Math has its own specialized language. Mathematicians write in symbols, read patterns, and think in terms of visual or abstract ideas. With a disciplinary literacy approach, math teachers can focus on teaching their specialized content by showing students the literacies that truly support mathematical thinking – so students can read, write, think, investigate, and communicate as mathematicians.

This On-Your-Feet Guide will help teachers:

  • Plan instruction that engages students’ natural inquiry and curiosity;
  • Apprentice students toward deeper understanding of mathematical concepts, terms, symbols, and patterns;
  • Help students use their new learning to create, communicate, and act as mathematicians;
  • Teach skills required by mathematical standards and frameworks; and
  • Start working with colleagues to design instructional units that incorporate both mathematics and literacy skills.

On-Your-Feet Guides (OYFGs) provide you with the ultimate “cheat sheet” to implement effective change in your classroom while in the moment of teaching. Designed for accessibility, and providing step-by-step guidance, the OYFGs are written by experts who take research-based practices and make them doable for the busy teacher. 

Each On-Your-Feet Guide is laminated, 8.5”x11” tri-fold (6 pages), and 3-hole punched.

Use the On-Your-Feet Guides

  • When you know the “what” but need help with the “how”
  • As a quick reference to support a practice you learned in a PD workshop or book
  • To learn how to implement foundational practices
  • When you want to help your students learn a specific strategy, routine, or approach, but aren’t sure how to do it yourself
