Community Engagement: Talking about mathematics
Ewing, Bronwyn F. (2007) Community Engagement: Talking about mathematics. In Pugalee, David, Rogerson, Alan, & Schinck, Amelie (Eds.) Ninth International Conference : The Mathematics Education into the 21st Century Project, September 7-12 2007, University of North Carolina, Charlotte, North Carolina.
Implementing assessment into early childhood (EC) undergraduate courses necessitates supporting learners in informed and intentional ways; since knowing how to teach comes from within the act of teaching itself. Consequently their practical knowledge builds through deliberate events which stimulate further insight and skill in what they do. Taken-for-granted assumptions that undergraduate students bring to the classroom can be challenged in such ways that they make implicit ideas explicit subsequently changing them to correspond with their new practices. Students can “test” out alternative approaches in real classroom contexts and then refine their own practical knowledge through reflection.
