“It is our goal to support teachers to focus on what really matters as they work with children,” Hansen said. “The resources help teachers provide the right kind of instruction at the right time to keep each child learning and build towards future school and life success.

Hansen, together with her co-author Jenny Lerner, wrote the book based on the Head Start Child Outcomes Framework, Teaching Strategies Gold and national and state school standards.

The interviews and the instructional activities are specifically designed to enhance any research-based curriculum as it helps teachers to integrate strong concept development and quality feedback into a responsive learning environment.

It includes six informal interviews that address critical numeracy components for school readiness and meeting age level benchmarks based on current research on counting and cardinality.

The authors split each Math Path into tasks so that all or part of the interview can be given at one time.

Each of the tools reads like a casual conversation that occurs naturally during a part of a normal school day. Buy it on Amazon.
