Hands-on, Practical Guidance for Educators

From math, literacy, equity, multilingual learners, and SEL, to assessment, school counseling, and education leadership, our books are research-based and authored by experts on topics most relevant to what educators are facing today.

 

Teaching by Design in Elementary Mathematics, Grades 2–3

Strengthen your mathematics lessons through collaborative planning

Teaching by Design in Elementary Mathematics is a series of comprehensive professional development guides that helps teachers investigate how students learn. Grounded in the latest research, each book's grade-appropriate number and operations topics are aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The program culminates in the co-creation and implementation of a prototype lesson as a group. Through the process, teachers develop:

  • Deeper content knowledge of important mathematical concepts
  • Improved understanding of how students learn these mathematical ideas
  • A stronger foundation for developing effective lessons
  • Enhanced collaboration skills

Description

Strengthen your mathematics lessons through collaborative planning

Teaching by Design in Elementary Mathematics is a series of comprehensive professional development guides that help teachers investigate how students learn. Grounded in the latest research, this book is one of three volumes focused on grade-appropriate number and operations topics aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The capstone activity of each book guides the group through the co-creation and implementation of a prototype lesson. The teacher teams then evaluate the impact of the lesson on student learning and work together to revise it for maximum effectiveness. Through the process, teachers develop:

  • Deeper content knowledge of important mathematical concepts
  • Improved understanding of how students learn these mathematical ideas
  • A stronger foundation for developing effective lessons and improving instruction
  • Enhanced collaboration skills

Each volume includes a large assortment of reproducible handouts as well as built-in facilitation notes. Teachers will also find helpful resources that address the issue of finding time for school-based professional development and teacher collaboration.


Key features

(1) Designed to enhance teacher content knowledge as well as understanding of how students learn mathematical ideas.

(2) Congruent with the current knowledge base on effective professional development.

(3) Developing a prototype lesson – the capstone activity of the program -- provides teaching teams with insights about teaching and learning that can be applied to the development and delivery of future lessons

(4) Address the content topics in number and operations identified for each grade by the NCTM Curriculum Focal Points

(5) Each volume includes a large assortment of reproducible handouts as well as built-in facilitation notes.
