Content and Methods for Prekindergarten Through Grade Four
Author: Anita C. Burris
Publisher: Prentice Hall
For methods, content, or combined courses in Mathematics for Early Childhood. Believing that teachers who are comfortable with mathematics develop learners who are comfortable with mathematics, this author empowers preservice preK-4 teachers to teach math confidently by laying a solid foundation of math concepts, and building on that foundation with engaging, meaningful, standards-based teaching methods. Integrated in this unique combined approach to teaching mathematics is a thorough discussion of math manipulatives, as well as the use of technology-computer and otherwise-to assist today's mathematics teacher. Teaching strategies are grounded in the NCTM standards and illustrated with real student work. In addition, the author provides a full range of concrete developmental activities that encourage future teachers to make math make sense for themselves as well as for their students.
In this research-based book, teachers will find powerful strategies for adapting mathematical lessons and tasks to address the wide range of abilities, interests, and learning styles of the students in their classrooms. The book contains a wealth of activities tailored to its K–2 grade span. The authors provide numerous differentiated tasks ready for classroom implementation, as well as guidance in managing differentiated lessons, and strategies for providing and structuring choice within the classroom.
