    Product Description

    By Ilana Horn 

    Classes that work together succeed together—and isn’t that every teacher’s goal?

    • Effectively use group work to create a learning environment in the secondary mathematics classroom
    • Learn how students experience learning mathematics in collaborative settings
    • Develop tasks, concepts, strategies, and tools that create successful group work and reach students of all abilities

    • Written by a seasoned teacher, researcher and teacher educator with over two decades of teaching experience, the goal of this book is to support teachers in developing tools for effective group work in their secondary mathematics classrooms. Effective group work engages children’s own thinking and allows them to work together to understand a concept. It can also address problems that often arise in typical mathematics instruction by providing a framework for teachers to create engaging learning environments. The book outlines ways to choose tasks, help students adjust to new ways of approaching schoolwork, and discusses the types of status problems that can impede the most earnest attempts at collaborative learning. This practical, useful book introduces tested tools and concepts for creating equitable collaborative learning environments that supports all students and develops confidence in their mathematical ability.
