Teachers' characteristics: One lesson, two learning environments

Diezmann, Carmel M. (2004) Teachers' characteristics: One lesson, two learning environments. In 27th Annual Conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 27-30 June 2004, Townsville, Qld..


This study explored the thinking exhibited by two teachers as they implemented a mathematical activity designed to introduce young children to investigations. The video data revealed substantial differences in the teachers’ distinguishing teaching characteristics. Differences in the quality of their specific teaching characteristics were also identified using a classroom observation instrument. These differences in teaching characteristics suggest that though the teachers ostensibly implemented the same lesson, there was considerable variation in the learning opportunities for each class.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
