Anyone interested in mathematics teaching and learning is likely to get hooked on case discussions. Barnett, Goldenstein, and Jack...son have found that teachers gain a deeper understanding of mathematical ideas themselves in the process of examining the mathematical thinking of children. Their case discussion approach promotes dialogue between and among teachers which serves as a catalyst for changing and improving the curriculum. Case methods open a whole new way of fostering teacher learning that both draws on and informs practice. The cases-written by upper-elementary and middle school teachers about their experiences covering fractions, decimals, ratios, and percents-enhance professional development by stimulating reflection and dialogue about problems encountered in the classroom. Although the cases contain many examples of teaching that reflect the NCTM Standards, they carry no presumption that the teaching portrayed is either "good" or "bad." The accompanying Facilitator's Discussion Guide provides many practical suggestions for initiating and leading case discussion groups. read more

Karr-Morse, Robin/ Wiley, Meredith S.

This new, revised edition incorporates significant advances in neurobiological research over the past decade, and includes a new i...ntroduction by Dr. Vincent J. Felitti, a leading researcher in the field. When Ghosts from the Nursery: Tracing the Roots of Violence was published in 1997, it was lauded for providing scientific evidence that violence can originate in the womb and become entrenched in a child’s brain by preschool. The authors’ groundbreaking conclusions became even more relevant following the wave of school shootings across the nation including the tragedy at Columbine High School and the shocking subsequent shootings culminating most recently in the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Following each of these media coverage and public debate turned yet again to the usual suspects concerning the causes of violence: widespread availability of guns and lack of mental health services for late-stage treatment. Discussion of the impact of trauma on human life—especially early in life during chemical and structural formation of the brain—is missing from the equation. Karr-Morse and Wiley continue to shift the conversation among parents and policy makers toward more fundamental preventative measures against violence. read more

Laminack, Lester L./ Wadsworth, Reba M.

"We believe focused read aloud experiences with carefully selected children's literature followed by guided conversations is one w...ay you can create a climate in your classroom, school, or district where bullying is not an accepted or rewarded behavior. A climate where an individual's humanity and human dignity trump any difference(s) and kindness is the order of the day." Lester Laminack and Reba Wadsworth Bullying Hurts is not your same-old anti-bullying guide. Lester Laminack and Reba Wadsworth show how the read aloud, a familiar and proven instructional technique, can be used as a powerful way to neutralize bullying behaviors, create community in the classroom, and help you meet the Common Core State Standards at the same time. Recent research shows that punishing students who bully is not enough, that we must begin every child's education by establishing relationship skills and building empathy among students. Lester and Reba recommend a series of read aloud books that focus on our shared humanity and can be used on day one of Kindergarten and throughout the elementary years. They help you support the development of children's insight and compassion. Bullying Hurts guides students toward increased understandings about bullying behavior with a framework of five recommended read-alouds and accompanying lessons that help you: define and discuss the important lessons about bullying embedded in each book develop literacy skills and strategies, conversation, critical thinking, character analysis, and reflection connect read aloud experiences to the anchor standards for reading in the Common Core. Bullying Hurts does more than help children gain the insights and language needed to confront and neutralize the behaviors of bullies. It convinces us that by working together, we really can prevent bullying. read more

Today there is no such thing as a general education classroom - virtually every class contains learners with special needs. Accomm...odating these children with stop-gap measures takes great effort and often ends with disappointing results. The Inclusion Classroom Problem Solver is a practical guide that helps you build a permanent, inclusive classroom structure that automatically helps diverse learners without resorting to short-term fixes - even if you have no training with special needs students.   The Inclusion Classroom Problem Solver begins with the simple premise that if children don't learn the way we teach, we must learn to teach the way they learn. Constance McGrath explains how to set up a classroom environment that supports special-needs students as well as their peers, prevents behavioral problems, and improves learning for everyone. Based on observations of more than a dozen teachers across multiple districts, The Inclusion Classroom Problem Solver provides proven ways to create a classroom that replaces frustrating temporary accommodations with an inclusive, joyous environment designed to work for every student. From the smallest tasks - such as explaining assignments, arranging children's seating, and establishing classroom transitions - to big ideas, McGrath shares: organizational principles and lesson plans that work together to meet student needs curricular supports that are efficient, effective, and give students opportunities to succeed and be appropriately challenged assessment techniques, including whole-class and self-assessments, as well as guidelines on creating fair testing for all students classroom routines that promote inclusion, a positive culture, and friendships among all students experience-honed advice on working through behavioral issues, including interpreting what signal a child may be sending through undesirable behavior ideas for building and sustaining a strong special-education team methods for communicating effectively with parents.   In addition, McGrath provides a summary of the most common disabilities teachers work with. This invaluable resource provides a working definition of each condition, typical symptoms that teachers and parents might see, likely parent concerns and expectations, assignments that work well with the disability, and numerous ideas for supporting students at both the individual and whole-class levels.   Inclusion is a fact of life, but you don't have to struggle with it. Read The Inclusion Classroom Problem Solver and change your perspective. You'll not only find out how to provide diverse learners with what they need by making accommodations a part of your classroom structure, but also discover a teaching life that's less stressful and more satisfying. read more


The diverse and difficult needs of today's children far outstrip the ability of any one institution to meet them. Yet one of the r...ichest resources for understanding a child's early learning experiences-parents-is quite often the most frequently overlooked. A Path to Follow suggests that parent "stories" can be a highly effective, collaborative tool for accessing knowledge that may not be obvious, but would obviously be of benefit.Pat Edwards and her coauthors have here defined "stories" as narratives gained from open-ended conversations and/or interviews, where parents respond to questions designed to shed light on traditional and nontraditional early literacy activities in the home. After all, as a child's first and most important teacher, a parent can offer memories of specific formative interactions, observations on early learning efforts, and thoughts on how their own backgrounds have impacted a child's attitude toward school. In sharing their anecdotes and observations, parents give us the keys to unlock a vault of social, emotional, and educational variables.The secondary benefit to the story approach, of course, is the empowerment that parents feel when they are given the chance to participate in a personally meaningful way-one that respects their viewpoint. As parents and schools continue to wrestle with prodigious challenges-shifting family demographics, time constraints, cultural divides, privacy issues, and of course, economics-stories remain a nonthreatening and practical vehicle for collaboration.With its step-by-step approach to creating parent story programs, sample questions, case studies, and useful guidelines on collecting and interpreting data, A Path to Follow will be hailed as a detailed and innovative roadmap to involving the whole community in a child's education. read more

Sara’s parents will do anything to live and raise their children as Jews. In Spain during the 1490’s, that means leaving wealth, v...aluables and a comfortable life behind to set sail for the Ottoman Empire. Sara is reluctant to leave her familiar childhood home until she understands what her priorities really are. Will Sara be able to save her friend from the clutches of the Inquisition?

Visit: for more information and to sign up for the newsletter. Teaching Kids Life IS Good is what results when an experi...enced youth mentor and a distinguished elementary school teacher team up to help children dramatically enhance their character, confidence, attitude, and self esteem, by matching positive life changing affirmations with the insertion of each individual child's own self pictures to match each set of affirmations. This unique mix of carefully crafted statements and self reflective imagery creates a potent and positive boost for children to reinforce in them that life is meant to be lived positively and abundantly. For instance, if the affirmation says "I am joyful," the child or parent can attach a picture on that page of the child with a joyful expression to reinforce the affirmation. Existing pictures can be used or new pictures can be taken of your child just for this book. These affirmations are not designed to create a pompous sense of inflated self confidence, but rather a universally recognized mix of beneficial character traits and healthy outlooks about life. The science and psychology behind the book is designed to aid in the development of children's attitudes and beliefs about themselves and the world, to build a healthy sense of confidence, character, and self-esteem. Developing these traits early in life can dramatically increase your child's likelihood of growing up well adjusted for greater contentment and success. At the end of the book there are prompts based on Benjamin Franklin's daily practice of self reflection, which will help your child to consider how they might further practice these ideas in every day life. These reflection prompts are an excellent opportunity for adults and children to discuss these affirmations in action. Teaching Kids Life is Good is a great way for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, mentors or guardians to spend quality time with children doing something positive and fun that will stick with them for their entire lifetime!

Is it possible to address the individual learning needs of thirty active multiage, multiethnic elementary students - all at the time? Dorothy Peters has been doing this for almost twenty years. In Taking Cues from Kids, she demonstrates how - to twelve student teachers at New York City's Central Park East School, many of whom themselves began as skeptics. A compilation of yearlong journal exchanges between Peters and her student teachers, this unique book immerses readers in the specificities of classroom life on a day-to-day basis - the actual framework in which any teacher must make decisions. Intelligent, perceptive, constructively critical, these student teachers raise questions all educational practitioners face and their discussions cover the spectrum of issues - everything from punishment versus consequence and dealing with "difficult" children to planning and implementing integrated curriculum, fostering inquiry, assessing and tracking students' growth, and managing hands-on experiential learning. The book also provides lots of practical support: sample room layouts, suggestions for classroom provisioning, a sample record-keeping form, a planning web for integrated curriculum, a sample lesson plan, a chapter on getting started, suggested readings, and lots of photographs illustrating how hands-on learning progresses across the grades. There is something in this book for everyone. Experienced teachers will extend and deepen their understanding of child-centered practice, discovering additional techniques to add to their repertoire. New teachers will be encouraged to discover how much they already know and that moments of self-doubt and discouragement at the start of a teaching career are universal. Master teachers, mentors, and staff developers will find an effective model for coaching. read more

High-quality child care has proven effective in longitudinal studies of the subsequent intellectual, emotional, and social growth ...of children. Ben Mardell has proven this too in his unique history of children who grew up at the Oxford Street Day Care Cooperative where he was the afternoon preschool teacher. Combining compelling interviews and photos with his own research at Harvard and classroom experience, Ben has produced a book that is at once a scholarly study and one of the most visually and verbally eloquent books available about the education of young children. By looking closely at the experiences of one group in a high-quality center, he offers concrete data from children and parents about what child care entails, a model for child-care teachers for building an effective classroom, and an image of what is possible and a call to action. read more
