Teaching Science to Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Elementary Students helps K-8 teachers implement culturally relevant instructional strategies to ensure that all students, regardless of race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic class, can do science, like science, and become scientists if they choose. In America's increasingly diverse classrooms, science is not always presented in a way that is meaningful to all students. With this in mind, this book outlines 8 culturally relevant strategies for teaching science to help ensure all students have access to inquiry-based, interactive, and experiential science learning. Written to encourage inclusive practices, the book shows how to teach science using students' experiences, how to integrate science and literacy and how to use alternative methods to assess students' understanding of science. Includes 8 culturally relevant strategies for teaching science to all students-outlines inclusive practices that ensure all students have access to inquiry-based, interactive, and experiential science learning. Emphasizes family connections and teaching science to and through students' experiences-connects science activities and content to students' lives at home and includes a chapter on fostering family connections and family connections icons throughout the book. Offers examples of science and literacy connections-models how teachers can integrate science and literacy to enhance students' understanding of science. Includes case studies with reflection questions in each chapter-provides examples of culturally relevant science teaching in the K-8 classroom for teachers to analyze and discuss.

Genre: Education

Adding It Up explores how students in pre-K through 8th grade learn mathematics and recommends how teaching, curricula, and teacher education should change to improve mathematics learning during these critical years. The committee identifies five interdependent components of mathematical proficiency and describes how students develop this proficiency. With examples and illustrations, the book presents a portrait of mathematics learning: Research findings on what children know about numbers by the time they arrive in pre-K and the implications for mathematics instruction. Details on the processes by which students acquire mathematical proficiency with whole numbers, rational numbers, and integers, as well as beginning algebra, geometry, measurement, and probability and statistics. The committee discusses what is known from research about teaching for mathematics proficiency, focusing on the interactions between teachers and students around educational materials and how teachers develop proficiency in teaching mathematics.
