Resources and Tools for Elementary Math Specialists and Teachers


Professional Development Collections support the growing needs of elementary educators. These skill and knowledge-building collections are designed around core themes and provide a set of carefully selected resources, teaching supports and a discussion area.
The resources in this collection provide teachers with strategies that can assist them in facilitating productive classroom and small group discussion. Challenges that teachers face are considered, descriptions of the teacher's role are provided, and best practices are discussed and demonstrated. The use of interesting problems and games to promote high quality communication is explored in several related resources. This collection supports the Communication Process Standard.
