Hello all, as my PGCEi come to an end, and with it my access to a treasure trove of articles, a quick question. Through your own studies, what has been a real great read? Perhaps it has been an article or a book but which piece of writing have you found most enlightening? My top four: 1) Carpenter, T.P. and Lehrer, R. (1999) Teaching and Learning Mathematics With Understanding. In Fennema, E. and Romberg, T. (Eds.) Mathematics Classrooms that Promote Understanding, pp.19-32. Mahwah: Lawrence Eribaum Associates. As a maths teacher the above article helped me tremendously 2) Mehan, H. (1979) “What time is is Denise?”: Asking Known Information Questions in Classroom Discourse. Theory into Practice, [online] 18(4): pp. 285-294. Available at: "What Time Is It, Denise?": Asking Known Information Questions in Classroom Discourse on JSTOR We all do it but the IRE trilogy explained above opened my eyes to my own classroom practise Gatto, J. T. (2005) Dumbing us Down: the Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling. 2nd ed. [online]. Gabriola Island, BC, Canada: New Society Publishers. The above just for the reality of it all and finally....... Dorling, D. (2010) Injustice: Why social inequality persists [online] . Bristol: Policy Press. Danny Dorling will seriously question the social order in your life! How how you?
