Abstract

Mentors are experienced mathematics teachers who draw on their wealth of knowledge about what works and is effective in teaching and learning of mathematics. They reflect upon this knowledge to consider how to best mentor novice mathematics teachers. Research has shown that a focus on the socio-emotional and socialization roles could lead novice teachers themselves to focus (more) on generic rather than subject-specific pedagogy when planning for and teaching their subject. In this session we will consider how mentors could support their mentees by making the subject matter, its teaching and its relation to students explicit in their mentor-mentees conversations What will you take away from this session Take away…...An increased awareness of the importance of mentors being explicit about and able to articulate their own pedagogical reasoning in conversation with mentees.
