Overview

Teaching Math, Science, and Technology in Schools Today: Guidelines for Engaging Both Eager and Reluctant Learners offers unique, engaging, and thought-provoking ideas. The activities open imaginative doors to learning and provide opportunities for all learners. It surveys today's most important trends and dilemmas while explaining how collaboration and critical thinking can be translated into fresh classroom practices. Questions, engagement, and curiosity are viewed as natural partners for mathematical problem solving, scientific inquiry, and learning about technology. Like the Common Core State Standards, the book builds on the social nature of learning to provide suggestions for both eager and reluctant learners. The overall goal of the book is to deepen the collective conversation, challenge thinking, and provide some up-to-date tools for teachers so they can help reverse the steady erosion of math, science, and technology understanding in the general population.

Reviews

In their newest collaboration, educational mentors Dennis Adams and Mary Hamm enthusiastically embrace the challenge of the Common Core Curriculum Standards to meet our rapidly changing world. Coupling innovative activities with differentiated instruction, Adams and Hamm have created a teacher-friendly reference that makes use of imagination, movement, sound, and humor - which are elements of creative thinking and critical in our rapidly evolving world. -- Christina Sullivan, teacher, New York Adams and Hamm focus on creativity and innovation in teaching math, science, and technology. The book points out the importance of original thinking while providing activities that help students express themselves in many ways. The book also does an excellent job of focusing and helping both eager and reluctant learners to achieve academic success. A major strength is providing methods teachers can use to make sense of the world they live in. As a teacher in the 21st century, I know that it is important that students are given the opportunity to reflect and be open to new ideas, and this book is beneficial in realizing this approach. -- Krista Harrietha, teacher, Nova Scotia As a reluctant teacher myself, when it came to teach subjects that were not my strength, I was thrilled to find a book that made me feel I could teach math, science, and technology without needing to be extremely proficient or even fascinated with the subjects. By allowing the students to show the way through collaborative work, everyone can realize they have the skill and knowledge to be the next Bill Gates or Steve Jobs. We all come to the table with something to offer. The activities offered in the second edition of Teaching Math, Science, and Technology in Schools Today: Guidelines for Engaging Both Eager and Reluctant Learners are reality-based and open-ended, allowing for wonder, exploration, and innovative solutions. Whether used directly by teachers in the classroom or as a teaching tool for professional development, both reluctant teachers and struggling students will find success and a new love of these 21st century skills by following the guidance offered within these pages. -- Margaret Losee, teacher of the deaf, York, Maine
