Using Children's Literature to Build Mathematics Literacy
In this resource, several lessons are provided for classroom teaching based on children’s literature and equitable practices. Each lesson includes a reference to a book to use for the lesson, an overview of how to implement the lesson, and supplemental material to use throughout the lesson.
Mathematics Resources for Families/Caregivers of Young Children
Providing families and caregivers with high-quality resources to support young children’s mathematical curiosity and learning away from the school environment may be useful for future learning and positive dispositions toward mathematics. This resource shares an annotated bibliography of materials.
Elementary Mathematics Vocabulary
The purpose of this toolkit is to identify key mathematical terminology coupled with activities that explore these terms. These activities can be used as a resource for parents or guardians to build mathematical vocabulary at home or as classroom vocabulary building activities.
BranchED seeks to support individual educator preparation programs (EPPs) and the field at large in reimagining and redefining “quality” preparation programs such that attention to issues of diversity and equity are explicit, embedded, and inextricably linked to high-quality performance.
The Resource Portal was created to support our community by providing resources such as instructional materials, online modules, podcasts, practice-based learning opportunities, research briefs, teaching video library, tool/toolkit, and webinars.
