For years, the teaching and learning of fractions has been associated with rote memorization. But this mechanical approach to instruction—which strips students of an ability to reason or make sense of math—has resulted in a failure of understanding. Author Monica Neagoy, drawing on decades of research studies, evidence from teacher practice, and 25 years of experience working around the world with teachers, students, and parents, addresses seven big ideas in the teaching and learning of fractions in grades 2–6. Each idea is supported by a vignette from a real classroom, common misconceptions, a thorough unpacking of productive mathematical thinking, and several multistep and thought-provoking problems for teachers to explore. She offers three fundamental reasons why it’s imperative for us to take a closer look at how we teach fractions: 1. Fractions play a key role in students’ feelings about mathematics. 2. Fractions are fundamental to school math and daily life. 3. Fractions are foundational to success in algebra. While a solid grounding in algebra is necessary for a STEM career, the worthy goal of “algebra for all” will not be possible until “fractions for all” is a reality. Unpacking Fractions provides teachers with concrete strategies for achieving that reality—in short, helping all students gain the knowledge they need to feel at ease with fractions.

With young children gaining access to a dizzying array of games, videos and other digital media, will they ever learn to read? The answer is yes – if we ensure that the media at children's fingertips is harnessed to promote the skills and knowledge that enable reading, instead of undermining them. Tap, Click, Read helps educators and parents become more successful at supporting young children's early literacy skills in the "digital wild west." With compelling text, videos, and interactive graphics, the book answers such questions as: In what ways could new technologies promote the adult-child interactions that help children develop language and literacy skills that help them become strong readers? Who are the pioneers in this field? What will it take to create a future in which parents and teachers become adept at using media to build a foundation for children's reading? Beyond traditional literacy, what are the digital competencies that today's young children will need to master in an increasingly complex and interconnected world? The authors provide findings from an ongoing examination of the app marketplace that identifies bright spots and pitfalls--a first-of-its-kind analysis, providing statistics on what kind of reading and other early learning apps are on offer in the free-for-all of the Apple app store and Google Play marketplaces. They also provide toolkits (such as e-media resource lists and community audit worksheets) for schools and community organizations to use as they foster literacy-focused relationships with parents and build high-tech learning spaces for tomorrow's readers. Rather than telling parents and teachers to push technology to the margins, Tap, Click, Read shows them how to put technology to work in serving children's needs and helping to address the crippling problem of low reading skills across the country.

Transform mathematics learning from “doing” to “thinking” American students are losing ground in the global mathematical environment. What many of them lack is numeracy—the ability to think through the math and apply it outside of the classroom. Referencing the new common core and NCTM standards, the authors outline nine critical thinking habits that foster numeracy and show you how to: Monitor and repair students’ understanding Guide students to recognize patterns Encourage questioning for understanding Develop students’ mathematics vocabulary Included are several numeracy-rich lesson plans, complete with clear directions and student handouts.
