Good Questions: Great Ways to Differentiate Mathematics Instruction. Second Edition
Small, Marian
Teachers College Press
Expanded to include connections to Common Core State Standards, as well as National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards, this critically acclaimed book will help every teacher and coach to meet the challenges of differentiating mathematics instruction in the K-8 classroom. In this bestseller, math education expert Marian Small explains two powerful and universal strategies that teachers can use across all math content: Open Questions and Parallel Tasks. Showing teachers how to get started and become expert with these strategies, Small also demonstrates more inclusive learning conversations that promote broader student participation and mathematical thinking required by CCSS. Specific strategies and examples for each grade band are organized around NCTM content strands: Number and Operations, Geometry, Measurement, Algebra, and Data Analysis and Probability. The new second edition features: (1) Icons that identify concepts outlined in the Common Core State Standards; (2) Many new examples with almost 300 questions and tasks that teachers and coaches can adopt or use as models to create their own; (3) Teaching Tips sidebars; and (4) A template at the end of each chapter to help readers build new tasks and open questions. Guidance for creating a more inclusive classroom learning community with mathematical talk that engages participants from all levels. [Foreword by Diane Heacox. For the first edition of this book, see ED512632.]
