Description

Discover a clear path for improving your instructional strategies for teaching mathematics at any grade level. Designed for individuals or collaborative teams, this practical resource introduces a set of rubrics -- the Instructional Quality Assessment (IQA) Toolkit -- that readers can rely on to help guide reflections, conversations, feedback, and planning. Also included is a series of short videos that showcase how to use the book's math strategies and tools in classrooms.

Ensure the instructional quality of your teaching strategies in mathematics:

  • Utilize tasks, questions, and evidence (the TQE process) and the associated IQA rubrics as a road map for increasing instructional quality.
  • Become familiar with the connection between efficient use of tasks and teacher questioning with increased student success.
  • Learn how to gauge student response to tasks and lessons in order to understand student mastery of the material.
  • Enhance your understanding of math strategies through hands-on activities.
  • Access free online reproducibles for use in teaching mathematics in the classroom.
