This second booklet of a two-part publication, designed as an in-service tool for teachers of grades K-9, concerns the teaching and curriculum aspects of problem solving. It is a digest of selected topics integral to successful problem-solving instruction. The resource is organized into independent units for individual reference or group in-service use. These units can be employed in a variety of ways. Self-contained topics may be selected as needed by teachers engaging in problem-solving instruction with their classes. Individual units may serve as the topic for in-service meetings conducted by supervisory staff. Particular units can be selected for periodic sustained study throughout the school year as a comprehensive in-service program or course on problem-solving teaching. The individual unit titles are: Introduction to Teaching Problem Solving; Research and Psychological Summaries; Looking Back Strategies; Teaching Considerations; Choosing Different Teaching Modes; Story Problems and Number Sentences; Getting Started; Primary Instruction; Intermediate and Junior High Instruction; Creating a Problem Solving Environment; Organizing the Curriculum; and Calculators in Problem Solving.
