Genre: Education

Making Number Talks Matter is about the myriad decisions facing teachers as they make this fifteen-minute daily routine a vibrant and vital part of their mathematics instruction. Throughout the book, Cathy Humphreys and Ruth Parker offer practical ideas for using Number Talks to help students learn to reason numerically and build a solid foundation for the study of mathematics. This book will be an invaluable resource whether you are already using Number Talks or not; whether you are an elementary, middle school, high school, or college teacher; or even if you are a parent wanting to support your child with mathematics. Using insight gained from many years of doing Number Talks with students of all ages, Cathy and Ruth address questions to ask during Number Talks, teacher moves that turn the thinking over to students, the mathematics behind the various strategies, and ways to overcome bumps in the road. If you've been looking for ways to transform your mathematics classroom--to bring sense-making and divergent thinking to the foreground, to bring the Standards for Mathematical Practice to life, and to bring joy back into your instruction--this book is for you.

The purpose of this descriptive case study was to examine the effects of using Number Talks in order to increase student number sense and overall mathematics achievement in a fourth grade classroom. The sample included 56 students from two fourth grade classroom. The sample included 56 students from two fourth grade classrooms at Peralta Elementary School, in the Jurupa Unified School District. For nine weeks in the second trimester, an experimental group participated in a Number Talk at least three days a week in addition to their regular mathematics instruction. The control group in this study only received their regular mathematics instruction. Both groups participated in a mathematical survey and were given an initial baseline assessment, weekly progress monitoring assessments and a final baseline assessment at the conclusion of the study. After completing the research study, comparison data showed that Number Talks was an instrumental tool that helped to increase number sense and overall mathematical achievement in the experimental group.

Studies show that short, 5- to 15-minute math activities at the beginning of class significantly increase student performance, class participation and overall number sense. This book offers teachers a go-to resource for these "number talks" with tons of ready-to-use activities that teachers can implement immediately.

The Implementation Process and Impact of a Six week Number Talk Intervention with Sixth grade Middle School Students in a Large Urban School District

Genre:

This study employed a mixed-methods design to examine the implementation process and impact of a six-week number talk intervention during the advisory period with sixth-grade middle school students in a large urban school district. The sample consisted of 22 students in one sixth-grade advisory class. The quantitative portion of the study utilized a one-group pretest and posttest design to measure the effects of the intervention on the development of students number sense. The qualitative portion of the study, which included classroom videos, student work, and a teacher journal, examined process data on the implementation of number talks to determine in what ways number talks can be implemented with middle school students to support the development of number sense. There were three teacher practices identified as being important in implementing number talks in a way that supported student learning: 1) examining students' written work during and after the number talks as a means of formative assessment, 2) using visual representations to support students' understanding of mathematical concepts and relationships, and 3) focusing on one mathematical idea for a set of number talks. Results of the quantitative analysis showed that there were statistically significant increases in the overall mean score on the number sense assessment and the mean score on the equivalent expressions subtest of the assessment which was closely aligned to the content of the intervention.

Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Armut und Chaos, Resignation und Gewalt, Drogen und Alkohol: In diesem Teufelskreis befinden sich viele weiße Arbeiterfamilien in den USA – entfremdet von der politischen Führung, abgehängt vom Rest der Gesellschaft und damit anfällig für die einfachen Lösungen von Populisten. Früher konnten sich die „Hillbillys“, die weißen Fabrikarbeiter etwa aus Ohio oder Kentucky, erhoffen, kraft ihrer Arbeit zu bescheidenem Wohlstand zu kommen. Doch spätestens gegen Ende des 20sten Jahrhunderts zog der Niedergang der alten Industrien auch die Arbeiterfamilien in eine Abwärtsspirale, aus der die meisten bis heute keinen Ausweg finden. J. D. Vance ist es anhand der Geschichte seiner Familie wie keinem anderen gelungen, diese ausweglose Situation und die Krise einer ganzen Gesellschaft eindrücklich zu schildern. Sein Buch bewegte Millionen von Lesern in den USA und erklärt nicht zuletzt den Wahltriumph eines Donald Trump.

5 Dinge, die im Leben wirklich zählen. Was zählt am Ende wirklich? Auf dem Sterbebett, wenn klar wird, dass das Leben sich dem Ende zuneigt? Nach vielen Reisen durch die ganze Welt, auf der Suche nach dem, was dem Leben Sinn gibt, findet die Australierin Bronnie Ware eine neue Aufgabe. Sie begleitet Sterbende in den letzten Wochen ihres Lebens. In ihrem Buch erzählt sie von wunderbaren Begegnungen und berührenden Gesprächen, die ihr Leben tiefgreifend verändert haben. Die Menschen, die sie trifft, stellen viel zu oft fest, dass sie ihre eigenen Wünsche hinten angestellt und zu viel gearbeitet haben, dass sie sich zu wenig Zeit für Familie und Freunde genommen und – vor allem – sich nicht erlaubt haben, glücklich zu sein. Es sind Erkenntnisse, die nachdenklich machen und in Erinnerung rufen, worauf es wirklich ankommt, wenn wir mit einem Lächeln aus dem Leben treten wollen. Für sich selbst hat Bronnie Ware nach diesen Erfahrungen entschieden, dass sie nur noch das macht, was sie wirklich will. Ihr ermutigendes Buch hat die Kraft, Veränderungen anzustoßen, um wirklich das Leben zu führen, das wir wollen.
