Product Description

By Michaele Chappell, Christine Pateracki

Edited by Michaele F. Chappell and Tina Pateracki

Those beginning their journeys as teachers of mathematics will encounter challenges both inside and outside the classroom. These volumes have been compiled to help new teachers reach their full potential as mathematics educators, thereby improving the mathematics learning of their students. The resources in these books highlight six broad categories: professional growth, curriculum and instruction, classroom-level assessment, classroom management and organization, equity, and school and community.

The ideas and advice from experienced educators can help beginning middle school teachers create an environment in which students view mathematics as useful and exciting and become prepared for more in-depth study of mathematics in high school and beyond. The authors present suggestions and tools for planning innovative lessons that foster meaningful discourse and active learning, as well as ways to assess students beyond traditional classroom means.
