Guided Math: A Framework for Mathematics Instruction Second Edition ebookISBN: 9781642903782
This classroom-tested instructional framework provides an environment for mathematics that supports learning, fosters mathematical thinking and understanding, and meets the needs of all students. The innovative approach to mathematics instruction incorporated in this second-edition resource by Laney Sammons follows the same teaching philosophies used with guided reading. Teachers will learn how to:
- Create a classroom environment of numeracy and mathematical discourse
- Effectively utilize small- and whole-group instruction, manipulatives, math warm-ups, Math Workshop, and conferences to engage all learners in connecting mathematics to their own lives
- Incorporate ideas for using ongoing assessment to maximize the impact of your instruction and increase student learning
This K-12 resource provides in-depth, practical guidance on planning effective, small-group lessons with sample lessons for grade level bands K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12.
