teaching problems and the problems of teaching

Teaching Problems and the Problems of Teaching by Magdalene Lampert is the best book I have read about teaching math well.  Dr. Lampert was a professor at Michigan State but kept teaching in a elementary classroom.  The book contains thick descriptions of how she set up her classroom, how she encouraged kids to engage in the doing of mathematics, and even discussions that were facilitated in her classroom.  A great book for teachers looking to move away from the traditional math classroom.
