"Math Workshop in Action shows how teachers can engage students in mathematics in a meaningful, rich way. The book provides practical guidance in initiating, supporting, and sustaining a true math workshop in the classroom where content and pedagogy are valued by all, success is fostered, and individual needs are met. At the end of each chapter, guiding questions offer opportunities for reflection and planing next steps. These questions are an invaluable tool for teachers and administrators embarking on or expanding their journey in utilizing the workshop model."
