The Teachers' Lounge: Place Value and Division is one of five units in the Contexts for Learning Mathematics' Investigating Multiplication and Division (3 - 5) The focus of this unit is division. It begins with the story of a teacher noticing a service person in the teachers' lounge fill two different vending machines with beverages. In the first machine, there are bottles of water only. The machine holds 156 bottles of water when full and the teacher wonders how many six-packs that might be. The second problem involves the juice machine. It also holds 156 bottles when full, but the bottles are partitioned into six columns because there are six different flavors of juice. The teacher wonders how many there are of each flavor. Although most students do not realize it at the start, the two problems are related. The first problem is a quotative division situation - the amount in each group is known, the number of groups is not. The second problem is a partitive division situation - the number of groups is known, the amount in each group is not. The problems are juxtaposed and given together to encourage students to examine the relationship between the two kinds of division. This story context of the teachers' lounge sets the stage for a series of investigations designed to support the development of a repertoire of strategies for multiplication and division, including the use of: * the ten-times strategy * partial products and partial quotients * the associative property * the distributive property of multiplication over addition - the basis for the long division algorithm Several minilessons for multiplication and division are also included in the unit. These are structured as strings of related problems designed to more explicitly guide learners toward computational fluency. Toward the end of the unit, discussion shifts to how the context of a division problem influences what to do with the remainder. Note: The context for this unit assumes that your students will have had prior experience using arrays for multiplication. If this is not the case, you might find it helpful to use the unit Muffle's Truffles first. To learn more visit http://www.contextsforlearning.com

From the critically acclaimed author of Daddy Needs a Drink—hailed by the Los Angeles Times as “consistently hilarious”—comes a series of irreverent, wickedly observant essays about what it really means to be a teacher today. With his trademark wit and wisdom, Robert Wilder dissects the world’s noblest profession—whether he’s taming a classroom full of hormonal teenagers or going one-on-one with the school bully. Wilder was twenty-six when he found his true calling. Leaving a lucrative advertising career in New York, he got a job as an assistant first-grade teacher at a Santa Fe alternative school—and never looked back. Now he brings his unique perspective—as a teacher, parent, and former student—to a series of laugh-out-loud essays that show teaching at its most absurd…and most rewarding. With brutal candor he chronicles his own lively adventures in modern education, from navigating cutthroat kindergarten sign-ups to subbing for a class experi-ment gone wrong–and dares to tell about it. He shares the surprising lessons he’s learned in the trenches of his profession, including how to bribe a four-year-old (his own) to stop swearing in a Lutheran preschool and the best way to teach moody teenagers…manage “helicopter” parents…and cope with bullies—whether of the school-yard, Internet, or parental kind. And he offers tough love for cheaters who log on to www.SchoolSucks.com, then puts to rest forever the question of why new teachers gain weight (hint: the free donuts don’t help). In Tales from the Teachers’ Lounge, Robert Wilder charts life’s learning curve with a warmth and humor you don’t find in textbooks. By turns heartwarming, eye-opening, and uproariously funny, these pitch-perfect essays offer priceless lessons in life, family, learning, and teaching from a true lover of education.

The demands of teaching continue to increase teacher burnout, stress, and unhealthy classroom environments as the pressures on teachers remain consistent. Given the necessity of prepared teachers in the classroom and the need for teachers to locate available emotional resources, this study explores the features that teachers attribute to their well-being, including the factors that both promote it and inhibit it. The purpose of this study is to narrate and display the contextual stressors experienced by teachers and gain an understanding as to how it impacts their perceived well-being. The sample includes four teachers from the middle and high school level, teaching varying subjects, and with over twenty years of teaching experience. Data were collected through interviews and artifacts and later analyzed thematically within a qualitative, embedded case study. The themes that emerged includes school climate uncertainties, work/life imbalance, and governing well-being. The self-determination theory is used to understand the cause of disruptions in enhancing the motivation and performance quality of teachers through the innate needs of autonomy, relatedness, and competence. Overall, the findings of this study suggest that a teacher's well-being is influenced by the interactions between their relational, personal, and professional realms, and within those realms or systems, school-influenced stressors may either promote or inhibit their well-being, depending on how they allow it to interact with them.

Jeffrey A Kottler states that multiculturalism has become so politically correct that authentic feelings and honest opinions are reserved and limited to the teachers' lounge. What is described as sensitivity to diversity is often transformed into a degree of caution in which people no longer say what they really think. In this book, Kottler presents an honest, intimate, and provocative look at issues related to culture, and suggests ways in which teachers can make their classroom more vibrant and culturally responsive.

The Teachers’ Lounge (Uncensored) gives you a peek inside that classroom. Kelly Flynn takes readers by the hand and says, “Come inside my school, walk a mile in my halls, and then we’ll talk about education reform.” With breathtaking clarity and a healthy dose of humor Kelly Flynn shares with readers what all teachers know; that when you teach in a public school there are days that you laugh, days that you cry, and days that you laugh until you cry. Each student is surprisingly, delightfully, wildly different, which is precisely why one-size-fits-all education does not work.
