The best thing about the Teacher Talk tapes is that, after viewing them, the teachers feel like they can go right back into class and teach like they did when they first started.

One of our teachers even tried the raisin box lesson, costume and all. The kids were really excited about it and even though they had a lot of fun, they never lost sight of the math they were learning.

We found lots of ideas in the tapes that we use in our classrooms. Every lesson is like an adventure! And cost-wise, these exercises were extremely effective and fit very well into our district standards. The teachers thought that anybody could do these exercises. This is very important.

In our district we know what a struggle it can be to formulate study activities that achieve both the cost and educational standards we strive to meet. The Teacher Talk series invigorated a lot of people here. Afterwards, everybody ends up saying the same thing: I wish I had a math teacher like that when I was a kid!

Testimonials

HIGH SCHOOL MATH TEACHER

This stuff makes lessons exciting so they are not just about numbers or just about manipulation, they’re in context. And it doesn’t take a lot of context to get kids excited about doing the other stuff. This makes them want to do it! HIGH SCHOOL MATH TEACHER

A. H. Math Resource Teacher

The response to Teacher Talk was very enthusiastic. Our teachers checked out all of the copies within twenty-four hours after the viewing!

The Teacher Talk materials also gave us some great ideas for teaching in teams of four: language arts, social studies, science and math teachers. After seeing the lesson our science teachers said, that’s the way to pull the language arts into our study plans.
