The following references have all been mentioned somewhere in this website and are recommended for further reading, with a brief comment after each one.

The reference text we use about action research, with each stage of the cycle set out clearly and with activities to support development.

The notion of ‘purposes’ guides our work with teachers.

Part of this book sets out the idea of ‘heightened listening’ and goes in to more detail about using video with teachers.
Gattegno, C. (1974). The common sense of teaching mathematics. New York: Educational Solutions.
Gattegno’s ideas are a root of many ideas on this website and influenced the OU method of working on video.

This, for us, is the seminal text in relation to working on video with teachers.

From a non-mathematics background, this paper sets out key dimensions to guide decision-making.

An alternative to the way of working with video on this website is described here.
Mason, J. (1996). Personal enquiry: Moving from concern towards research. In (Monograph R) ME822 Researching Mathematics Classrooms. Milton Keynes: The Open University.
Mason influenced the Open University work with video and the paradigm of ‘noticing’ fits well with the way of working described in this website.
