Each book in the Taking Action series offers a coherent set of professional learning experiences designed to foster teachers' understanding of the effective mathematics teaching practices and their ability to apply those practices in their own classrooms. The book examines in depth what each teaching practice would look like in a classroom, with narrative cases, classroom videos, and real student work, presenting a rich array of experiences that bring the practices to life.

Building on the framework provided in the landmark publication, Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All, the Taking Action series is for teachers who aspire to ambitious teaching that will provide each and every one of their students with more opportunities to experience mathematics as meaningful, challenging, and worthwhile. It's certain to be your number one go-to resource.
