Math Journals: Tools for Authentic Assessment.
This book is designed to help teachers use journals to integrate authentic assessment with the instruction of mathematics. It provides a structure to encourage students to write regularly in mathematics. The book is designed to help teachers develop their own assessment questions and activities for additional mathematical explorations. For each grade level (kindergarten through grade 5), the book includes questions for reflection and two mathematical explorations that culminate in journal writing. Concepts explored include plane figures, money, measurement, geometric solids, multiplication, and fractions. (MKR)
