  3. Drones in Education: Let Your Students’ Imaginations Soar

    Drones are on the rise and the sky is the limit for teaching STEM skills with these unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). In the first guide to integrating drones into learning and teaching, authors Chris Carnahan, Laura Zieger and Kimberly Crowley provide everything teachers need to know to get a drone program off the ground at their schools. Drones in Education: Let Your Students' Imaginations Soar was written for educators who want to know more about the advantages incorporating drones can have on the effectiveness and appeal of their curriculum. The book covers such basic but important information as which drones need to be registered and where you can fly them. It also provides recommendations as to the drones that are best for specific students' age levels and subject areas.

  4. Number Sense Routines: Building Numerical Literacy Every Day in Grades K-3

    Just as athletes stretch their muscles before every game and musicians play scales to keep their technique in tune, mathematical thinkers and problem solvers can benefit from daily warm-up exercises. Jessica Shumway has developed a series of routines designed to help young students internalize and deepen their facility with numbers. The daily use of these quick five-, ten-, or fifteen-minute experiences at the beginning of math class will help build students' number sense.

  5. Math Exchanges: Guiding Young Mathematicians in Small-Group Meetings

    As in reading and writing workshop, students in Wedekind's math workshop are becoming self-directed and independent while participating in a classroom community of learners. Through the math exchanges, students focus on number sense and the big ideas of mathematics. Teachers guide the conversations with small groups of students, mediating talk and thinking as students share problem-solving strategies, discuss how math works, and move torward more effective and efficient approaches and greater mathematical understanding.
