Thanks for all the replies on the content preparation of student teachers.

I've posted a document with the actual comments made by teachers about the
math preparation of student/new teachers. I've edited the responses for
spelling and privacy.

There are a lot of good ideas here, but I think focusing on two main themes
would be productive: (1) multiple representations: graphing, word problems,
algebraic expressions, numerical data and (2) vertical alignment: how does
this concept tie in with previous lessons and courses in the curriculum and
where will this idea go in future lessons and courses. Both of these themes
focus on connections between concepts. Use of technology would be an
integral part of the course as well.
