It’s like you’re a teacherǃ a social semiotic analysis of authority relations among high school mathematics students

Jennifer Langer-Osuna, Indigo Esmonde

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter draws from social semiotics to explore how recent trends in mathematics pedagogy affect classroom interaction. We perform a genre analysis on several excerpts of classroom interaction, drawn from classrooms in transition, from a more teacher-centered approach, toward approaches that invest students with authority to construct mathematics for themselves. We use these excerpts to show the challenge of shifting from a familiar genre to the more experimental student-centered pedagogies.
