The April issue of Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education has been published. The following articles are enclosed:
Gladys SterenbergJon R. Star and Sharon K. StricklandDevelopment of a performance assessment task and rubric to measure prospective secondary school mathematics teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge and skills
This is an interesting collection of articles, addressing a multitude of perspectives from the use of video in teacher education in the article by Jon R. Star and Sharon K. Strickland to Jesse L.M. Wilkins’ focus on the relationship between content knowledge, attitudes, beliefs and practices by elementary teachers. I find the latter article especially interesting, since it aims at analyzing relationships between knowledge, beliefs, attitudes and practices at the same time. All four are large fields of research, and this is therefore a brave attempt. I would like to question the choice of investigating the teachers’ practice through self-reporting in a survey though.
