Building a Math-Positive Culture: How to Support Great Math Teaching in Your School (ASCD Arias)
Seeley, Cathy L.
Cathy L. Seeley, former president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, turns the spotlight on administrative leaders who are seeking to improve their math programs, offering an overview of what an effective program looks like and examples of actions to take to achieve that goal. "Building a Math-Positive Culture" addresses the following topics: (1) The three components necessary for a successful math program; (2) How to recognize, support, and evaluate effective teachers; (3) Steps to take to move from grand ideas to concrete results; and (4) How to approach obstacles to achieving your goal. Along with the companion book for teachers "Making Sense of Math," this book is an essential tool for leaders facing the critical task of revising their math program to develop flexible mathematical thinkers able to meet the demands of the 21st century. [For companion book, "Making Sense of Math: How to Help Every Student become a Mathematical Thinker and Problem Solver (ASCD Arias)," by Cathy L. Seeley, see ED565473.]
