Journeying into the space of possibility

By Agatha L Lebethe

Abstract

Includes abstract.|Includes bibliographical references.This thesis stories the journey of a teacher who teaches teachers. On this journey, this teacher sets out to examine a mathematics inservice course that she teaches on at the University of Cape Town. The journey starts in frustration as the teacher questions the purpose and intent of the course and its curriculum. As she travels through the thesis, the teacher stops to enter into a conversation with four of her students. While she pays attention to the voices of her students, the teacher examines her assumptions, prejudices and habits of practice. The teacher tells her story in different voices and shows her connectedness to the research journey by her use of linguistic play and narrative style. The research journey becomes more than just an investigation. It is the expression of who the teacher/researcher is and who she eventually becomes as she journeys through the research
