The Quality Teaching of Primary School Mathematics - Part B

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This paper is the second of two detailing the development of a model of quality mathematics teaching. Within the context of a PhD self-study project, investigating the experience of trying to implement best practices in teaching primary school mathematics as a beginning teacher, a framework of quality mathematics teaching was developed. This framework linked the generic elements of quality teaching identified in the NSW model of pedagogy with the components of effective mathematics teaching identified in the work of Doug and Barbara Clarke as well as the broader mathematics education literature. Coding guidelines for assessing the quality of mathematics pedagogy were subsequently developed and utilised for analysing video-taped lessons. This model was found valuable in the process of self assessment and refl‚ection and would be useful in planning for improvement in teaching practice.
