Reform in School Mathematics and Authentic Assessment
Reform in School Mathematics and Authentic Assessment (March 1995)
Thomas A. Romberg - Editor

"This book addresses a key issue in mathematics education today. The perspective from which this text is written is one that is needed as a response to the occurring reform in mathematics education and the movement to understand learning and doing mathematics as social construction.

Becoming an Effective Classroom Manager

The author synthesizes a large body of classroom management literature into practical, workable suggestions for the classroom teacher. Often, texts on classroom management are either too much like recipe books without research to back up suggestions, or they are too theoretical without applications apparent to teachers.This text combines the two.” — Brenda H.
