Dear Luisa, Jenny, another T2T Associate, thinks that the text that you are referring to is called "Children's Mathematics - Cognitively Guided Instruction" because she recognized the names of the authors that you have mentioned. If this is correct that perhaps you are looking for more information about Cognitively Guided Instruction otherwise referred to as "CGI." Jenny went on to share that CGI is an elementary curriculum in which students construct their own knowledge of mathematics while solving problems. The book discusses how children learn mathematically. If we are correct, then perhaps you will find these sites useful: Yahoo Group Discussion http://groups.yahoo.com/group/investigations-cgi Cognitively Guided Instruction Classroom http://www.ucs.mun.ca/~rosalynb/CGI.html It All Adds Up http://www.ehr.nsf.gov/ABOUT/articles/itaddsup.html Promising Practices Network Program http://www.promisingpractices.net/program.asp?programid=114&benchmarkid=6 -Suzanne A., for the T2T service
