Preparing to Use the Teachers Empowered to Advance Change in Mathematics Modules: Considerations for Mathematics Teacher Educators
This chapter highlights decisions mathematics teacher educators might make as they prepare to use the Teachers Empowered to Advance Change in Mathematics (TEACH Math) modules in their own courses. These modules are designed to support prospective teachers in integrating a focus on children’s mathematical thinking and their community and family-based knowledge in their mathematics instruction. Considerations for mathematics teacher educators include how to start integrating the modules into an existing course, suggestions for connecting to big ideas in mathematics education, and potential context adaptations. Expected tensions are also presented and discussed.
