Literature-Based Teaching in the Content Areas: 40 Strategies for K-8 Classrooms is a collection of 40 literature-based strategies to teach Key Stages 1-4 content areas: language arts and reading, social studies, mathematics, science, and the arts. Grounded in theory and research on best practices in each field, the strategies are classroom-tested and classroom-ready, with in-depth descriptions of practical activities. Each strategy describes in detail how to use one or more key books for each of the levels, Key Stage 1-2, Key Stage 3, and Key Stage 4, and also includes extensive book lists for creating classroom text sets. Ideas are also provided to differentiate instruction for English learners and struggling students. The book is full of teaching tools: specific questions and prompts for discussion and writing, graphic organizers and student writing frames, mini-lessons on skills and writing conventions, technology resources, and assessment ideas for each strategy. A teacher can dip into the book and choose a content area, strategy, and books to put to use immediately in the classroom.

This thorough and practical guide to teaching kindergarten through sixth grade level mathematics is a perfect combination of a math methods text and resource book for the pre-service and in-service elementary school teacher. The text's organization uses the NCTM standards as its overarching framework; a rich variety of chapter activities reinforces the standards, and includes many examples of cooperative learning strategies. Content chapters first develop a math topic, and then extend the same topic, thus providing foundational material for primary grades and even more appropriate material for upper elementary and intermediate grades. Other useful features highlight misconceptions often held about math operations and concepts, ways to be inclusive of various cultural backgrounds, findings from key research in mathematics, and key technology resources. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

With an emphasis on inquiry and process, "Teaching Mathematics in Elementary and Middle School "embraces active mathematics instruction and the development of mathematical thinking through problem solving. The text challenges future teachers to prepare their K-8 students for a world that requires a higher level of mathematical literacy and enables them to compete in a global society.Teachers will develop their own mathematical abilities, allowing them to help students discover a rich combination of thinking processes and problem-solving strategies, raising the learning expectations for all. Unique text features "TIE-Thought, Investigation and Exploration "features ask pre-service teachers to develop their own thinking and learning abilities, preparing them to better challenge their students. "Mathematics in the Real World," "Idea Files," and "Teacher Profiles "model best practices and supply readers with concrete teaching tools and strategies. "Mathematical Thinking," "Mathematical Games" and "Mathematics and Technology" features detail activities to engage and develop students' mathematical thinking. Accompanying student artifacts illustrate the progression of students' conceptual understanding. [CD logo replaces bullet] "Math Activities CD-ROM" provides an outstanding text component containing more than 100 activities that use a three-step process-explore, invent, discover-to foster the development of mathematical thinking through guided inquiry. Aligned with the NCTM standards, each activity is integrated within the text and designed to help develop students' conceptual understanding of mathematics. "Mathematics in Literature" offers thoroughly developed ideas for using children's literature to create meaningful contexts for mathematics learning. An extensive bibliography that can be used for this purpose appears on the CD-Rom. "I think the text is an excellent resource for elementary and middle school methods courses. In particular, I like how the textbook handles the 'bigger issues' such as geometric reasoning rather than just 'geometry.' I also like the excellent foundation in educational research that the textbook provides, as well as some very careful attention and consistent referencing to the NCTM standards and principles. The incorporation of classroom vignettes, teacher illustrations, and samples of student work also all add to the excellent grounding of the text in real world classroom work."

This third edition of T eaching Mathematics for the 21st Century continues to help teachers let the secret out–to open up to their students the wonderful discoveries and challenges of the pattern-making and problem-solving aspects of a fascinating subject: mathematics. The rationale remains the same–to enable prospective and current teachers to access and use tools and strategies to effectively teach mathematics to contemporary students. Changing demographics, knowledge of how people learn, and technology all impact the way we educate our young people. This edition incorporates lessons and strategies from programs that have proven success in many types of classrooms. Many of these examples help students connect mathematics to real life situations and communicate their understanding of the underlying concepts. Although technology is constantly being upgraded, ways to increase student motivation through its application remains a goal. For example--since applets can enhance a lesson whether the teacher uses a computer projector, a “smart” board, or has students work individually on computers--we have identified several sources of mathematics applets that can be correlated to various lessons. Research citations and summaries have been updated to reflect current information on teaching and learning. For future teachers.
