ab: Collaboration between researchers, classroom teachers and students is
necessary in order to develop curricular materials which will be used
effectively in classrooms. A continuous recursive process of
collaborative planning, implementation, reflection, evaluation and
revision makes the separation of mathematics education theory and
practice almost impossible. In this paper we will share the story of a
collaborative effort, in the United States, by mathematics and special
education researchers, middle school teachers and students in an NSF
funded research project to develop a teacher enhancement program for
inclusive classrooms at the middle school level. We will share some
examples of how the experiences have informed both the ongoing design
of the teacher enhancement program and the classroom materials. (orig.)
