Effective Teaching Strategies for Dyscalculia and Learning Difficulties in Mathematics provides an essential bridge between scientific research and practical interventions with children. It unpacks what we know about the possible cognitive causation of mathematical difficulties in order to improve teaching and therefore learning. Each chapter considers a specific domain of children’s numerical development: counting and the understanding of numbers, understanding of the base-10 system, arithmetic, word problem solving, and understanding rational numbers. The accessible guidance includes a literature review on each topic, surveying how each process develops in children, the difficulties encountered at that level by some pupils, and the intervention studies that have been published. It guides the reader step-by-step through practical guidelines of how to assess these processes and how to build an intervention to help children master them. Illustrated throughout with examples of materials used in the effective interventions described, this essential guide offers deep understanding and effective strategies for developmental and educational psychologists, special educational needs and/or disabilities coordinators, and teachers working with children experiencing mathematical difficulties.

Effective Teaching Strategies: Lessons from research and practice 7e provides a practical overview of nine common teaching strategies used in all levels of education and training from early childhood through to higher education. Initial chapters discuss the Australian Curriculum framework and provide an introduction to the key principles of quality teaching and learning. These ideas are then applied through chapters devoted to different teaching strategies: direct instruction, discussion, small-group work, cooperative learning, problem solving, student research, role-play, case study and student writing. Chapters describe each of the strategies in detail with a practical focus on why, when and how to use each one. There are guidelines for planning lessons based on each strategy, for implementing those lessons effectively and for evaluating the effectiveness of each strategy. Activities and numerous examples from a wide range of subject areas help readers to relate the ideas to their own specialist teaching areas.
From Principles of Learning to Strategies for Instruction Part One The purpose of this book is to help educators and training developers to improve the quality of their instruction. Unlike other available works, the text is not limited to a particular theoretical position. Nor is it like many of the instructional design texts, which ignore the learning literature. Rather, it draws upon any and all of those research-based principles regardless of learning theory, which suggest heuristics to guide instructional strategies. The approach of the authors is unique in that they develop a framework or model taxonomy for tasks, through which the principles of learning can be related to particular learning processes, suggesting distinctive strategies for specific instructional tasks. The authors present a four-stage model that includes acquisition, automaticity, near term transfer, and far term transfer. Workbook Companion Part Two In this Workbook Companion, the strategies presented in the original book are expanded by supplying practical and specific strategies to implement of a variety of other subject matters. These strategies are based on the needs which the authors currently see and cite in existing educational systems. Each chapter concentrates on providing recommended instructional strategies and practical exercises for a specific target group: high school age adolescents. Contributors supply strategies in the different learning domains including Cognitive, Psychomotor, Affect, and Interpersonal, and each individual is responsible for training teachers, developing and/or evaluating curricula for such training, and educating high school students through the development and implementation of curricula. Developed for both new and experienced teachers developing curricula for high-school adolescents, the goal of the Workbook Companion is to provide those in the field of education with strategies to incorporate each of the four domains into their lesson plans, regardless of subject area. Praise for From Principles of Learning to Strategies for Instruction with Workbook Companion "In 20+ years of instructional design this book is the most comprehensive attempt to smoothly connect learning theory with practice advice and also provide clear examples of completed instruction that utilized both learning theory and best practice." "I think that this book would benefit nearly everyone interested in instructional design." - Richard Clark, Professor of Educational Psychology, Director, Center for Cognitive Technology, University of Southern California
