Organised by year level around the CCSS for Mathematics, Small shares approaches that will lead to a deeper and richer understanding within standards-based learning environments. The book then launches with kindergarten, where the first relevant standard is found in the operations and algebraic thinking domain, and ends with Year 8, where the focus is on working with linear equations and functions.

  4. A Close Look at Close Reading: Teaching Students to Analyze Complex Texts, Grades K-5

    While primary teachers are certainly willing to teach students to closely read both literacy and informational text, many are wondering what this involves. Is there a process to follow? How is close reading different from guided reading or other common literacy practices? Is it even possible for students in years F-5 to 'read to learn' when they're only just learning to read? Literacy experts Diane Lapp, Barbara Moss, Maria Grant and Kelly Johnson answer these questions and more as they explain how to teach young learners to be close readers and how to make close reading a habit of practice in the primary classroom. Equipping students with the tools and process of close reading sets them on the road to becoming analytical and critical thinkers - and empowered and independent learners.
