Math & Literacy

Pat and I have the pleasure of kicking off a blog tour on October 3rd for a new math book from Stenhouse Publishers – Math Exchanges by Kassia Omohundro Wedekind. You may be wondering why we are reviewing a book on math here at Catching Readers. Well, Math Exchanges stands on the shoulders of great literacy thinkers such as Regie Routman, Lucy Calkins and Debbie Miller as the author shows us how conversation through the workshop approach in math is as powerful for teaching and learning with young mathematicians as it is for young readers and writers.  If you are anxious to start implementing powerful small group instruction through a Math Workshop, Math Exchanges is now available and can be previewed on the Stenhouse website. Kassia also has a blog where you can read more of her great math thinking.  Check back on October 3rd as we launch the blog tour!
