Making Math Stick
This remarkable book shows teachers how to stop working harder and start working smarter. It describes a shift from “teach-test-move-on” to “teach-connect-apply” to optimize student learning. This valuable resource provides teachers with an understanding of simple, manageable, and sustainable strategies to change their approach immediately. These strategies build on helping students retain math concepts so they can apply them in novel situations down the road. The focus is on supporting teachers in framing instruction so that students strengthen their understanding, and can remember and apply learning. Making Math Stick is a game-changer that champions durable learning for all students.

Teaching Inside a Mandated Program
"This thesis examines the impact of mandated literacy practices on teaching and student learning. The methodology employed was qualitative teacher research and data was collected over ten months. A research journal was used to record and reflect on data on a daily basis. The recurring themes within the journal were Reading Levels, Running Records and Guided Reading. The data was analyzed through a Foucauldian lens and also through the lens of reading theory (Direct Instruction and Whole Language). The discursive practices within reading instruction were shown to have a significant impact on students‟ perceptions of reading and learning. The research also illustrated the effect that mandated reading programs have on the decision-making ability of the teacher and the student." -- from abstract.
