The most important factor affecting learners isn't standards, textbooks or testing, it's teachers. Research has shown teachers what works. But the real challenge comes when it's time to do what works and do it well. In this book, Jane E Pollock shows how making the right adjustments in four critical areas of practice - curriculum, instructional planning and delivery, assessment, and record keeping and reporting - can help any teacher improve student learning. Along with step-by-step procedures, practical guidelines and models, this book features accounts of using the author's 'Big Four' approach to achieve unprecedented levels of student success and professional satisfaction.
