Most widely held works by Tony Brown
Coordinating mathematics across the primary school by Tony Brown( )
10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematics education and language interpreting hermeneutics and post-structuralism by Tony Brown( )
28 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Contemporary thinking on philosophy and the social sciences has primarily focused on the centrality of language in understanding societies and individuals, important developments which have been under-utilised by researchers in mathematics education. In this revised and extended edition, this book reaches out to contemporary work in these broader fields, adding new material on how progression in mathematical learning might be variously understood. A new concluding chapter considers how teachers experience the new demands they face."--BOOK JACKET
Regulatory discourses in education a Lacanian perspective by Tony Brown( )
14 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
New teacher identity and regulative government the discursive formation of primary mathematics teacher education by Tony Brown( )
18 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"New Teacher Identity and Regulative Government documents in real time the implementation of a major government numeracy programme and its receipt by trainee and new teachers. It shows how such managerialist policies cast teachers as civil servants through de-professionalising the conception of their role. The book provides an easy and accessible commentary utilising contemporary theory to describe how such teachers reconcile their personal aspirations with the external demands they encounter in negotiating their identities as professional teachers. It further shows how recent advances in psychoanalytic and post-structuralist theory enable a fresh approach to analysing teacher experience of, and response to, policy implementation. And more broadly, by situating education in a wider social framework, this book demonstrates how we can better formulate solutions to new problems in conceptualising education policy." "This book will be of interest to researchers in mathematics education, teacher education, policy implementation, contemporary theory and psychoanalysis in education, as well as to student teachers, teacher educators, teachers carrying out in-service training and postgraduate students in education."--Jacket

Becoming a mathematics teacher identity and identifications by Tony Brown( )
13 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation The book is centered on how major curriculum reform shapes mathematics and the professional practices of teachers. This book documents in real time the implementation of a major government numeracy programme and its receipt by trainee and new teachers. It documents the complete life span of that initiative. The account is targeted at an international readership in terms of how curriculum reform more generally shapes mathematics in schools and the practices of teachers. A key dimension of the book is an alternative view of mathematics education research in which the task of teacher development is understood at policy level where large numbers of teachers were interviewed to assess how policies were being processed through individuals. The book provides an easy and accessible commentary utilising contemporary theory to describe how such teachers reconcile their personal aspirations with the external demands they encounter in negotiating their identities as professional teachers
Mathematics education and subjectivity cultures and cultural renewal by Tony Brown( )
13 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is centrally concerned with how mathematics education is represented and how we understand mathematical teaching and learning with view to changing them. It considers teachers, students and researchers. It explores their mathematical thinking and the concepts that this thought produces. But also how these concepts acquire cultural layers that mediate our apprehension. The book examines some of the linguistic and socio-cultural filters that influence mathematical understanding. But above all it introduces some contemporary theories of human subjectivity, in which subjectivity is seen
Action research and postmodernism : congruence and critique by Tony Brown( Book )
9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A premise of much teacher research is that reflection on practice can lead to a development of that practice. Such reflection, it is purported, enables the practitioner in organising the complexity of the teaching situation, with a particular emphasis on how 'monitoring of change' can be converted to 'control of change'. This book questions the notion of construing developing practice as 'aiming for an ideal' and suggests that such a pursuit has a questionable track record. The very desire for control, and the difficulties encountered in trying to document it can cloud our vision from the very complexities we seek to capture. The book offers detailed discussion of teacher research enquiries carried out in the context of masters and doctoral degrees. It focuses in particular on how the reflective writing generated by the teacher might build towards an assertion of professional identity through which professional demands are mediated. -- Back cover

The psychology of mathematics education : a psychoanalytic displacement ( Book )
7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book paints an alternative and contemporary portrait of psychology within mathematics education, drawing on psychoanalytic practices and theory. Mathematics education is still a fairly new social science that began as an adjunct to the practice of mathematics in schools some forty years ago, defined by a marriage with cognitive psychology. As a consequence school mathematics has often been seen as a scientific enterprise centred on the operation of individual minds confronting mathematical ideas. Meanwhile, psychoanalysis had earlier come into existence through the work of Sigmund Freud. And for much of his life Freud had similarly seen his work as scientific, a view that later fuelled mainstream practices in psychology. Yet Freud's engagement with his patients combined with his literary capabilities produced surprising results defining humans in ways that transcended mere scientific assessment. Rather his accounts of humans weaved a rich social tapestry in which individuals were understood relationally to those who shared their world. And through re-telling the story lines of their lives individuals were able to create alternative futures. This dimension of Freud's work provoked an alternative tradition, best exemplified in the work of Lacan, in which narrative-based understandings linking humans to the social world replaced cognitive models centred on controlling individuals through particular understandings of normality. Through its eleven chapters this book provides accounts of how children, teachers, researchers and mathematical learning can be understood differently, towards emphasising how they are each consequential to the many ways in which the world can be created and described

Education what really works? ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Parents, especially Black parents, have been increasingly drawn to private schools, secular and religious, for a better education for their children. This movement is fed by a widespread belief that the public school system is broken beyond repair. Dr. Lois Harrison-Jones, an associate clinical professor of Educational Administration at Howard University, and Imam Yesef Saleem, national director of the Muslim American Society School System, give their spin on what really works in education
