  1. Standards-Based Social Studies: Graphic Organisers, Rubrics & Writing Prompts for Middle Years Students

    When students are meaningfully involved in active learning tasks and in the planning and evaluation of their work, they are more enthusiastic about instructional activities, they learn and retain more, and their overall rate of achievement is greater. Graphic organisers, rubrics and writing prompts are tools teachers use to encourage such involvement from their students. The standards based graphic organisers in this book have been designed to provide busy teachers with a bank of resources from which to draw as the need arises. National standards developed by the Council of Social Studies have been incorporated throughout all activities.

  7. Brain Matters: Translating Research into Classroom Practice (2nd Edition)

    This book explains the science behind brain anatomy and physiology, bringing the biology of the brain into context with teaching and learning. Wolfe describes how the brain encodes, manipulates and stores information, and she proposes implications that research has for practice–why meaning is essential for attention, how emotion can enhance or impede learning and how different types of rehearsal are necessary for different types of learning. She also introduces and examines practical classroom applications and brain compatible teaching strategies that take advantage of simulations, projects, problem-based learning, graphic organisers, active engagement and mnemonics. These strategies are accompanied by actual classroom scenarios that help teachers connect theory with practice.
