Summary

A thinking student is an engaged student

Teachers often find it difficult to implement lessons that help students go beyond rote memorization and repetitive calculations. In fact, institutional norms and habits that permeate all classrooms can actually be enabling "non-thinking" student behavior. Sparked by observing teachers struggle to implement rich mathematics tasks to engage students in deep thinking, Peter Liljedahl has translated his 15 years of research into this practical guide on how to move toward a thinking classroom. Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics, Grades K-12 helps teachers implement 14 optimal practices for thinking that create an ideal setting for deep mathematics learning to occur. This guide:

  • Provides the what, why, and how of each practice and answers teachers’ most frequently asked questions
  • Includes firsthand accounts of how these practices foster thinking through teacher and student interviews and student work samples
  • Offers a plethora of macro moves, micro moves, and rich tasks to get started
  • Organizes the 14 practices into four toolkits that can be implemented in order and built on throughout the year

When combined, these unique research-based practices create the optimal conditions for learner-centered, student-owned deep mathematical thinking and learning, and have the power to transform mathematics classrooms like never before.

best teacher resource!

His researched based information will change your classroom and you as an educator. Even if you don't teach math this book should be in every teacher's hands!

This is THE handbook for math educators

I have a background in engineering, but I've spent half of my career as a math teacher in public education. When I first went into teaching, I had the grand intention of writing a book called re-engineering the math classroom. And, while I did come up with a number of innovative ideas over the years, I was never really sure of how my ideas would work in other classrooms. In this book, the ideas put forward are perfectly in line with my idea for reengineering the math classroom. However, the author actually took the time to try these ideas in hundreds of classrooms to test to see how well they worked. Whether you are a new teacher or an old teacher like me, you need to read this book and you should join the community of teachers that are talking about this book on facebook.

Absolutely Amazing!

This audio book has made me (a 16 year veteran math teacher) rethink my classroom! I have known that tasks are good and I wanted my students to think. However, I didn't realize how much of what I do in my classroom might hinder thinking. I love that this book is research based! The n-size is not substantial. However, if they found a strategy worked in one class, they would replicate that same strategy in a different school/grade to see if the results were substantial. I binged listened to this book because I kept wanting to hear more! I am so excited to use these strategies in my classroom this year!
