Blogstitute Week 6: Math Tools in Action

August 1st, 2012

Continuing our week of sneak previews, today’s clip is from Chris Confer and Marco Ramirez’s new video series Math Tools in Action. Math Tools in Action set includes three DVDs: Anchor Charts, Journals, and Manipulatives — three of the most effective tools for helping teachers implement the Common Core Standards while encouraging students to become critical mathematical thinkers.

This video series is still in production and will be available late fall 2012. But if you order now during this last week of the Blogstitute and use code BLOG, you can receive 20% off and free shipping!

Coming up on Friday: a sneak peek of Debbie Diller’s new math work stations video. Stay tuned!

    I enjoyed seeing the literacy integration into math, as well as the scaffolding such as the oral rehearsal for the math journals.

    This would be a great video for teacher ed in general as there is a lot to highlight beyond the mathematics content (classroom management, interaction, scaffolding…).

    In addition to focusing on the importance of math vocabulary and writing, I also appreciate the way Mr. Ramirez uses math talk with the kids during the lesson. This reinforces thinking and ideas he has touched upon while giving all kids an opportunity to share their thinking. Sharing with one or two other students gives kids who may be shy or second language learners a chance to practice and extend their understanding without the higher risk of the whole group sharing. It also allows time to process before writing. Great clip.
