  1. Best Practices at Tier 3: Intensive Interventions for Remediation, Elementary

    In Best practices at Tier 3, the authors provide Years F–5 educators with research-based response to intervention (RTI) strategies to meet the needs of students who have fallen the furthest behind in the classroom. Using this guide, educators will ascertain how to improve their school’s Tier 3 intensive interventions so that they give these students the support they need to learn at the highest levels.

  2. Learning That Sticks: A Brain-Based Model for K–12 Instructional Design and Delivery

    In many classrooms, the emphasis is on instructional strategies that teachers employ rather than on what students should be doing or thinking about as part of their learning. What’s more, students’ minds are something of a mysterious ‘black box’ for most teachers, so when learning breaks down, they’re not sure what went wrong or what to do differently. It doesn’t have to be this way. Learning that sticks helps you look inside that black box. Bryan Goodwin and his coauthors unpack the cognitive science underlying research-supported learning strategies so you can sequence them into experiences that challenge, inspire and engage your students. As a result, you’ll learn to teach with more intentionality - understanding not just what to do but also when and why to do it.

  3. Probability for Kids: Using Model-Eliciting Activities to Investigate Probability Concepts

    Probability for Kids features real-world probability scenarios for students in Years 4-6. Students will encounter problems in which they read about students their age selling magazines for a school fund raiser, concerned about their homeroom assignments, and trying to decode the combination to a safe that their grandfather abandoned, among others, all of which maximise learning so students gain a deep understanding of concepts in probability.

  4. Mathematics Unit Planning in a PLC at Work®, Grades 3–5

    Mathematics unit planning in a PLC at Work®, Grades 3-5 provides third- to fifth-grade mathematics teachers with a seven-step framework for collectively planning units of study. The authors help teams identify what students need to know by the end of each unit and how teachers can build student self-efficacy. They advocate using the Professional Learning Community at Work (PLC) process to increase mathematics achievement and give students more equitable learning experiences. They share tools and protocols for effectively performing collaborative tasks, such as unwrapping standards, generating unit calendars, determining academic vocabulary and rigorous lessons, utilising and sharing self-reflections and designing robust fraction units.

  5. Coding + Math: Strengthen K–5 Math Skills With Computer Science

    How-to books related to computer science (CS) and teaching CS in K-12 environments are often either step-by-step guides or reference books, with little or no connection to pedagogy. By contract, Coding + math offers the analytical foundation teachers need to inform their practice, specifically in mathematics. This book will serve as a deep dive into CS integration for elementary teachers, providing guidelines for designing integrated CS/mathematics curricula through case studies and practical examples. Grounded in research, the book’s mini-lessons contrast visual-based coding with text-based programming and provide guidance in the selection and creation of lessons, instructional materials and CS platforms to help educators prepare students for the careers of the future.

  6. 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.

  7. Rev Up Robotics: Real-World Computational Thinking in the K–8 Classroom

    Rev up robotics shows educators how to begin incorporating robotics in tandem with computational thinking into content area lessons or electives. Part 1 covers the basics, defining robotics and sharing real-world applications along with how to teach foundational skills for computational thinking and computer science. Part 2 shows robotics in practice within the context of content areas and features lesson plans mapped to academic and technology standards, including the ISTE Standards and the Computer Science Teacher Association Standards. Part 3 offers advice on pedagogy and teaching strategies backed by research from the learning sciences, and shares approaches to teaching robotics using project-based learning or as part of after-school clubs or robotics competitions.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Teaching Tough Topics

    Teaching Tough Topics shows teachers how to lead students to become caring citizens as they read and respond to quality children’s literature. It focuses on topics that can be challenging to teach, yet are key to building a better understanding of social justice, diversity and equity. Each chapter in this practical book deals with an important tough topic designed to help students consider their own identities and the identities of others. Detailed lessons throughout the book offer independent and interactive activities that support diversity, empathy and tolerance. The lessons incorporate key picture books, novels, poetry, scripts and nonfiction as sources for responding through talk, writing and the arts.

  12. Uncovering Student Ideas in Science, Volume 1, Second Edition: 25 Formative Assessment Probes

    This second edition of Uncovering Student Ideas in Science, Volume 1, is loaded with classroom-friendly features to pinpoint what your students know (or think they know) so you can adjust your teaching accordingly. At the book's heart are 25 'probes' - easily administered formative assessments will determine your students' thinking on 60 core science concepts in a variety of areas, including light, sound, matter, gravity, heat, temperature, life science, and Earth and space science. The probes are invaluable formative assessment tools to use before you start a topic or unit. Each probe has been field-tested across multiple year levels and can be used at any point in an instructional cycle, and will help you understand what your students are thinking and adjust your instruction accordingly.
