I teach grade 8 math in Ontario and although the title is "Secondary Mathematics" there is almost equal weight given to grade 7 and 8 level material.
Not only is the theory sound, but the authors have compiled many many sample problems that are ready to use with a class. They are even organized by the strands used in the Ontario curriculum.
This will certainly be a part of my teaching this year and in the future.

I will admit to a slight bias - I met one of the authors, Amy Lin because she worked at my school board and she suggested I buy this book. It is money well spent. I really like that there are many many practical suggestions and example questions that you can use in the classroom right away.
The questions are divided by strand, and there are enough that you could use them weekly through an entire year.
I wish that the grade level was indicated in the title. Half of the content is geared towards grades 6-8 (and many of the lower grade questions would be good for high school classes too)
There are two types of activities "open questions" that let students participate in a mathematical discussion at multiple levels, and "parallel tasks" that give student choice, but achieve the same big picture understandings. The authors even included scaffolding questions or prompting questions to help re-start a discussion that has stalled or help a student get started.
Finally, there is a clear index organized by topic that lets you flip straight to the page that has the questions you need for today's lesson.
