ab: Publisherâ€™s description: Engaging students in worthwhile learning
requires more than a knowledge of underlying principles of good
teaching. It demands considerable practice as well as images of what
good teaching in particular situations and for particular purposes
might look like. This volume provides these images. These cases were
written from authentic, unrehearsed lessons taught by upper-elementary
classroom teachers to diverse groups of real students in intact
classrooms. Each lesson contains elements of sound instructional
practice from which both preservice and in-service teachers can
benefit. Cases are not meant to be ideal, but rather to evoke ways of
seeing and thinking about good classroom instruction for all learners.
Accompanied by analytic commentaries from experts representing a
particular perspective, such as special education and ESOL, these
unrehearsed cases are written with the understanding that teaching is
complex and multi-dimensional. The cases are drawn from a four-year
study of 4th and 5th grade mathematics instruction of culturally
diverse classrooms with relatively high rates of students from
low-income families.
