Despite their increasing population, many teacher preparation programs have yet to provide adequate preparation for teaching Emergent Bilinguals (EBs). To respond to this situation and to the high demand for effective teachers of EBs, the authors investigated how preservice teachers (PSTs) adapt mathematics lesson plans for EBs. Twenty-one secondary mathematics PSTs, enrolled in two university-based programs, participated in this study and developed lesson plans for EBs. The authors’ analysis revealed that although the PSTs frequently implemented visuals and group work strategies for EBs, they need to better integrate EBs’ funds of knowledge and academic language support.

Prospective Teachers’ Reasoning and Response to A Student’s Non-Traditional Strategy When Dividing Fractions
This study examined the reasoning and responses of prospective elementary and secondary teachers to a student’s non-traditional strategy for dividing fractions. The authors used a teaching-scenario task to explore the teachers' reasoning and responses. Six categories of reasoning were constructed, making a distinction between deep and surface layers. The connections between the participants’ reasoning, their teaching response, and their beliefs about mathematics teaching were investigated. The authors found that there were not only differences but also similarities between the prospective elementary and secondary teachers’ reasoning and responses.
