A good book is a great treat at any time of the year, but over the holidays, it’s so nice to be afforded a bit of extra time to curl up with something that sparks our imagination or challenges our perspective. As you sip you holiday beverage of choice over the next couple of weeks, here are some reading selections for whetting your curiosity and creative thinking:
“Critical Maths for Innovative Societies: The Role of Metacognitive Pedagogies” (Zemira Mevarech and Bracha Kramarski – OECD Publishing)
“InvestigatingCulturally Responsive Mathematics Education” (Cynthia Nicol, Jo-ann Archibald, Jeff Baker)
“Learning from Place: A Return to Traditional Mushkegowuk Ways of Knowing” (John-Paul Restoule, Sheila Gruner, Edmund Metatawabin)
“Make Just One Change: Teach Students to AskTheir Own Questions” (Dan Rothstein and Luz Santana)
“Meeting Wise:Making the Most of Collaborative Time for Educators” (Kathryn Parker Boudett and Elizabeth A. City)

Wishing you all a relaxing and joyous holiday from the NOII!
