Styles and Strategies for Teaching Middle School Mathematics: 21 Techniques for Differentiating Instruction and Assessment
Edward J. Thomas,
John R. Brunsting
with an Introduction
by Dr. Harvey F. Silver
One key to raising achievement in mathematics is to recognize that all students have preferred styles of thinking and learning. By rotating the teaching strategies they use, teachers can reach learners through their preferred styles, as well as challenge students to think in other styles. This book provides a set of powerful research-based strategies to help middle school teachers differentiate mathematics instruction and assessment according to their students' mathematical learning styles.
Presenting four distinct mathematical learning styles-Mastery, Understanding, Self-Expressive, and Interpersonal-this book offers effective strategies that
can be mixed and matched to reach all learners. Compatible with any curriculum or textbook, the book:
The Math Learning Style Inventory (MLSI)
• an interactive student’s introduction to learning styles in math
• a self-scoring 88-item instrument
• a visual representation of the student’s learning profile
• a reflection activity that helps students maximize learning assets and minimize weaknesses Use the MLSI to build individual and classroom profiles, and bring your math instruction to the next level now.
