  • Causes & Cures in the Classroom: Getting to the Root of Academic and Behavior Problems

    Causes & Cures in the Classroom: Getting to the Root of Academic and Behavior Problems

    This resource helps you identify the causes of such problems and address them with specific and practical interventions. Drawing from academic and neurological research, Margaret Searle explains how to get at the root causes of planning and problem-solving issues; poor memory and organization skills; irresponsible and unmotivated behaviours; problems with focusing attention; and weak impulse control and self-monitoring. A five-step protocol leads you from observed problem to root causes with intervention plans that will work. Case studies walk you through the protocol in a variety of content areas and grade levels, so you see exactly how this process works in contexts that are real and relevant to every educator.

  • Grading and Learning: Practices That Support Student Achievement

    Grading and Learning: Practices That Support Student Achievement

    Author Susan M. Brookhart provides a relatable, relevant resource to improve F-12 assessment and reporting processes and support all students' motivation to learn. Following two straightforward principles: (1) grades should reflect student achievement of intended learning outcomes and (2) grading policies should support and motivate student effort and learning. The premise of this book is the implicit promise or commitment teachers make to their students: in my class, in this school, all students can learn. Students won't all learn the same things at the same level of proficiency or in the same amount of time, but if students are in school, they are there to learn something.
