What If Your ABCs Were Your 123s?: Building Connections Between Literacy and Numeracy
Minton, Leslie
Corwin Press
Designed for the primary and elementary levels, this book helps teachers transform the way they think about and teach mathematics. While many teachers feel confident about their preparation and strategic repertoire for literacy instruction, some are less confident about their preparation and content depth for teaching math. This book makes visible the parallels between literacy and mathematics. The author illustrates how teachers can carry their literacy strengths straight into math instruction. Educators will learn to take what they already know about teaching literacy and make connections to numeracy instruction to improve their students' achievement in mathematics. Readers will gain a detailed, comprehensive understanding of the crossovers connections between literacy and numeracy, deepen their own mathematics content knowledge, and become more confident and successful in their instruction of elementary mathematics. After a Dedication, Preface and Acknowledgments, this book contains five chapters: (1) What If? (2) What Do Good Readers and Mathematicians Look Like? (3) What Does Understanding Look Like? (4) How Do Students Apply Their Understanding of Numbers? and (5) How Do Teachers Connect Ideas to Practice? This book concludes with Resources.
