    This Teacher's Bundle contains one copy of Which One Doesn't Belong? A Shapes Book (Student Book) and Which One Doesn't Belong? A Shapes Book (Teacher's Guide). Every colourful page of the Student Book contains a thoughtfully designed set of four shapes. Each of the shapes can be a correct answer to the question "Which one doesn't belong?" Because all their answers are right answers, students naturally shift their focus to justifications and arguments based on the shapes' geometric properties. In the companion Teacher's Guide, Christopher draws from both research and classroom experience to teach you how students' geometric thinking develops.

  6. Story: Still the Heart of Literacy Learning

    Stories surround us, support us and sustain us. We see and hear them when walking down the street, on our digital newsfeeds, in our interactions with one another, in the ways our students play and in literature, poetry, music, images, multimedia and dramatic works. While acknowledging the importance of teaching strategies to read different kinds of text, to write across genres, and to speak and listen with purpose, Katie Egan Cunningham reminds us that when we bridge strategy with the power of story, we deepen literacy learning and foster authentic engagement.

  12. Academic Conversations: Classroom Talk That Fosters Critical Thinking and Content Understandings

    Conversations push students to think and learn in lasting ways. Academic conversations are back-and-forth dialogues in which students focus on a topic and explore it by building, challenging and negotiating relevant ideas. Unfortunately, academic conversations are rare in many classrooms. Talk is often dominated by the teacher and a few students, or it does not advance beyond short responses to the teacher's questions. To address these challenges, Zwiers and Crawford have identified five core communication skills to help students hold productive academic conversations across content areas. Readers will find numerous practical activities for working on each conversation skill, crafting conversation-worthy tasks, and using conversations to teach and assess.
