This bundle includes Liljedahl's bestselling anchor book Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics, Grades K-12 and his new supplement title Modifying Your Thinking Classroom for Different Settings.
Much of what happens in math classrooms today is guided by institutional norms laid down at the inception of an industrial-age model of public education. These norms have enabled a culture of teaching and learning that is often devoid of student thinking. Building Thinking Classrooms presents the results of over 15 years of research into which teaching practices are effective for getting students to think and which ones do not. This book takes you through a step-by-step approach that you can use to transform your classroom from a space where students mimic to a space where students think. But how do these practices work in a classroom with social distancing or in settings that are not always face-to-face? The follow-up supplement, Modifying Your Thinking Classroom for Different Settings, will answer those questions, and more. It walks teachers through how to adapt the 14 practices for 12 distinct settings, some of which came about as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
