Teachers, it seems that every year brings more things taking over classroom time: more responsibilities, more “high-stakes” tests, students have more needs, etc. Therefore, it is even more important that our lessons and classroom experiences are worthwhile and effective. In order to maximize classroom time and the effectiveness of lessons, teachers should integrate math and literacy instruction. I believe integrating math and literacy is not only essential, but will make learning more meaningful to students. This blog is a resource for you, teachers, so click around and view my research, suggested strategies for implementing integrated lessons, and some literacy connections to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Enjoy!
