In this study, the authors examined their efforts to teach beginning teachers’ formative assessment practices, specifically to elicit and interpret students’ mathematical thinking. This study surfaced a number of important ideas about scaffolding students’ learning of practice in the context of a commonly used teacher education assignment. The findings reveal that each scaffold examined in this paper appeared to support and shape student performance. Furthermore, fixed scaffolds designed in advance and scaffolds crafted in the moment based on the unfolding circumstances were both useful in supporting and shaping student practice.

Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching and the Mathematical Quality of Instruction: An Exploratory Study
This study illuminates the claims that teachers' mathematical knowledge plays an important role in their teaching of this subject matter. In particular, we focus on teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT), which includes both the mathematical knowledge that is common to individuals working in diverse professions and the mathematical knowledge that is specialized to teaching. A significant, strong, and positive association is found between levels of MKT and the mathematical quality of instruction.
