Remijan, Kelly W. – Mathematics Teacher, 2019
Just as steam was found to be a source of power during the Industrial Revolution, increasing factory production and improving transportation, today STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) can be found to be a framework that empowers teachers, increases student engagement, and improves student understanding. Although a…

Lee, Mi Yeon; Francis, Dionne Cross – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019
Children's literature can provide useful contexts for teaching mathematics. In this article, the authors discuss the use of the children's book "Measuring Penny" (Leedy 1997) to support Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010) related to length measurement. The authors first describe three types of misconceptions…

Bertolone-Smith, Claudia M.; Gillette-Koyen, Linda – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019
The first author's initial attempts at a whole-class mathematics discussion were woefully dysfunctional. Ten second graders showing their answers to a missing addend question about the number of children left riding a school bus did not result in the mathematical epiphany that the textbook promised. She did not give up on using mathematical…

Rumsey, Chepina; Guarino, Jody; Gildea, Rachael; Cho, Christina Y.; Lockhart, Bethany – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019
Early career K-grade 2 teachers in a yearlong project explored discourse and mathematical argumentation through monthly professional development (PD) sessions. The goal of the project was to develop an understanding of the types of K-grade 2 tasks that promote argumentation, the types of discourse and argumentation that K-grade 2 students engage…

Wood, Marcy B.; Sheldon, James; Felton-Koestler, Mathew D.; Oslund, Joy; Parks, Amy Noelle; Crespo, Sandra; Featherstone, Helen – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019
Thinking about students in terms of participation instead of "high" or "low" achievers is more than replacing one term with another; it encourages us to shift our focus to student activity as well as barriers to and supports for productive activity. It encourages us to create classroom spaces that draw on student strengths and…

Zhao, Manqian; Lapuk, Karen – Mathematics Teacher, 2019
According to the National Center for Education Statistics (2016), the number of public school students in the United States who were English learners (ELs) was estimated at 4.5 million. However, in 2005, the national standardized testing scores (Fry 2007) show that about 51 percent of eighth-grade EL students were behind other students in reading…

Buchheister, Kelley; Jackson, Christa; Taylor, Cynthia E. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2019
With an increased focus on using social discourse to enhance students' mathematical thinking and reasoning (NCTM 2014, Staples and King 2017), teachers are looking for discussion strategies that encourage middlelevel students to make sense of mathematical concepts. However, structuring these valuable discussions is complex. Teachers must carefully…
