Connaissances professionnelles mobilisées et besoins des enseignants pour la mise en œuvre du curriculum de mathématiques au 4ème cycle de l’École Fondamentale au Burundi (Élèves de 12 à 15 ans).

Abstract : The curriculum reform that Burundi has initiated in basic and secondary schools calls for teaching practices to which some teachers were not initially trained. In our study, we are interested in teaching mathematics in the 4th cycle of the fundamental school. To help teachers caracterized by a variety of initial training profiles to implement this curriculum change, in-service teacher training for all teachers is provided during the school holidays. Our goal is to explore how teachers are using theirknowledge to implement the expected mathematics curriculum, and to analyze the needs related to their practices in order to improve the professionalization of initial and continuing education of teachers who teach in that cycle. The results obtained by performing a qualitative content analysis of data from the interviews conducted with 20 teachers and a statistical treatment with the SPSS software of data from the written questionnaire, sent to 105 teachers, are consistent. Teachers tend to follow thecurriculum prescriptions in the teacher's guide, which is considered as well constructed but is not likely to favor the reflexive work of teachers. Teachers who have been trained in mathematics teaching, rely on didactic and pedagogical knowledge acquired in initial training while the others exploit their experience in teaching. Continuing training do not match the expectations of teachers because of the short duration, the non-mathematical content and the disciplinary incompetence of the trainers. In order to improve the professionalization of training courses, initial teacher training institutions should refer to the subject-specific teaching, teaching and teaching skills needed to implement the current teaching curriculum. A reflection must be undertaken on the professional knowledge that should be the subject of initial training and on how to teach it. Continuing education should be organized on the basis of a prior analysis of the real needs of teachers. These continuing education and training which should be longer than usual should focus on the specific content and practices provided for in the curriculum, and provided by trainers chosen for their skills.
