Download and read online High Yield Routines in PDF and EPUB Today's classrooms are full of routines. Although we often think of routines as being used for organisation, routines can also be used to enhance instruction. In this book, the authors present seven easily implemented mathematical routines that may be used effectively at a variety of grade levels and with a variety of mathematical content. The book also includes ideas for infusing mathematics into the nonmathematical routines that take time away from instruction. Each chapter begins with classroom vignettes that provide a glimpse of how the routine might look as it is implemented in a variety of grade levels. A description of the routine and implementation strategies follow and the authors provide examples of student work from various grade levels for each of the routine, including examples of ways to assess student thinking by using the routines, and suggestions for adapting the routines. The book includes connections to the Common Core practice standards and focuses on creating opportunities for differentiated instruction. A highly useful book, written by seasoned mathematics educators, this book is a must-have for all elementary and middle school mathematics teachers.
