to life in your own classroom! Special Features: A clear explanation of the big shifts happening in the classroom as a result of the Common Core State Standards Real examples of how exemplary teachers are using engaging strategies and tasks to teach algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, mathematics across the curriculum, and more A detailed analysis of each example to help you understand why it is effective and how you can try it with your own students Practical, ready-to-use tools you can take back to your classroom, including unit plans and classroom handouts

This study investigated the tutoring practices of mathematics tutors working in one university tutoring center and the corresponding rationale exhibited by the mathematics tutors. This study illustrates how the tutoring practices of mathematics tutors align with the Eight Mathematics Teaching Practices outlined in NCTM's recent publication Principles to actions: Ensuring mathematical success for all. The three participants were chosen from among five mathematics tutors who volunteered for this study, and were selected because they each had a different amount of tutoring experience and because they each had no prior teaching experiences outside of tutoring nor had they taken any courses about teaching. Data were collected by means of observations of the participants' tutoring and interviews focused on asking the participants to explain various decisions they were observed to make while tutoring. The observations and interviews were analyzed using qualitative coding. The significance of this study lies in its contribution to mathematics education research focused on how to utilize tutoring experiences as a means of providing pre-service mathematics teachers with authentic opportunities to practice the work of teaching mathematics.
