  3. 3. Becoming recognised as mathematically proficient : The role of a primary school teacher education programme

    Author : Andreas Ebbelind; Jeppe Skott; Gellert Uwe; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematics education; teacher education; primary school; prospective teacher; identity development; Patterns of Participation; ethnography.; Mathematical Education; Matematikdidaktik;

    Abstract : This study focuses on upper primary prospective teachers in their first years of a teacher education programme in Sweden, in particular, a 20-week mathematics education course. It aims to contribute with insight into how, or even if, experience from a teacher education programme and other relevant past and present social practices and figured worlds plays a role in prospective generalist teachers’ imaginings of themselves as primary mathematics teachers-to-be and potentially shapes their identity.
