Editorial Reviews

Review

"A perfect resource for the standards-based mathematics classroom. Each lesson is simply designed by rich in mathematical content. The real-world connection and use of manipulatives, games, and even items from home will hook the 21st-century learner. As a teacher, I spend a considerable amount of time searching for appropriate lesson ideas. No more! This collection of lessons—across all math standards—provides me with enough resources to enhance my current teaching." (Rachel Hull, Fifth-Grade Teacher 2009-08-21)

"A very well-organized resource that will enrich any math curriculum with practical, easy-to-follow activities designed with a variety of learners in mind. I was delighted to see so many 'out of your seat' activities to keep students engaged. The best part is that the author has included quick formative assessments within each activity to check for understanding and gain perspective on each child's math ability at that moment. This is a valuable resource for developing critical thinking skills for our 21st-century learners." (Jennifer Harper, Fourth-Grade Teacher 2009-08-21)

He has made presentations to more than 100,000 educators at national conventions of educational organizations and to regional and local school districts across the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.

Dr. Sousa has a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Bridgewater State University, a Master of Arts in Teaching degree in science from Harvard University, and a doctorate from Rutgers University. His teaching experience covers all levels. He has taught senior high school science, served as a K-12 director of science, a supervisor of instruction, and a district superintendent in New Jersey schools.

Prior to his career in New Jersey, Dr. Sousa taught at the American School of Paris (France), and served for five years as a Foreign Service Officer and science advisor at the USA diplomatic missions in Geneva (Switzerland) and Vienna (Austria).

Dr. Sousa has edited science books and published dozens of articles in leading journals on staff development, science education, and educational research. His most popular books for educators, all published by Corwin Press, include: How the Brain Learns, fourth edition; How the Special Needs Brain Learns, second edition; How the Gifted Brain Learns; How the Brain Learns to Read; How the Brain Influences Behavior; and How the Brain Learns Mathematics, which was selected by the Independent Publishers’ Association as one of the best professional development books of 2008. The Leadership Brain suggests ways for educators to lead today’s schools more effectively. His books have been published in French, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic and several other languages.

Dr. Sousa is past president of Learning Forward (formerly NSCD). He has received numerous awards from professional associations, school districts, and educational foundations for his commitment to research, staff development, and science education. He recently received the Distinguished Alumni Award and an honorary doctorate from Bridgewater (Massachusetts) State University, and an honorary doctorate from Gratz College in Philadelphia.
