Eliciting and Supporting Teachers' Openness to Discussing Deep Mathematical Issues


"The New Jersey Partnership for Excellence in Middle School Mathematics (NJ PEMSM) is an NSF-MSP project to help mid-career middle school mathematics teachers deepen their content understanding. Outside observers have noted that participants seem remarkably willing to reconsider the mathematics they teach and to discuss openly their questions and confusions. Authors present several conjectures about how NJ PEMSM achieves this level of engagement and trust and offer evidence collected from multiple sources to support these conjectures."
