You can stop looking for the next activity to engage your students, stop the hours of digging through strategies, and rest yourself for a time with this book as your guide, with Tina working right alongside you through a year of simplifying your professional life. This is quite simply the most comprehensive proficiency-based professional development materials yet produced.
Foundations is the "on-ramp" to the Stepping Stones curricular framework and materials. Its Stepping Stones pared down to its most essential highest-leverage components.
