lesson studyTHAT NEW BOOK SMELL…NEW HOLDINGS AT FALVEY

Interested in new teaching methods? Take a look at a new book in our collection, Lesson Study: A Japanese approach to improving mathematics teaching and learning. The Teachers College at Columbia University describes lesson study as “a popular professional development approach in Japan whereby teachers collaborate to study content, instruction, and how students solve problems and reach for understanding in order to improve elementary mathematics instruction and learning in the classroom.”


QUOTE OF THE DAY
For his part, every beauty of art or nature made him thankful as well as happy, and that the pleasure to be had in listening to fine music, as in looking at the stars in the sky, or at a beautiful landscape or picture, was a benefit for which we might thank Heaven as sincerely as for any other worldly blessing.” – Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray


HAVE A GREAT DAY!

If you have ideas for inclusion in The 8:30 or to Library News in general, you’re invited to send them to joanne.quinn@villanova.edu.
