Addressing the needs of struggling learners. (English)
Teach. Child. Math. 14, No. 6, 340-343 (2008).
From the introduction: When research leads to changes in practice, the theory-practice link is strengthened. However, at times, teachers find it difficult to link educational research to their everyday practice in teaching mathematics. It is with a certain pleasure, then, that I bring you an example of how participation in a research study stimulated a kindergarten teacher to act as a teacher-leader for her grade level. She initiated a project in support of the development of the mathematical thinking of some of the children that kindergarten teachers identified as struggling with mathematics. Their story demonstrates how participation in research provides a platform from which teachers can expand their mathematical teaching practice to support learners, in this case, struggling learners of mathematics.
