Not all mathematics discussions are alike. It's one thing to ask students to share how they solved a problem, to get ideas out on the table so that their thinking becomes visible; but knowing what to do with students' ideas--where to go with them--can be a daunting task. Intentional Talk provides teachers with a framework for planning and facilitating purposeful mathematics discussions that enrich and deepen student learning. According to Elham Kazemi and Allison Hintz, the critical first step is to identify a discussion's goal and then understand how to structure and facilitate the conversation to meet that goal. Through detailed vignettes from both primary and upper elementary classrooms, the authors provide a window into what teachers are thinking as they lead discussions and make important pedagogical and mathematical decisions along the way. Additionally, the authors examine students' roles as both listeners and talkers and, in the process, offer a number of strategies for improving student participation and learning. A collection of planning templates included in the appendix helps teachers apply the right structure to discussions in their own classrooms. Intentional Talk provides the perfect bridge between student engagement and conceptual understanding in mathematical discussions.

Nach Ansicht Adenauers haben die meisten, speziell die (west)deutschen, Historiker in der Einschatzung der Zukunftsaussichten der Sowjetunion versagt und die Unausweichlichkeit von deren Zusammenbruch (der 1989/91 dann ja auch eintrat) verkannt. Nur wenige Historiker machten in dieser Hinsicht eine Ausnahme - und wurden nicht ernstgenommen. Daher erscheint eine nachtragliche Wieder- bzw. Erstveroffentlichung einschlagiger Beitrage sinnvoll. Ohne Anspruch auf grundsatzliche Bewaltigung aller schwierigen theoretischen Fragen, die Zukunft als Geschichte aufwirft, beschrankten sich die Vorbemerkungen auf einige Aspekte, die fuer eigene Prognosen als Teil historischer Arbeiten nuetzlich bis unerlaalich erschienen. aDiese rueckblickenden Erlauterungen und eine damit eng verbundene Lesart des Buches als eine Geschichte der eigenen Geschichtsschreibung machen den Reiz des Werkes aus.

What is FIT Teaching? What is a FIT Teacher? The Framework for Intentional and Targeted Teaching®—or FIT Teaching®—is a research-based, field-tested, and experience-honed process that captures the essentials of the best educational environments. In contrast to restrictive pedagogical prescriptions or formulas, FIT Teaching empowers teachers to adapt the most effective planning, instructional, and assessment practices to their particular context in order to move their students’ learning from where it is now to where it should be. To be a FIT Teacher is to make a heroic commitment to learning—not just to the learning of every student in the classroom, but to the professional learning necessary to grow, inspire, and lead. This book introduces the powerful FIT Teaching Tool, which harnesses the FIT Teaching approach and presents a detailed continuum of growth and leadership. It’s a close-up look at what intentional and targeting teaching is and what successful teachers do to Plan with purpose Cultivate a learning climate Instruct with intention Assess with a system Impact student learning Designed to foster discussion among educators about what they are doing in the classroom, the FIT Teaching Tool can be used by teachers for self-assessment; by teacher peers for collegial feedback in professional learning communities; by instructional coaches to focus on the skills teachers need both onstage and off; and by school leaders to highlight their teachers’ strengths and value. Join authors Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, and Stefani Arzonetti Hite for an examination of what makes great teachers great, and see how educators at all grade levels and all levels of experience are taking intentional steps toward enhanced professional practice.

Part of the authoritative four-volume reference that spans the entire field of child development and has set the standard against which all other scholarly references are compared. Updated and revised to reflect the new developments in the field, the Handbook of Child Psychology, Sixth Edition contains new chapters on such topics as spirituality, social understanding, and non-verbal communication. Volume 2: Cognition, Perception, and Language, edited by Deanna Kuhn, Columbia University, and Robert S. Siegler, Carnegie Mellon University, covers mechanisms of cognitive and perceptual development in language acquisition. It includes new chapters devoted to neural bases of cognition, motor development, grammar and langauge rules, information processing, and problem solving skills.
