Given the persistent issues of the “thirdspace” (Bhabha, 1994; Zeichner, 2010) between university classes and practicum, two teacher educators engaged in a collaborative selfstudy of their practices through the lens of preservice teachers’ conversations about practicum. This paper details the NVivo sentiment analyses of conversations, emails, and r...

A student asks, "What is the difference between a negative sign and a minus sign?" I cringe. How do I address what I think the student is thinking? Why is it that as soon as a negative number is involved in a mathematical procedure, it suddenly becomes a significantly more difficult question. In this article, I explore the epistemological obstacles...
