Reviews

“These materials are like Reading Strategies for math! My only complaint: Where was this when I was a classroom teacher?”

—Jennifer Serravallo, author of The Reading Strategies Book

“What a wonderful resource! Sue has written a great primer on what we need to know and be able to do in our elementary classrooms to be far more effective teachers of mathematics. What more could a teacher of K-5 math ask for?”

—Steve Leinwand, American Institutes for Research, author of Accessible Mathematics

“The pages of Math in Practice ring with a student-centered, teacher-empowering heart. Sue, as a friendly and knowledgeable mentor, models differentiated approaches for truly understanding key grade-level mathematical concepts. You then leave each section feeling empowered to do the same for students.”

—Chris Lehman, Founding Director of The Education Collaborative, coauthor of Falling in Love with Close Reading

“What a resource! The tone of each module in every grade-level book is helpful, supportive, and should make any teacher feel it was written for them. They are that helpful.”

—Francis (Skip) Fennell, L. Stanley Bowlsbey Professor of Education Emeritus, McDaniel College, Past President of NCTM
