To be honest, I am less interested in the abstract (mindset, attitude, etc.) and more in the actual good teaching that makes an impact. Thank you nonetheless - I will check it.

It is quite unsettling that EY and primary do not have the same level of engagement with research, that I haven't heard of great conferences related to these age groups, or books that are highly recommended. Particularly because they lay the foundation of future achievement.

Is there any conference on mathematics in the *primary*? Or any good books?

*New Post* "The glorification of struggle is being taken to the extreme in education, and is often used to rationalize poor, ineffective teaching. Worse yet, teachers are now actively discouraged from clearly modeling and engaging in guided practice."

"Should teachers know the basic science of how children learn?" A typically thoughtful and helpful answer to the question from in the AFT's "American Educator" magazine: (spoiler alert: the answer is "Yes, but...")

Exactly. While the Chinese compete ruthlessly, copy ideas from Silicon Valey and from each other, and thus will thrive in the near future...

Thank you. I know your excellent work from your blog and did not really question the evidence behind the theoretical model. I was just interested in its practical applications. ( Note - I ordered the book)

I've seen 's Dual Coding With Teachers being highly recommended. However, no tweet explicitly showed how it would be practical for teachers or what they can implement in the classroom. Any ideas?

You can also read a blog post I wrote a few years ago on approaching mathematics

I will blog about it when I finish the report cards. But basically: 1. INTERLEAVED practice (daily, 10 min, no grading) 2. FADING examples 3. Work on VISUAL representations before moving onto symbolic notation. 4. Consistent student self-reflection

When a student with diagnosed dyscalculia, attention deficit, and extreme anxiety issues writes this on their math notebook you can say you did your job. A 5th-grade student who could barely multiply 3 x 7 in September now aces algebraic expressions.
