This book's 50-plus lessons-each based on a different picture book or story-will help classroom teachers build a foundation for teaching math, science, and social studies concepts to their students. Each lesson uses children's literature to make challenging, abstract concepts relevant to children's lives, inviting them to learn these concepts while responding to a story's illustrations, theme, characters, and plot. The lessons also demonstrate how teachers can use children's literature to meet national standards in math, science, and social studies. Chapters 1 through 5 set the stage for using picture books, discussing the effective, imaginative integration of literature into the classroom. Teachers will learn to create an environment that ensures that when children and books come together, the experience is enjoyable and thought provoking. Chapters 6 through 9 provide individual lessons, by grade level, with detailed activities based on specific books.

Sam - a young and enthusiastic trainee teacher - asked the class, 'What is the difference between 7 and 6?'. Jo's hand shot up and he immediately responded, 'Well seven is all straight lines and sixes are all curly.' How can you help children to make progress in mathematical understanding? Children's mathematical misconceptions very often arise as a result of poor communication. This practical and innovative book presents a range of creative strategies to help teachers communicate effectively in the mathematics classroom, offering some new ways of presenting the fundamental concepts and principles of mathematics, and clearly demonstrating that the most effective form of communication is not always verbal. Each chapter focuses on a theme or concept central to the numeracy strategy, such as subtraction, shape and space, constructing and connecting 2D and 3D shapes, data-logging and graph interpretation, and mathematical reasoning. Each chapter supports teachers' subject knowledge as well as suggesting a range of communication strategies (e.g. speaking, listening, drawing, role play, and visual methods such as posters and ICT work) to help teachers and children to share and build on their understanding. All of the activities have been tried and tested in classrooms across Europe. Written by a team of highly experienced teachers, the book will be valuable reading for pre- and in-service teachers, teacher educators and anyone who has an interest in extending the ways children actively engage with mathematics. Teachers with EAL pupils in their class may find it of particular value in communicating mathematical concepts to those who find English difficult. The book is accompanied by a DVD which includes video clips of children at work in mathematics classrooms, software used in the project, copies of material from the book and additional activities.

Die "Teacher Education and Development Study: Learning to Teach Mathematics (TEDS-M)" der International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) war die erste international-vergleichende Studie, die den tertiaren Bildungssektor mit standardisierten Testungen in den Blick nahm. Die Studie verglich die am Ende der Mathematiklehrerausbildung erreichten Kompetenzen von Lehrkraften fur die Primarstufe und die Sekundarstufe I in 16 Staaten. Deutschland beteiligte sich mit reprasentativen Stichproben von Mathematiklehrkraften fur die Primarstufe bzw. die Sekundarstufe I im letzten Jahr ihrer Ausbildung aus allen Bundeslandern sowie einer reprasentativen Stichprobe von Lehrerausbildenden in entsprechenden Ausbildungsgangen. Diese Skalendokumentation enthalt - soweit freigegeben - die Instrumente aller TEDS-M-Befragungen und -Testungen in deutscher und englischer Sprache (einschl. Kodierleitfaden). Fur die Verwendung in weiteren Studien werden die Fragen zur Person ebenso dokumentiert wie die Fragen zu den Uberzeugungen und Lerngelegenheiten der angehenden Lehrkrafte sowie der Lehrerausbildenden. Die Skalendokumentation stellt so auch ein unverzichtbares Hilfsmittel dar, um mit den kurzlich freigegebenen TEDS-M-Datensatzen Sekundaranalysen durchfuhren zu konnen. Daruber hinaus konnen der Skalendokumentation die wichtigsten Kennwerte zu den TEDS-M-Ergebnissen entnommen werden: Haufigkeiten, Mittelwerte, Standardfehler, verschiedene Verteilungsmae und die Anteile fehlender Werte.

How do you get a fourth-grader excited about history? How do you even begin to persuade high school students that mathematical functions are relevant to their everyday lives? In this volume, practical questions that confront every classroom teacher are addressed using the latest exciting research on cognition, teaching, and learning. How Students Learn: History, Mathematics, and Science in the Classroom builds on the discoveries detailed in the bestselling How People Learn. Now, these findings are presented in a way that teachers can use immediately, to revitalize their work in the classroom for even greater effectiveness. Organized for utility, the book explores how the principles of learning can be applied in teaching history, science, and math topics at three levels: elementary, middle, and high school. Leading educators explain in detail how they developed successful curricula and teaching approaches, presenting strategies that serve as models for curriculum development and classroom instruction. Their recounting of personal teaching experiences lends strength and warmth to this volume. The book explores the importance of balancing students’ knowledge of historical fact against their understanding of concepts, such as change and cause, and their skills in assessing historical accounts. It discusses how to build straightforward science experiments into true understanding of scientific principles. And it shows how to overcome the difficulties in teaching math to generate real insight and reasoning in math students. It also features illustrated suggestions for classroom activities. How Students Learn offers a highly useful blend of principle and practice. It will be important not only to teachers, administrators, curriculum designers, and teacher educators, but also to parents and the larger community concerned about children’s education.
