Description

What if teachers could dramatically reduce the amount of time they
spend reviewing and correcting student work and actually see better results in
terms of student learning? That’s the goal of Glen Pearsall, who shares dozens
of classroom-tested strategies that lessen teachers’ workload while increasing
students’ class participation and improving their understanding.


Readers will learn how to



  • refine their classroom questioning
    techniques to continually check students’ progress and provide instant feedback

  • encourage students to internalise learning
    goals so they better understand what is expected of them

  • use fast, formative assessment strategies
    to check and correct during class time

  • modify traditional summative-testing
    strategies to monitor student progress in a formative way

  • speed up the correction process via
    student self-proofing, representative sampling and helpful technology tools

  • actively involve students in assessing
    their own work.


Drawing from his own experience as a teacher and coach, Pearsall
offers practical, real-world advice in the form of techniques that are both
effective and sustainable in the everyday classroom. The result is smarter
assessment – for both teachers and students.
