Math for All Participant Book (K-2): A Resource Kit by Hal R. Melnick, Andrea Brothman, Marvin Cohen, Babette Moeller, Barbara Dubitsky, Randi Cecchine, Karen Marschke-Tobier, Linda Metnetsky (Paperback, 2013)
This program will emphasize how the neurodevelopmental demands of a math lesson interact with individual students' strengths and needs. The authors will provide step-by-step guidance for adapting materials, activities, and instructional strategies to make lessons accessible to all students. This participant book includes the handouts and reproducibles for the program. The forthcoming kit will include a facilitator's guide and a corresponding DVD.
Babette Moeller is a senior research scientist at the Center for Children and Technology of the Education Development Center. She brings more than 25 years of experience researching and developing technology-enhanced programs in mathematics and science to help ensure that students with disabilities and those from other traditionally underrepresented groups will be included in and benefit from educational reform efforts. As project director of numerous research and development projects, Moeller has had extensive experience in designing and implementing technology-supported programs in general and special education, providing professional development for teachers and administrators in a variety of settings, and conducting formative and summative evaluation research. She also has taught courses in technology integration, media research, and child development at Fordham University's Graduate School of Education and the New School for Social Research. She currently serves as adjunct faculty in the Mathematics Leadership Program at Bank Street College of Education. She holds a PhD in developmental psychology from the New School for Social Research. Dr. Barbara Dubitsky, a faculty member of the Graduate School at Bank Street College of Education, is the Director of the Mathematics Leadership Program, a program she developed in collaboration with a team of colleagues. Dr. Dubitsky has been a member of the Graduate School at Bank Street College for more than 30 years, and has worked extensively in public and private schools to help teachers build their capacity to teach mathematics. One of her major focuses is the use of technology in education, and especially how it can be used for online education. Recently she taught two short mathematics courses online. Dr. Dubitsky has worked with technology since the Bank Street College began to use computers with children in 1980, playing a key role in the Center for Children and Technology housed at Bank Street from 1980 to the early 90's. She was Chair of Computer Programs in the Graduate School. Previously, she worked for many years as a public school teacher in grades 4 through 6, and went on to become a middle school math teacher and math coordinator. Dr. Dubitsky holds an Ed.D. in Mathematics, Statistics, and Computing Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. Dr. Marvin Cohen is a Senior Faculty member (Niemeyer Chair, 2005) at Bank Street College of Education and a member of the Mathematics Leadership Program (MLP) faculty. He teaches both mathematics pedagogy and content classes and advises in the MLP. Dr Cohen, with his colleagues, helped to develop the ten video case studies that are the foundation of this Math for All curriculum, aimed at increasing access to meaningful mathematics for all children K-5. Dr Cohen was Scholar in Residence at the Ben Franklin International School in Barcelona Spain in the spring of 2010. Dr. Cohen has also been Director of Instructional Technology at Bank Street and has been director of a variety of technology-based projects that focus on building a technology-using environment at Bank Street. He has coordinated collaborations with Vanderbilt University and the University of Virginia. He was a co-designer of the Mathematics Learning Forums (Annenberg, 1994), a distance education project and was a co-founder of Bank Street's Center for Minority Achievement (a middle school reform project) and the Mathematics Leadership Program. Dr. Karen Marschke-Tobier (1942-2008), was the Director of the Early Childhood Special Education Program and a faculty member of the Graduate School at Bank Street College of Education. In addition to her appointment at Bank Street, Dr. Marschke-Tobier worked as a child therapist in private practice and served as a psychology consultant at the Corlears School for 20 years. She received her training in child psychoanalysis at the Hampstead Child Therapy Clinic in London run by Anna Freud. Dr. Marschke-Tobier a
