The examples and suggestions are plentiful and yet they are also small enough tweaks to a teacher's instruction that one can choose what one thinks will work best in his/her class. They are also things that can be implemented next-day and one at a time. I cannot say I have successfully used all of the ideas yet, but since they are all separate, it is easy to pick one and try it without feeling overwhelmed. This book even includes a short explanation of how to write quality, manageable lesson plans.
The specificity, along with the fact that this book is short, sweet, and to the point, is what makes this book stand out. It bridges the gap between the classes I took in college, many of which were either overly generalized in an effort to handle ALL secondary subjects, or too focused on specific aspects of the math curriculum and how to best explain them to young learners. Not that those classes didn't serve a purpose, but like I say, they left a gap that this book fills.
Although I have already used many of the ideas, I feel that I didn't use them properly. I have gained so much insight from this book. The ideas on how to develop real-life problems through questioning are eye opening. I was also marveled by how the author's greatest focus was on connecting math with literacy and using relevant context to engage and maintain student interest.
However, don't be fooled! These strategies are not only for elementary teachers, but for ALL teachers of mathematics. I have read many books on the teaching of mathematics, and this book certainly ranks among my "top 5". If you lead math teachers or are a mathematics teacher yourself, this should definitely be on your reading list.
