eric.ed.gov har udgivet: “Children’s Choices,” a project of a joint committee supported by the International Reading Association (IRA) and the Children’s Book Council, is published annually in “The Reading Teacher.” Books recommended by children are grouped by levels: Beginning Reader (ages 5-7); Young Readers (ages 8-10); and Advanced Readers (ages 11-13). Books listed at the Beginning Reader level and Young Reader level of “Children’s Choices” from 1996 through 2006 were analyzed for support of specific curriculum areas. Books related to language arts, math, social studies, and science were categorized and listed according to Louisiana content standards for prekindergarten, kindergarten, first, second, and third grade. The resulting categorized, annotated book list reflects content areas and standards, and each annotation reflects age range as indicated in “Children’s Choices.” Early childhood teachers will… Continue Reading →

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: This teacher’s guide is intended for use in helping Kodak Corporation employees develop the basic mathematics skills required to perform the manufacturing and quality control tasks expected of them. The following topics are covered in the first five modules: the four basic functions (adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing), calculations involving decimals, percentages, positive and negative numbers, and fractions. The sixth module reviews the topics covered in the preceding modules and helps students transfer the mathematics skills presented to applications on the shop floor. Each module includes some or all of the following: the module goal, an introduction, materials and guidelines for direct instruction, activities for use in guided practice, materials for use in applied practice, activities to develop critical thinking strategies, and a pretest and posttest. Transparency… Continue Reading →

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: This guide is a collection of ideas for mathematics activities which were assembled and tested by primary teachers. Activities are correlated to a mathematics curriculum for ages 7-9 years. The activities supplement the teaching of basic numeracy and include topics such as the language of mathematics, matching numbers, tracing the numbers, number bonds, number rhymes, number patterns, measurement, weight, money, shapes, and time. Each section of the core curriculum outline is accompanied by one or more activities. Worksheets for each activity are also provided. (DDR) Link til kilde

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: The purpose of this study was to measure the effects of tutoring low achievers on the concepts of carrying and borrowing before they were introduced in the classroom. Twelve low-achieving second-grade students were tutored on these concepts. The tutored children, along with members of two control groups, participated in a pretest covering these ideas. After the two-week tutoring period, members of all three groups participated in a mock classroom. The pre-remediated children performed significantly better than control group members on both types of problems (p less than .01), as well as in classroom participation (p less than .05).

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: This study used a multiple-baseline-across-subjects design to assess the effectiveness of a peer tutoring intervention for fluency in basic math facts. Specifically, this study assessed the rate of recall of multiplication facts throughout the intervention period and determined whether the progress was matched by improvement in actual classwork. In addition, maintenance of gains in fluency and classwork were assessed. The students targeted were fourth- and fifth-graders (n=8) selected from a combined classroom in an Appalachian elementary school. Children with mild disabilities were included in this classroom. Teacher recommendations along with a multiplication facts probe were used to select tutors and tutees. Baseline data were collected from tutees before intervention occurred. Tutors were trained by the experimenter (3 sessions), then were assigned a tutee. Peer tutoring sessions occurred… Continue Reading →

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: This collection of activities demonstrates how the study of elementary mathematics can be extended beyond the school and involve teachers and students in investigative, problem-based experiences. The activities include topics in geometry, concept of number, algebra, measurement, graphing, statistics, and probability, and are organized into five different math trails. With this method of organization, up to 100 elementary students can participate in the activities on the same day. Each math trail has 10 activities and each activity utilizes the particular attributes of the section of the mall in which it is situated. Students collect the necessary data at the mall and then complete the activities upon returning to their classrooms by interpreting the data and applying their previous learning and understanding in mathematics to solve a real-life… Continue Reading →

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: This curriculum material is designed to be used effectively in any adult literacy and basic education program to develop numeracy skills in learners with an interest in cars. This flexible course consists of six units. It can be taught as a short course, units can be taught individually, and units can be taught in any sequence. Each unit is divided into two sessions, each taking approximately 2 hours. Each unit includes an overview of the unit and the sessions, a list of the materials required for each session, activities, and handouts. Activities contain two different types of information: notes for the teacher and suggestions of what the teacher could say to the learner. At the end of each session, learners are asked to spend a few minutes… Continue Reading →
