To date, a vast majority of classrooms continue to fall short in the implementation and direction of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM), in part because most of these classrooms continue to use traditional methods for teaching mathematics. That is about to change, and Mathematics in the K-8 Classroom and Library shows you how it's done. After an introduction to the NCTM's principles and process standards, each remaining chapter is devoted to an NCTM content standard. The book offers engaging, research-based strategies and booklists of specific titles that, together, can be used to increase student achievement. The strategies suggested here provide a hands-on, student-centered focus that allows students to make connections with prior learning, personal experiences, and good books. Both the recommended children's books and the activities will appeal even to reluctant readers and students for whom mathematics might be a challenge. Each chapter includes an extensive, annotated list of texts, dozens of hands-on activities, handouts, and writing prompts.
