Teaching mathematics to a range of learners has always been challenging. With inclusion and RTI, effective teaching for struggling students is more important than ever. My Kids Can shares instructional strategies that allow struggling learners to move towards grade-level competency by making mathematical thinking explicit, linking assessment and teaching, building understanding through talk, supporting students as they take responsibility for learning, and working with special education staff. You'll also see how to use whole-group, small-group, and individual instruction.
The public wants you to teach the entire curriculum while each parent does not want you to lose the identity of the child in the process. On the side of the public are the teachers who have been trained to impart each subject. On the side of the parents are the educational psychologists who are concerned about the growth of the child's identity from the response that they receive from the student in undergoing this process.
This book is written from a principals perspective with the aid of an educational psychologist to find a workable solution that both meets the needs to apply government guidelines and preserves as well as seeks to develop the identity of the child. It does it by looking at the changing relationships between the teacher and the child as the year progresses and the child matures throughout their education. It notes in obeying the flow, how we can meet both demands.
In trying to overly assert one over the other by either focusing too much on instruction or overworking the child in assignments unrelated to his self-identity, we create counter waves that research tells us, often drowns the child through a total loss of self. This is why the book is called My name is Johny.

Making education come to life in one's classroomAs we enter the 21st century, we can no longer rely on instruction to prepare our youth for the interactive world that they will face as they graduate from our schools. No matter which field one chooses to embark, it will change and one's adaptability will be critical to retain or have the ability to change one’s position. The excuse "I am not instructed in that new skill" or "I did not see the change coming", will no longer be accepted as we will expect the student to be a dynamic thinker. This book is the manual in how to make that change within one’s classroom.
