#MTBoS Challenge: Professional Books


This summer I was excited to read more professional math books.  However, the summer went by too quickly and I was only able to get through four books.  The key is to begin implementing some of these great ideas!

1. Teach Like a Pirate by Dave Burgess is a great resource for hooks and different methods of engaging the students.

2. Powerful Problem Solving by Max Ray offers a lot of advice on how to help students become better problem solvers.

3. Implementing the Common Core State Standards through Mathematical Problem Solving (Grades 6 – 8) by Theresa Gurl, Alice Artzt, and Alan Sultan provides activities for each math standard for students to improve their problem solving skills.

4.  5 Practices for Orchestrating Productive Mathematics Discussions by Margaret S. Smith and Mary Kay Stein gives useful strategies on how to promote good student discussions.
