The term has expanded to include computer literacy, digital literacy, information literacy, health literacy, etc. (Vacca, Vacca, & Mraz, 2011). Nevertheless, the most important change to the term literacy is expanding the use of reading and writing. Literacy is defined as understanding, thinking and practicing the use of language in different cultural/social settings through the use of all types of media which allows people to communicate and make meanings (Vacca et al., 2011)....   [tags: Education, mathematics]

Math Approaches: Traditional or Reform

- ... Reform Approach Many schools are changing the way math is taught. The classrooms are becoming more student-centered instead of the traditional teacher-centered classrooms. The National Mathematics Advisory Panel defined this approach as “instruction in which students are primarily doing the teaching” (National Mathematics Advisory Panel, 2008). Teachers in the reform classroom guide and support students’ mathematical ideas instead of giving them specific ways of doing math (Clements & Battista, 2009)....   [tags: advantages, disadvantages, teaching strategies]
