Book Title: Implementing Standards-Based Mathematics Instruction: A Casebook for Professional Development
Publisher: Teachers College Press
Author: Mary Kay Stein
Now in its second edition, this essential textbook and professional development resource offers: a new foreword by James Hiebert and two important new chapters that focus on the ways in which the book can be used to support the learning of teachers and administrators. Drawing on the authors’ work over the past decade, Chapter 11 illustrates the various ways in which teacher educators and professional developers might use the materials in the book to aid in the professional growth of teachers, including how to directly improve teachers’ instruction practices and Chapter 12 discusses ways in which principals and school leaders can use the book to become better instructional leaders of teachers who are attempting to teach with cognitively demanding tasks.
This essential book:
- Describes the Mathematical Tasks Framework, a tool that has been proven effective in evaluating instructional decisions, the choice of materials, and learning outcomes.
- Provides narrative cases of actual classroom instruction that include Discussion Questions and Teaching Notes.
- Includes a link to a downloadable PowerPoint presentation containing an expanded overview of the research for use with teachers, parents, and other interested stakeholders.
