Students, alumni and faculty from the Curry School of Education were recently recognized by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Eileen Merritt, a doctoral student in Curry’s Educational Psychology: Applied Developmental Science (EP:ADS); Erin Ottmar, a PhD graduate of Curry’s EP:ADS program; Temple A. Walkowiak, who earned her Ph.D. at the Curry School in Elementary Mathematics; Sara Rimm-Kaufman, associate professor of EP:ADS ; and Robert Berry, associate professor of Mathematics Education were co-authors of the winning volume of Teaching Children Mathematics: “A Reflection Framework for Teaching Math.”
From the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics website:
In 2010, NCTM’s Research Committee created the Linking Research and Practice Outstanding Publication Award to recognize work that integrates research and practice and is disseminated to practitioner audiences. Each year one article from each practitioner journal—Teaching Children Mathematics, Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, and Mathematics Teacher—will be selected. Based on criteria ranging from timeliness to applicability, the annual award is given to a research-based article in one of the NCTM school journals.
Members of NCTM’s Research Committee reviewed every article published in each school journal during a volume year, then narrowing the field to the top-three candidates from each journal. The entire committee read the nine articles and made its decision.
The winners of the 2010-2011 volume year awards are:
Teaching Children Mathematics (Volume 17)
Eileen G. Merritt, Sara E. Rimm-Kaufman, Robert Q. Berry III, Temple A. Walkowiak, and Erin R. McCracken, “A Reflection Framework for Teaching Math” (November 2010, pp. 238–48)
