Entering the Child's Mind

The Clinical Interview In Psychological Research and Practice

Entering the Child's Mind

Entering the Child's Mind teaches the "clinical interview" as a technique for gaining insight into a child's way of thinking. In the tradition of Piaget and Vygotsky, Dr. Ginsburg argues that standardized instruments of evaluation often fail to meet the challenges of complex cognition. He presents the clinical interview as a powerful tool that, when understood and used properly, can provide psychologists with a profound appreciation for children's thinking. This book represents the first comprehensive treatment of the theory and practice of the clinical interview method.

Bahamian Students' Experiences with Mathematics in American Universities and Colleges

Bahamian Students' Experiences with Mathematics in American Universities and Colleges

This longitudinal, qualitative, multi-case study examines the mathematical experiences of three Bahamian students pursuing science degrees in American universities and its relationship to their previous mathematical experiences in their Bahamian high schools. Drawing on cultural psychology and sociocultural theories of learning, this study found that the relationship between the academic preparedness of the participants on their experiences with collegiate mathematics is not limited to subject content only. The lessons learnt from the implied curriculum also play a role in their experiences with collegiate mathematics. Of the three participants, two have had to learn/develop techniques for studying because they had not been sufficiently challenged in their previous environments to do so. Each of the cases also highlights some powerful constructs needed for success in mathematics and at least two emphasize making connections between concepts, procedures, manipulatives/tools and multiple approaches when solving problems. This study contributes to an emerging area of research on student persistence in college-level mathematics courses as well as to the ongoing discussions in mathematics education regarding the role/importance of conceptual understanding and how to promote it. The study makes visible some of the ways in which students' post-secondary experiences with mathematics are shaped by their perception of their mathematical preparation, thus providing a basis for discussions of possible curricular change in the Bahamas. It also suggests that issues such as confidence and school/teacher expectations of students may play a role in the development of conceptual understanding.

Sociocultural Research on Mathematics Education

An International Perspective

Sociocultural Research on Mathematics Education

This volume--the first to bring together research on sociocultural aspects of mathematics education--presents contemporary and international perspectives on social justice and equity issues that impact mathematics education. In particular, it highlights the importance of three interacting and powerful factors--gender, social, and cultural dimensions. Sociocultural Research on Mathematics Education: An International Perspective is distinguished in several ways: * It is research based. Chapters report on significant research projects; present a comprehensive and critical summary of the research findings; and offer a critical discussion of research methods and theoretical perspectives undertaken in the area. * It is future oriented, presenting recommendations for practice and policy and identifying areas for further research. * It deals with all aspects of formal and informal mathematics education and applications and all levels of formal schooling. As the context of mathematics education rapidly changes-- with an increased demand for mathematically literate citizenship; an increased awareness of issues of equity, inclusivity, and accountability; and increased efforts for globalization of curriculum development and research-- questions are being raised more than ever before about the problems of teaching and learning mathematics from a non-cognitive science perspective. This book contributes significantly to addressing such issues and answering such questions. It is especially relevant for researchers, graduate students, and policymakers in the field of mathematics education.
