  1. Rough Draft Math: Revising to Learn

    In Rough draft math, Mandy shares the power of infusing mathematics class with the spirit of revision so that students feel comfortable thinking aloud as they talk to learn through problem-solving, rather than talking only to perform right answers. In the process, a class of students becomes a community of mathematical thinkers and teachers gain access into their students’ ideas and understandings. Inside you’ll find the following: an exploration of what the idea of revision could mean for mathematics teaching and learning; classroom vignettes to see rough draft mathematics in action; specific teaching techniques to encourage and practice rough draft thinking; voices of teachers and students in rough draft classrooms; Mandy’s reflections about her own teaching as a work in progress.

  3. Transform Your K-5 Math Class: Digital Age Tools to Spark Learning

    Instead of drill-and-practice apps and worksheets, what if technology enabled exploration of mathematics concepts? Instead of screens for disconnected individual learning, what if technology fostered mathematical discourse and collaboration? Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching mathematics, what if we used technology to differentiate to meet students’ diverse needs? Technology has the power to support the teaching and learning of mathematics content at all grade levels, but the presence of technology is insufficient unless it’s paired with effective teaching practices and meaningful content. This book poses and unpacks the above questions and many more, with detailed classroom examples to illustrate practical strategies for integrating technology in the F-5 classroom.

  4. Teaching Words and How They Work: Small Changes for Big Vocabulary Results

    Research shows that vocabulary is the best support for students’ comprehension of narrative and information texts. Often, vocabulary instruction focuses on a few target words in specific texts. However, to understand the many new words in complex texts students need to know how words work. This book, written by an award-winning authority on reading instruction, shows teachers how to make small changes to teach more words and also how words work. Many of these small changes involve enrichments to existing vocabulary practices, such as word walls and conversations with students. Each chapter includes descriptions of teachers’ implementation of small changes to support big gains in students’ vocabulary. This book offers practical steps that F-8 teachers can use in any reading program.
