Creating equitable practice in diverse classrooms: Developing a tool to evaluate pedagogy.
MetadataShow full item record
With Australia performing so poorly in terms of equity in mathematical achievement on the PISA scores, there is an increasing recognition for practices that may stem the inequities in education in this country. This paper explores an approach that has been found to be highly successful in the United States and links it to current issues in Australian education. Practical considerations are made regarding the application and implementation of such reform pedagogy when particular nuances of Australian issues are considered. In particular, the development of a tool to evaluate reform pedagogy is the focus of this paper.
