“Teaching thinking is the most important thing schools can do right now – not what to think or even how to think but to think before declaring what is right or wrong, true or false. In this book, Kelemanik and Lucenta what thinking can look like in math classrooms, how it can be taught and how it can be learned.” - Magdalene Lampert, Professor, University of Michigan, School of Education

Grace Kelemanik and Amy Lucenta draw on their years of experience in the classroom and as instructional coaches to examine how educators can make use of routines to make three fundamental shifts in teaching practice. This sample from Chapter 2 explores the power of reasoning routines for developing mathematical thinking and teaching practices. You’ll read more about:

  • What reasoning routines are
  • How reasoning routines can create a math thinking learning environment
  • The five essential strategies
  • And how to reflect on your reading
