For those of you who have sponsored a student teacher or for new teachers:



What math topics, concepts or ideas do you wish your student teacher was
more knowledgeable about before student teaching?



For new teachers, what math topics, concepts or ideas did you learn in your
first year that you wished you had learned in your preparation to become a
teacher?



I?m not asking about education strategies like classroom management but
rather mathematical content. My student teachers frequently lament that the
topics in the math courses in college are so far removed from what they
teach that they feel underprepared in content. I?m compiling a description
of topics that could be used to form a new pre-service course connecting
college math to HS topics. If you teach a course like this for pre-service
teachers, I?d be happy to get your feedback, too.



Email me directly and I?ll post the compilation when I?m done: HYPERLINK
