You are invited to the upcoming Mathematics Education Colloquium, on Friday, November 13, 2020, from 11:00 am-noon on Zoom. Dr. Anna DeJarnette and Dr. Casey Hord from the University of Cincinnati will be presenting Blending Perspectives: Studies of Discourse and Gesturing in Math and Special Education.
Abstract: In this talk, we will share how our work as researchers in math education and, respectively, special education has led to an ongoing collaboration to support pre-service teachers to facilitate meaningful mathematical conversations and conceptual learning for all students. Anna will describe how she has applied techniques of discourse analysis to document different aspects of students’ talk, including how students negotiate authority and co-construct mathematical ideas. Casey will summarize his research on mathematics interventions for students with mild disabilities, including the use of gestures and visual representations. We will discuss how our research trajectories have led to our collaborative work, as well as the affordances and challenges of bridging different perspectives. Finally, we will share an example from our current research to illustrate how we integrate our analysis discourse and gesturing between students and pre-service teachers.
