BOOK EXCERPT:

Which science curriculum will sustain the interest of my middle-grades students? How can I be certain the curriculum meets state standards? How will it help me reach all my students, even those who need extra help? How can I learn how to use these materials? These questions are on the minds of many middle school teachers, principals, and curriculum leaders as they respond to growing pressure to produce better-educated students. This authoritative handbook was designed to guide them the through the science curriculum selection process, helping them choose and use curricula that promote high standards of student achievement. Drawing on the expertise of the authors as well as interviews with dozens of practitioners, Guiding Curriculum Decision for Middle-Grades Science presents a framework for decision making, provides an overview of the curriculum decision-making process, and contains detailed information on a variety of science curricula and curriculum resources. The authors pose a set of critical questions for curriculum decision making that corresponds to a framework focused on three priorities: academic rigor, equity, and developmental appropriateness. Vignettes drawn from interviews with practitioners suggest not only what exemplary curricula look like in action, but also the kinds of professional development that help teachers implement them. Also included are profiles of high-quality curricula that illustrate the qualities identified in the framework, as well as information about additional curricula and professional development resources available in print and online.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Students learning math are expected to do more than just solve problems; they must also be able to demonstrate their thinking and share their ideas, both orally and in writing. As many classroom teachers have discovered, these can be challenging tasks for students. The good news is, mathematical communication can be taught and mastered. In Teaching Students to Communicate Mathematically, Laney Sammons provides practical assistance for K–8 classroom teachers. Drawing on her vast knowledge and experience as a classroom teacher, she covers the basics of effective mathematical communication and offers specific strategies for teaching students how to speak and write about math. Sammons also presents useful suggestions for helping students incorporate correct vocabulary and appropriate representations when presenting their mathematical ideas. This must-have resource will help you help your students improve their understanding of and their skill and confidence in mathematical communication.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Traditionally, vocational mathematics and precollege mathematics have been separate in schools. But the technological world in which today's students will work and live calls for increasing connection between mathematics and its applications. Workplace-based mathematics may be good mathematics for everyone. High School Mathematics at Work illuminates the interplay between technical and academic mathematics. This collection of thought-provoking essays--by mathematicians, educators, and other experts--is enhanced with illustrative tasks from workplace and everyday contexts that suggest ways to strengthen high school mathematical education. This important book addresses how to make mathematical education of all students meaningful--how to meet the practical needs of students entering the work force after high school as well as the needs of students going on to postsecondary education. The short readable essays frame basic issues, provide background, and suggest alternatives to the traditional separation between technical and academic mathematics. They are accompanied by intriguing multipart problems that illustrate how deep mathematics functions in everyday settings--from analysis of ambulance response times to energy utilization, from buying a used car to "rounding off" to simplify problems. The book addresses the role of standards in mathematics education, discussing issues such as finding common ground between science and mathematics education standards, improving the articulation from school to work, and comparing SAT results across settings. Experts discuss how to develop curricula so that students learn to solve problems they are likely to encounter in life--while also providing them with approaches to unfamiliar problems. The book also addresses how teachers can help prepare students for postsecondary education. For teacher education the book explores the changing nature of pedagogy and new approaches to teacher development. What kind of teaching will allow mathematics to be a guide rather than a gatekeeper to many career paths? Essays discuss pedagogical implication in problem-centered teaching, the role of complex mathematical tasks in teacher education, and the idea of making open-ended tasks--and the student work they elicit--central to professional discourse. High School Mathematics at Work presents thoughtful views from experts. It identifies rich possibilities for teaching mathematics and preparing students for the technological challenges of the future. This book will inform and inspire teachers, teacher educators, curriculum developers, and others involved in improving mathematics education and the capabilities of tomorrow's work force.
