Do Counting Books Count for Much? Evaluating and Integrating Picture Books for Math Instruction

Description: Join us to learn a simple rubric for evaluating picture books that can be used in mathematics instruction. The rubric emphasizes accuracy, visual and verbal appeal, connections, audience, and the “wow” factor. You’ll practice with the rubric by evaluating  a collection of 100+ picture books. You'll walk away with more than 20 literacy-based mathematics activities and an annotated bibliography of high-quality children’s literature with mathematical content.

The math-positive support of teachers can foster an optimistic math attitude in students—an outcome with long-lasting implications for learning mathematics to a high level.
