Preservice Teachers Problem-Solving Lesson Engagement and Knowledge and Beliefs about Teaching for Equity Chapter uri icon


  • 2015 Sense Publishers. All rights reserved. Preparation for teaching for equity requires both mathematics knowledge for teaching (Ball, Hill, & Bass, 2005; Kulm, 2008) and knowledge of how to address the complexities of teaching all students with wide-ranging needs (Achinstein & Athanases, 2005). Teachers need strong mathematics knowledge for teaching (Kulm, 2008) and equity consciousness (McKenzie & Skrla, 2011) to be effective in culturally and ethnically diverse middle grade classrooms. Watson, Charner-Laird, Kirkpatrick, Szczesiul, and Gordon (2006) stated that very few teacher education programs have successfully tackled the challenging task of preparing teachers to meet the needs of diverse populations (p. 396).
