AB - The goal of this paper is to raise questions that mathematics teacher educators must address as we strive to define constructivist teaching in mathematics. In the paper, I describe three forms of listening typically found in the mathematics classroom: evaluative listening, interpretive listening, and hermeneutic listening, and suggest that hermeneutic listening is the form of listening required of a constructivist teacher. The arguments are supported with examples from preservice elementary teachers who ’ use evaluative listening in interactions with children and contrasted with an example from an experienced constructivist teacher who uses hermeneutic listening to create a model of students’ mathematical understanding that guides her teaching.
