Reviews

Nationally-known scholar Teruni Lamberg provides an update to her popular whole class discussion book. New videos and a deeper dive into formative assessment highlight this new edition as Dr. Lamberg shares research-based strategies in a framework that would benefit teachers at all levels. This book works particularly well in a book club, professional development setting or a math methods course. -- Jeff Shih, PhD, Professor of Mathematics Education, University of Nevada, Las Vegas; Board Member, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics The framework in Work Smarter, Not Harder acknowledges the complexities of teaching in practice. Both experienced and novice teachers will find a rich guide in this book to help them create classroom environments where mathematical discussions can thrive. Classroom routines and the physical environment are clearly addressed. The resource contains many specific examples, including videos, to help teachers examine their assessment and their planning practices, to ensure that they are effectively supporting children's learning of mathematics. -- Tracy Goodson-Espy, Professor of Curriculum & Instruction (Mathematics Education); Co-Director of the Middle and Secondary Graduate Certificate Program, Appalachian State University

Work Smarter, Not Harder gives the reader a framework to guide a powerful mathematics discussion. The designed framework is there to guide and empower conversations that can happen in the classroom when the educator has planned and considered the big mathematical idea within the unit, topic or lesson. Meaningful discussions help engage, build confidence and motivation in our students love for math. It is a must read! -- Channon Toles, Elementary Mathematics Instructional Coach, Washoe County School District Visiting classrooms with Dr. Lamberg gave me the opportunity to observe her research implemented in the classrooms. The framework is simple in structure, but deeply rooted in student learning. It allows students the opportunity to connect ideas, therefore increasing their depth of mathematical thinking. -- Kathy Dees, Professional Development at Clark County School District; Professional Development Coordinator, Southern Nevada, Regional Professional Development Coordinator, Las Vegas Work Smarter, Not Harder is a must-have resource for educators at all levels from pre-service to veteran. Using simple strategies presented in the book, I have seen my class move to an effective and efficient student-centered classroom. In addition to this, the students in my class now see the benefit of the concepts being presented and take ownership of their learning. -- Carrie Hair, teacher, Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching Award Winner, Nevada
