Practical Teaching Methods K-6 is designed primarily for K-6 teachers and administrators who wish to examine where they are and where they might go. Each chapter discusses the elements of good teaching in the content areas, providing real examples from real schools, followed by reflections and assessment tips. The format allows teachers to use single chapters to concentrate on a particular subject area, or to use the entire book as a professional development tool that can renew, re-energize, and reinvigorate teaching practices for individuals or for a school's faculty as a whole. Using national standards as a framework, the authors focus on all of the major content areas, including mathematics, science, social studies, technology, and more. They address issues such as professional growth, and the many difficulties faced daily by teachers, while focusing on instructional strengths that emerge when thoughtful and curious teachers guide attentive and curious students. Teachers now have one clear Handbook that covers virtually all the curricular areas in grades K-6.

Students pursue problems they’re curious about, not problems they’re told to solve. Creating a math classroom filled with confident problem solvers starts by introducing challenges discovered in the real world, not by presenting a sequence of prescribed problems, says Gerald Aungst. In this groundbreaking book, he offers a thoughtful approach for instilling a culture of learning in your classroom through five powerful, yet straightforward principles: Conjecture, Collaboration, Communication, Chaos, and Celebration. Aungst shows you how to Embrace collaboration and purposeful chaos to help students engage in productive struggle, using non-routine and unsolved problems Put each chapter’s principles into practice through a variety of strategies, activities, and by incorporating technology tools Introduce substantive, lasting cultural changes in your classroom through a manageable, gradual shift in processes and behaviors Five Principles of the Modern Mathematics Classroom offers new ideas for inspiring math students by building a more engaging and collaborative learning environment. "Bravo! This book brings a conceptual framework for K-12 mathematics to life. As a parent and as the executive director of Edutopia, I commend Aungst for sharing his 5 principles. This is a perfect blend of inspiring and practical. Highly recommended!" Cindy Johanson, Executive Director, Edutopia George Lucas Educational Foundation "Aungst ignites the magic of mathematics by reminding us what makes mathematicians so passionate about their subject matter. Grounded in research, his work takes us on a journey into classrooms so that we may take away tips to put into practice today." Erin Klein, Teacher, Speaker, and Author of Redesigning Learning Spaces
