The book provides new ideas, proven processes, practical tools, and examples useful to educators who want to encourage students to solve problems and express themselves in imaginative ways.

"This book focuses on how elementary teachers might plan for and incorporate digitally-supported disciplinary literacy into English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies to reach all learners. To do so, the authors present the six-phase Planning Elementary Digitally-Supported Literacy (PEDDL) Framework, along with four core practices useful for considering elementary disciplinary literacy. After grounding disciplinary literacy in elementary grades, how it might support all learners, and the rationale for its inclusion in K-5 instruction, core practices are presented, along with a rationale behind those practices. Then, the authors provide an in-depth overview of the PEDDL Framework with examples and research-based underpinnings of each phase. Finally, a paired chapter approach then guides readers through each of the four core disciplines to first overview practices particular to each discipline that are appropriate for elementary grades and then provide detailed lesson planning approaches using the PEDDL Framework for each. Supplementary lesson plan examples are also offered in this book for extended consideration of digitally-supported disciplinary literacy across K-5"--

To help students communicate their mathematical thinking, many teachers have created classrooms where math talk has become a successful and joyful instructional practice. Building on that success, the ideas in Why Write in Math Class? help students construct, explore, represent, refine, connect, and reflect on mathematical ideas. Writing also provides teachers with a window into each student's thinking and informs instructional decisions. Focusing on five types of writing in math (exploratory, explanatory, argumentative, creative, and reflective), Why Write in Math Class? offers a variety of ways to integrate writing into the math class. The ideas in this book will help you make connections to what you already know about the teaching of writing within literacy instruction and build on what you've learned about the development of classroom communities that support math talk. The authors offer practical advice about how to support writing in math, as well as many specific examples of writing prompts and tasks that require high-cognitive demand. Extensive stories and samples of student work from K-5 classrooms give a vision of how writing in math class can successfully unfold.
