"As our teaching team went through the lesson design process we were amazed at the transformation that took place. It took us out of isolated practice and placed us into a collaborative setting where we could effectively redesign lessons so that student learning was positively impacted."
"Teaching by Design in Elementary Mathematics is a wonderful tool that can easily be adopted by schools or districts looking to improve mathematics instruction and empower their teachers in the process. By providing a combination of mathematical knowledge, pedagogical strategies, and support for learning the new content and implementing it in the classroom, this volume will help groups of teachers work together to reflect on and improve their teaching of mathematics to all young children."
"Helps teachers investigate how students learn, focusing on grade-appropriate math, activities and lesson plans for teacher teams to evaluate student performance. A fine resource for improving and supplementing education."
"I strongly recommend this book for a professional development program that involves rational numbers for teachers in grades 4-5. A skilled facilitator could use the structure of this book to develop professional development in these other areas."
The book breaks down the 4-5 Common Core Standards and provide activities for teaching them! Excellent!
