Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Field Experience Guide is for field experiences, practicums, and/or student teaching experiences at the elementary and middle school levels. This guide contains three parts. Part I, Menu of Field Experiences, provides tasks for preservice teachers to do in the field. Part II, Resources for Teaching, provides three types of activities: Expanded Lessons, Mathematics Activities, and Balanced Assessment Tasks. Part III, Black Line Masters, features reproducibles, along with suggestions regarding the use and construction of many of these materials.


Every chapter in Part I includes field-based tasks that align to the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) standards; National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards; and the textbook Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally Seventh Edition by John A. Van de Walle, Karen S. Karp, and Jennifer M. Bay-Williams. For example, Chapter 6, "Teaching Mathematics Equitably to All Children," includes a menu of field experiences that provide evidence that you can meet the needs of diverse learners. New rubrics are provided in each chapter to help you and your professor assess your progress on the topic of that particular chapter.


Part II features fully updated, reformatted, and revised Expanded Lessons. Increased attention is given to assessment and to questioning in these new lessons. In addition to these 25 effective lessons, Part II has a collection of problem-based tasks that can be developed into engaging lessons. Finally, three balanced assessment tasks are provided, which can be used as a lesson or an assessment of student learning. The lessons and activities in Part II can be used to complete the field experiences in Part I.


Enjoy this collection of experiences as they support you in your journey towards being an effective teacher of mathematics.

This was for a college class. Didn't like the content and HATED the class. But it was required and was a great value for a college book. Was in good condition-SOME writing in it.

Jennifer M. Bay-Williams was born in Nashville, Tennessee, but grew up mostly in Silver Spring, Maryland and Columbia, Missouri. Her love of children and of mathematics led to a dual major at DePauw University (Greencastle, IN) in mathematics and secondary education. She became a middle school teacher, teaching in Columbia, St. Louis, and Lima, Peru before deciding to pursue her Ph.D. at the University of Missouri. She has since continued to teach and offer professional development through her positions at the University of Missouri, Kansas State University, and the University of Louisville. She has emerged as a leader in mathematics education, serving in various leadership roles including: TODOS: Mathematics for All Board of Directors, President of the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE), and editor of the NCTM 2012 Yearbook. She has continued to write articles and book chapters, in addition to the many books - all designed to support teachers in their efforts to provide a quality mathematics experience for their students. She is a blessed mother of a 10-year old daughter and 7-year-old son and wife of a teacher and author.
