Following on the heels of the bestselling Fires in the Bathroom, which brought the insights of high school students to teachers and parents, Kathleen Cushman now turns her attention to the crucial and challenging middle grades, joining forces with adolescent psychologist Laura Rogers. As teachers, counselors, and parents cope with the roller coaster of early adolescence, too few stop to ask students what they think about these critical years. Here, middle school students in grades 5 through 8 across the country and from diverse ethnic backgrounds offer insights on what it takes to make classrooms more effective and how to forge stronger relationships between young adolescents and adults. Students tackle such critical topics as social, emotional, and academic pressures; classroom behavior; organization; and preparing for high school. Cushman and Rogers help readers hear and understand the vital messages about adolescent learning that come though in what these students say. This invaluable resource provides a unique window into how middle school students think, feel, and learn, bringing their needs to the forefront of the conversation about education.

The classroom teacher in the 21st century is no longer a solo practitioner. What can school leaders use to facilitate on-going, job-embedded, intentionally focused professional development that is unique to the collective needs of teacher pairs and teams as they work together? What can teacher preparation supervisors provide to support teacher candidates and cooperating teachers as they plan, teach, and assess student learning in a co-teaching context? Supervision Modules to Support Educators in Collaborative Teaching is a research-based supervisory handbook designed to promote on-going teacher reflection and development in collaborative teaching contexts. It is a tool for school leaders and teacher preparation supervisors to use for in-service and pre-service teacher development at all grade levels PK-12. The handbook’s many resources provide practical guidance for meaningful teacher development that is field-based, relevant to daily teacher work, and artfully presented to build collaboration among teachers as they reflect and learn together. Unique to this approach is that school leaders and supervisors learn alongside teachers and teacher candidates as relevant topics are explored. The handbook contains a collection of eighteen interactive, activity-based modules that focus on topical content knowledge and productive teaching practices. Embedded in the modules are pair and team activities that address problem-solving, dimensions of collaborative teaching, communication and collaboration skill development, understanding of diversity, cultural responsiveness, and shared understanding of evidence-based practices. This resource is easy to use. Once school leaders and supervisors select a module topic to address the needs of a particular pair or team, they are supported with foundational knowledge of the most current research on the topic, discussion questions about the topic, suggestions of productive practices, questions to deepen personal and group understanding, reflective professional growth activities, critical analysis of teaching scenarios, and monitoring, follow-up, and goal setting strategies. Modules can be used in any order and include reproducible materials for pairs and teams to use as they collaborate and grow professionally.

Mathematics and Science education have both grown in fertile directions in different geographic regions. Yet, the mainstream discourse in international handbooks does not lend voice to developments in cognition, curriculum, teacher development, assessment, policy and implementation of mathematics and science in many countries. Paradoxically, in spite of advances in information technology and the “flat earth” syndrome, old distinctions and biases between different groups of researcher’s persist. In addition limited accessibility to conferences and journals also contribute to this problem. The International Sourcebooks in Mathematics and Science Education focus on underrepresented regions of the world and provides a platform for researchers to showcase their research and development in areas within mathematics and science education. The First Sourcebook on Asian Research in Mathematics Education: China, Korea, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia and India provides the first synthesized treatment of mathematics education that has both developed and is now prominently emerging in the Asian and South Asian world. The book is organized in sections coordinated by leaders in mathematics education in these countries and editorial teams for each country affiliated with them. The purpose of unique sourcebook is to both consolidate and survey the established body of research in these countries with findings that have influenced ongoing research agendas and informed practices in Europe, North America (and other countries) in addition to serving as a platform to showcase existing research that has shaped teacher education, curricula and policy in these Asian countries. The book will serve as a standard reference for mathematics education researchers, policy makers, practitioners and students both in and outside Asia, and complement the Nordic and NCTM perspectives.
