It's All About Thinking: Collaborating to Support All Learners in Mathematics and Science
Format: Paperback
Grade Levels: University/College;

Collaborating to Support All Learners in Mathematics and Science

Grade: for grades 5-12

In this second volume of It’s All About Thinking, the authors focus their expertise on the disciplines of mathematics and science, translating principles into practices that help other educators with their students.

How can we help students develop the thinking skills they need to become successful learners?
How does this relate to deep learning of important concepts in mathematics and science?
How can we engage and support diverse learners in inclusive classrooms where they develop understanding and thinking skills?
In this book, Faye, Leyton and Carole explore these questions and offer classroom examples to help busy teachers develop communities where all students learn. This book is written by three experienced educators who offer a welcoming and “can-do” approach to the big ideas in math and science education today. In this book you will find:

insightful ways to teach diverse learners (Information circles, open-ended strategies, inquiry, manipulatives and models)
lessons crafted using curriculum design frameworks (udl and backwards design)
assessment for, as, and of learning
fully fleshed-out lessons and lesson sequences; inductive teaching to help students develop deep learning and thinking skills in Math and Science
assessment tools (and student samples) for concepts drawn from learning outcomes in Math and Science curricula
excellent examples of theory and practice made accessible
real school examples of collaboration — teachers working together to create better learning opportunities for their students

The Learning Pathway
Authors:
Format: Paperback
Grade Levels: University/College;

The Learning Pathway is intended as a companion document to your current mathematics instruction and as an assessment tool you can use throughout the school year. The Learning Pathway is based on extensive research that shows all students progress through three global developmental stages (Counting, Part-Whole Thinking, and Proportional Reasoning) when learning the key topics in mathematics. It is designed to help you do the following: Plan ongoing assessment to determine your students' points of strength, as well as plan next steps for instruction. Focus on key growth points that students travel through as they consolidate their content knowledge and apply their learning in real-world contexts. Plan focused instruction to meet your students' needs, as well as guide formative assessment and reporting to parents. Differentiate your instruction for student learning, according to the math that is just beyond each student's current ability. Highlight the important roles that Knowledge, Application of Knowledge and Modelling and Communicating Mathematical Thinking play as students construct their understanding of concepts in mathematics. Use signposts that follow the principles of student global developmental stages of growth in mathematics. Establish a bridge between actual classroom practice and the curriculum.
