This project aims to improve professional development programs for pre-service teachers (PSTs) as a way to improve student learning in mathematics and science. PSTs engage in a series of teaching cycles, and then engage in lesson study groups to develop, teach, and analyze a whole-class lesson. The cycle is completed by reexamining students' knowledge in teaching experiments with pairs of students. These teaching cycles are called Iterative Model Building (IMB).
About Me (Bio):
I am interested in teacher education, large scale assessment, and in mathematics concepts learning in computer-based environments. I have worked in the systematic development of educational multimedia products and directed several professional development projects. I teach mathematics methods courses and a doctoral seminar on technology in mathematics education.
