How to Develop Confident and Successful Learners
This book gives you advice and steps to get your students to do the cognitive work of learning. Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey explain why telling students things over and over and perhaps more slowly and more loudly does not result in understanding. Instead, discover how to use a combination of questions, prompts, cues, direct explanations and modelling to guide students learning and build their understanding. Explore an approach to instruction that ensures you make the four strategic moves that help students become more capable and independent learners. Each element is explained and illustrated with numerous examples drawn from the authors experience as well as relevant research.
