This book offers friendly guidance on how to work with adult learners to develop their numeracy and mathematics skills. It brings together current research and practice on teaching adult numeracy into one handy volume and covers the major issues faced by teachers of adult numeracy such as current policy perspectives and implications for teaching practice. There are reflective tasks throughout, which encourage you to develop and apply your theoretical knowledge to your own experiences. Key features include: Reviews of existing policy and research and implications for practice Reflective tasks with commentary, encouraging you to develop and apply your knowledge Case studies of real student experiences Practical activities and ideas to support the planning, teaching and assessment of adult numeracy Drawing on the substantial experience of the contributors, who have a wealth of experience as practitioners and researchers in the field, this book is an essential resource for trainee and practising teachers of adult numeracy and mathematics. It is also an ideal textbook to support teacher training courses leading to a subject specific qualification in teaching numeracy to adults. Contributors: Jackie Ashton, John Barton, Carolyn Brooks, Martyn Edwards, Janette Gibney, David Holloway, David Kaye, Beth Kelly, Barbara Newmarch, Helen Oughton, David Prinn, Diana Spurr, Rebecca Woolley "This is a quite unique book about teaching adult numeracy, which will be invaluable to the many practitioners in this field. The chapters, contributed by a group of experienced and successful lecturers and practitioners, include all aspects of this field, from methods of teaching specific mathematical topics to more general explorations of dyscalculia and emotional factors in adult learners. Each chapter includes research findings and thoughtful presentation of ideas with practical ideas for teaching, and tasks for the reader. This is a market which has not been served well in the past, so it is good to see the gap filled at last." Margaret Brown, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics Education, King's College London, UK "The editors of this book set out to produce a text that would support teacher-education programmes for adult numeracy, and their book does that and more. The content covers different types of learners, different settings, different understandings of what numeracy actually is; and ranges from commentary on research through case studies to "how to" hints and tips for teaching. Chapters 7 (on provoking mathematical thinking) and 8 (attitudes, beliefs and teaching) should be a required read for any adult numeracy teacher. The book would be at home on any numeracy teacher's desk, and would make an excellent set text for numeracy teacher training courses." Carol Randall, course co-ordinator for numeracy in the department of Lifelong Learning Teacher Education, University of Greenwich, UK "This book is a welcome addition to the growing literature on adult numeracy. It should be essential reading for trainee and practising adult numeracy educators. It brings together relevant research and professional wisdom on a wide variety of aspects of adult numeracy teaching and learning in an accessible way, with well-focussed tasks for readers to extend their knowledge and understanding. While the book is born out of UK concerns and issues, it is also relevant to international readers. Highly recommended."

This timely book builds on our current understanding of how to effectively teach mathematics, and borrows from the successful frameworks used to teach literacy. It introduces a numeracy framework— sense maker, skill user, thought communicator, and critical interpreter—that supports an integrated approach to math instruction. It considers the mathematical practices students need to learn to construct number knowledge, become mathematicians, and simply “do math”. The goal is to provide multiple entry points into the world of math instruction—a new way of thinking and learning where learners engage in critical thinking about numeracy and act on their knowledge.

This book explores the social practice of literacy, numeracy and language and its implications for teaching and learning adult basic skills. Leading international experts argue that literacy, numeracy and language are more than just a set of skills or techniques, but are shaped by the social and cultural context within which they are taking place; the meanings they have for users; and the purposes they serve. This shifts the focus from a narrow, functional and externally imposed definition of literacy, numeracy and language learning, to more open and numerous definitions that focus on what people do with their knowledge, understanding and skills in a range of contexts. Adult Literacy, Numeracy and Languageshows how the social practice approach to learning and teaching can be used to develop more inclusive views of adult literacy, numeracy and language. Bringing together the views of researchers, policy makers and practitioners, it helps readers to develop an understanding of contemporary policy developments and encourages them to examine their own practice as adult basic education teachers, in order to respond more effectively to the needs of their students. This book is a valuable resource for practitioners, researchers and students on courses in adult and continuing education (particularly basic skills), postgraduate students, and researchers in the field of post-compulsory education.

In light of an OECD survey of 24 countries ranking England and Northern Ireland 22nd for literacy and 21st for numeracy, a more joined-up Government approach is needed to tackle the alarmingly low levels of adult literacy and numeracy. While the Government pledges free training and tuition for any adult who wishes to study English and maths up to and including GCSE level, adults with the most limited skills were not aware of the support available. There is little rigorous or uniform assessment in place for when adults claim unemployment benefit-despite the fact that this is an ideal opportunity to help adults to gain essential skills needed to get a job. The Department for Work and Pensions, the Department for Business, Innovation, and Skills, and Jobcentre Plus and skills providers should work closely to ensure there is consistent and thorough assessment of skills at the earliest possible stage of unemployment benefit claims. The Committee urges a more flexible approach to adult learning, both in the types of programme on offer and in the types of funding given by the Government. There is also concern about reductions in funding to adult learning schemes and the Government is advised to reverse its decision to cut funding to Unionlearn, a scheme which has achieved outstanding results at a fraction of the cost of full-time formal education. The Government should also move away from its preoccupation with GCSEs as the 'gold standard' of measurement for adult skills, as less linear and traditional learning schemes are often more effective

'Unlike many books based on research work this book doesn't just let teachers know what is going wrong with children's learning it actually gives some practical advice about what to do next. The whole book is based upon extensive observation and recording of individual children and their difficulties with mathematics. These children are the most difficult to plan for in a busy classroom and the authors appreciate the small steps and the different learning styles approaches needed for these children. This approach fits well with the NNS wave and springboard materials but takes the analysis of the individual's difficulties to a more detailed level. The book brings together research carried out across a range of countries and therefore shows the versatility of the approaches taken. This will be a very useful book for trainee teachers as it exemplifies how to use assessment to feed into teaching. It will be helpful for class teachers and mathematics co-ordinators as well as SENCOs to assist in improving the teaching and learning for specific children in our schools' - Mary Briggs, Primary and Early Years PGCE Co-ordinator, Institute of Education, University of Warwick 'This is a highly practical resource that will be appreciated by classroom and specialist teachers alike. It will provide teachers new to the Math Recovery program with practical help and support to diagnose errors and misconceptions in early numeracy. Practicing Math Recovery Specialists will be thrilled with the addition of four new highly focused assessments and an elaboration of the Learning Framework in Number. Early Numeracy is admirably grounded in international research and well-established theory, characteristics that are much sought after in the current data driven educational environment. Like many others, I was drawn to Math Recovery after reading the first edition of Early Numeracy. This second edition is a treasure - it is exciting to consider the impact it will have on children and teachers, and to the growth of the Math Recovery program' - Audrey Murray, Lead Teacher, Midwest Math Recovery Training Center, Minneapolis This text has been fully updated to include developments and refinements brought about by widespread international application of the assessment tools in the Mathematics Recovery Programme. The book will help practitioners to identify and provide detailed analyses of all children but especially those who are able and those who underachieve in early numeracy. It will enable teachers, learning support personnel, numeracy consultants and educational psychologists to advise colleagues and parents on children's number knowledge and strategies for early numeracy. The Mathematics Recovery Programme has been successfully applied in Australia, the United Kingdom and Ireland, the United States and Canada, both in specialist interventions and classroom settings. The revised version shows how familiarisation with, and understanding of, the diagnostic assessment tools has allowed teachers to become more knowledgeable in understanding children's difficulties and misconceptions, and more skilled and confident in planning programmes of intervention and monitoring the children's progress. This new edition includes: - Integrated frameworks of useful tasks for assessing children's number knowledge and strategies; - Four separate and revised diagnostic assessment interviews; - Assessments for addition and subtraction strategies, Base Ten Arithmetical strategies, Early Grouping strategies, and Advanced Grouping strategies in the four operations; - How the assessment process has impacted significantly on teachers' professional development and contributed to the raising of standards in early numeracy.

Under-achievement in maths is a growing concern for many teachers. This book shows how a developmental approach to teaching maths can help to both identify difficulties and raise children's achievement. Beginning with the Early Years, age - focused chapters outline some of the strategies that can be used to identify those in need of special teaching. Practical examples show how these strategies can be applied in classroom situations. Beginning with the early years, age-focused chapters look at: the knowledge children develop outside school how teachers can assess and build on that knowledge children's misunderstandings in maths, and how to remedy these. This book also outlines some of the strategies that can be used to identify those in need of special teaching. Practical examples show you how these strategies can be applied in classroom situations. Each chapter is closely linked to the requirements of the National Numeracy Strategy, and example lesson plans and activities are included detailing ways of using recommended strategies within the numeracy hour.

This volume explores the concept of 'citizenship', and argues that it should be understood both as a process of becoming and the ability to participate fully, rather than as a status that can be inherited, acquired, or achieved. From a courtroom in Bulawayo to a nursery in Birmingham, the authors use local contexts to foreground how the vulnerable, particularly those from minority language backgrounds, continue to be excluded, whilst offering a powerful demonstration of the potential for change offered by individual agency, resistance and struggle. In addressing questions such as 'under what local conditions does "dis-citizenship" happen?'; 'what role do language policies and pedagogic practices play?' and 'what kinds of margins and borders keep humans from fully participating'? The chapters in this volume shift the debate away from visas and passports to more uncertain and contested spaces of interpretation.
