Product Description

By Gwendolyn Zimmermann, Patricia Guinee, Linda Fulmore, Elizabeth Murray

The demands of teaching can be overwhelming, especially for those just starting out in the teaching profession. The complexities of balancing the need to teach for depth of mathematical understanding while dealing with the pressure of preparing students for high-stakes testing can be challenging and frustrating. The teaching community recognizes the importance of mentoring and how it can give teachers the support and encouragement they need not only to survive the challenges of teaching mathematics but also to develop as dedicated professionals.

This book is an informative and practical resource in which mentors and mentees share their experiences and advice with those who plan to mentor other mathematics teachers. The book serves as a "how to" for individuals who participate in formal or informal mentor training or serve as instructional coach, peer coach, lead teacher, collaborative peer, department chair, administrator, critical friend, team leader, university supervisor or department or grade-level colleague. This volume challenges the reader to think differently about what being a mentor means.

Disrupting Tradition: Research and Practice Pathways in Mathematics Education
What happens when you form partnerships among researchers and mathematics education professionals?

This book offers insights into, and examples of, the role that research plays in supporting and improving school mathematics while raising valuable questions for the education community. What forms have research and practice activities taken? What lessons have been learned from collaborations? This volume examines both of these questions to illustrate where strategic partnerships have linked research findings to the design of practice and programmatic endeavors, and to generate evidence to guide both educational decision making and routine modifications related to school mathematics.
