Editorial Reviews

Review

"In today’s educational environment, there is a tremendous push to incorporate writing in all content areas, including mathematics. This book does an excellent job of presenting unique ideas and techniques to help teachers develop students’ writing skills within a mathematics classroom.  The authors present these ideas in such a way that they become a part of the mathematics instruction." (Sarah Lamb, Math Teacher 2006-01-26)

"The strategies in Write for Mathematics helped my math students to not only write about mathematics but also to think about mathematics." (Lynda Ann DeLuca, Teacher and Math Coach 2006-01-26)

"The integration of writing and mathematics is powerful instruction. This book provides ready-to-use strategies that will result in effective math instruction, and more important, students will enjoy math class again. This is an outstanding resource." (Natalie R. Scavone, New Visions Teacher Education Preparation Instructor 2006-02-07)

"The blend of writing examples and emphasis on thought ensures that students receive an excellent link between concept and written word." (California Bookwatch, November 2006 2006-12-14)

About the Author

Andrew S. Rothstein has had a distinguished career as a teacher, administrator, and researcher. His diverse and enriching experiences in international schools, special education, public schools, and consulting have given him a broad perspective of the contexts in which children learn. As an author and presenter, he has achieved wide acclaim for his work in improving school performance by focusing on improving instruction and its supervision. His work in integrating many subject areas through writing has been highly effective in improving test scores in districts across the country. As principal, Rothstein led site-based improvements that resulted in strong increases in student academic performance. While superintendent of a regional school serving children with severe physical disabilities and health impairments, Rothstein reorganized staff development, created new curricula, and integrated technology into the instructional program for children for children from prekindergarten through high school. He has been an adjunct professor at Southern Connecticut State University and Touro College. Rothstein earned a master's degree in special education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a doctorate in educational administration from New York University.

Evelyn Rothstein has been an educational consultant specializing in teaching writing across the curriculum for the past twenty years. With a background in classroom teaching and a specialization in linguistics and language development, she has trained teachers and implemented her strategy-based Writing As Learning and Write for Mathematics programs in hundreds of schools and school districts throughout the United States. She is the author of numerous books and articles, including Writing as Learning and Write for Mathematics. Rothstein is a graduate of the City University of New York and Teachers College, Columbia University with degrees in education, speech, reading, and psycholinguistics.

Dr. Gerald Lauber, currently Chief Operating Officer of the National Urban Alliance previously served as superintendent in three New York State school districts, where he initiated programs to meet the needs of diverse student populations while stabilizing long-range fiscal plans.

As President and CEO of Purewater Sciences and Melric Technologies he developed a corporate perspective on what schools must provide to prepare children for success in the workplace and the world in which they live. Dr. Lauber's writings have appeared in Electronic School, THE Journal, American School Boards Journal , New York Slate Education, Viewpoints, Newsday and other publications.

Format: Paperback
If students are invited to write about math, their own skills levels improves: that's the message in WRITE FOR MATHEMATICS, SECOND EDITION which offers writing strategies students can use to better understand math concepts. Ten writing strategies are accompanied by teacher directions for incorporating them into curriculum and studies, applications which coincide with NCTM standards, and a number of reproducible templates. The blend of writing examples and emphasis on thought assures students receive an excellent link between concept and written word.
