Description and purpose

Curriculum materials and the interaction with these materials and resources are central in teacher education and professional development. Teachers’ use and learning from text-based materials depend to a large extent on the characteristics of the materials, on the teaching activities in which teachers are engaged, teachers’ beliefs and knowledge, and how these are aligned with the curriculum (Davis & Krajcik, 2005; Remillard, 1999). What kinds of curriculum materials do teachers select and use, and how? How do teachers learn from these materials, and in which ways do they ‘tailor’ them for their use and pupil learning? These factors interact in complex ways, as teachers select, interpret and shape the materials, individually and collaboratively with groups of colleagues. The characteristics of the resources shape teacher activity; analysis of these characteristics informs the preparation of the mathematics for students, and more generally teacher classroom practice and the development of teacher professional knowledge.

Introduction: the editors

Section 1: Teacher resources

The first section of the book focuses on the kinds and nature of resources for mathematics teachers from a practical, methodological and theoretical point of view.  It examines what is, or is not, available for teacher professional activity. It also introduces the question of what kinds of changes are afforded by particular  resources and examines teacher interaction with these resources.

Section 2: Text and Curriculum resources

The second section of the book focuses on the characteristics of curriculum materials, in particular how the cultural context influences the materials. It raises questions about the design of curriculum materials, about their integration, appropriation, and transformation by teachers in and for their everyday teaching. Is teachers’  use of resources ‘aligned’ with the use envisioned by curriculum designers? What are the implications for teacher professional development?  It examines the various factors shaping the nature of the resources, their design and their use, and with a specific focus on cultural factors.

Section 3: Use of resources

The third section of the book focuses on the use of resources by teachers and students, in-class and out-of-class. It studies the influence of the resources’ characteristics on teacher and student activity. Furthermore, it considers the interactions between the various educational agents, and the implications  of these interactions on the development and design of resources.

Section 4: Collaborative use

The fourth section of the book focuses on the collaborative aspects of teacher documentation. Teachers are in contact with and work with various groups and communities, and this dimension is particularly considered here.  Concepts are introduced which illuminate the influence of the nature of the groups and communities on teacher documentation work, the particularities of the processes of documentation within collectives, and individual-collective relationships. It focuses on possible roles and interventions of various kinds of collectives in mathematics teacher education.
