What are conceptual metaphors
What are Conceptual Metaphors?

Each Literal Metaphor has a Conceptual Metaphor.

A Conceptual Metaphor is a mapping, attaching two different ideas together.

Metaphora- Greek - A Transfer


What are conceptual metaphors1
What are Conceptual Metaphors?

Literal Metaphor:

“Once I read it I kind of understood what it was saying”

Conceptual Metaphor:

WRITTEN PROBLEMS ARE SPOKEN PROBLEMS

TARGET DOMAIN IS () SOURCE DOMAIN


Try one
Try One

Literal Metaphor

“To solve it for me, it meant that I had to find it somehow.”

Conceptual Metaphor

PROBLEM SOLVING IS SEARCHING

ABSTRACT IDEA IS CONCRETE EXPERIENCE

(Structural Metaphor)


One more
One More…

Literal Metaphor

“So I don’t think this would be a route that Iwould immediately jump to.”

“I think I know where to go”

“I’m lost”

Conceptual Metaphor

PROBLEM SOLVING IS A JOURNEY


Metaphors describe shared experiences
Metaphors Describe Shared Experiences.

  • “So I don’t think this would be a route that I would immediately jump to.”

  • “I think I know where to go”

  • “I’m lost”


My work
My Work

  • 2011 I began applying this to problem solving (Pilot study with 9 high students)

  • 2012 22 Student Video Interviews

  • 2013 23 Teacher Video Interviews


Problem solving is
Problem Solving is…

  • JOURNEY

  • SEARCHING

  • DISCOVERY

  • BUILDING

  • PARTITIONING

  • PROCESS

  • VISUALIZATION

  • I became a better teacher from CMT analysis.

  • I began to use CMT in real time.

  • I listened to students, not for answers.

  • Brent Davis (1991)

Functions *(paraphrased)

STUDENT: hit on-targetwith the first shot, and would hit the corewith the second shot.

ASHLEY: If I shoot an arrow, and it hits a target, could I then shoot a second arrow, and hit the same target?

STUDENT: Well, yes.

ASHLEY: Could I hit two completely separate targets with a single arrow?

STUDENT No.

ONE ARROW (one input) TWO TARGETS (two outputs) NOT POSSIBLE.

  • Geometry Problems on first page of handout.

  • Student Transcript, try to identify, a common metaphor with the Bolded words.

  • Teacher Transcript, try to identify, a common metaphor with the Boldedwords.




What did you think
What did you think?

  • Were you overwhelmed?

  • Did your listening change?

  • What Conceptual Metaphors did people identify?

  • Can you see this being helpful for teachers?


Current work
Current Work

  • 2013 Intramural Grant creating Teacher Professional Development.

  • 2014 Pilot Professional Development with 4-8 teachers in local high schools on improving listening through CMT analysis.

  • 2015 Aim for NSF Discovery K-12 Grant with 30 teachers from multiple high schools.


Professional development
Professional Development

  • 1. Learn CMT with video, transcripts, and rewinding.

  • 2. Learn CMT with video.

  • 3. Learn CMT with each other in real time.

  • 4. Learn CMT in conversations with classroom.

  • 5. Generate Lesson Plans with CMT


Measuring results
Measuring Results

  • Pre-Test

    • Teacher Listening Style Profile

    • Student Perceptions of Teacher Listening

    • Time Teacher Spends in Class Listening

  • Summer Two-Week Professional Development

  • Teacher-Generated Lesson Plans

  • Post-Test

    • Teacher Listening Style Profile

    • Student Perceptions of Teacher Listening

    • Time Teacher Spends in Class Listening


  • SPRING 2013-PRELIMINARY DATA COLLECTION

  • -Collect initial data by recording teachers in classroom (time spent listening, type of listening).

  • -Teacher’s students complete initial survey about teacher listening (Student Perception Survey, SPS).

  • -Teachers complete both initial surveys about listening (Listening Styles Profile, LSP; Teacher Listening Survey, TLS)

  • SUMMER 2014-PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: TEN, 2-HOUR SESSIONS OVER TWO WEEKS.

  • FALL 2014-FINAL DATA COLLECTION

  • -Collect data by recording teachers in classroom (time spent listening, type of listening).

  • -Teacher’s students complete surveys about teacher listening (Student Perception Survey, SPS).

  • -Teachers complete both surveys about listening (Listening Styles Profile, LSP; Teacher Listening Survey, TLS).

  • -Data is analyzed by PI and Co-PI to look for changes in teacher listening behavior and pedagogical practices.

Conceptual metaphor theory cmt
Conceptual Metaphor Theory(CMT)

  • 1980’s Lakoff-”Metaphors We Live By” Cog Sci

  • 1990’s Sfard, English, Moschkovich DISCOURSE Davis (1991) Listening Theory

  • 2000’s Linguists (Kovecses) develop metaphorical systems as descriptive, not prescriptive. CMT Analysis used on mathematics (invented vs discovered)

  • 2007 Marcel Danesi uses CMT analysis to deconstruct the complexity in LEARNING mathematical concepts.


Trying cmt listening in real time
Trying CMT Listening in Real Time…

  • Imagine you had a piece of string. How would you shape this string to make a triangle bounded by the string with the greatest area?
