  1. NOW Classrooms, Grades 9-12: Lessons for Enhancing Teaching and Learning Through Technology

    In NOW Classrooms, Grades 9-12: Lessons for Enhancing Teaching and Learning Through Technology, the authors stress that real transformational school change focuses on robust teaching and learning, not the ever-evolving devices that may enhance that change. This book presents practical, classroom tested lessons that Years 9-12 teachers and instructional coaches can use to prime students to actively learn and solve real-world problems. Sets of topical lessons progressively increase in depth and complexity for readers to choose from based on students' needs. Using these lessons, grounded in the vital four C skills (communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity), teachers can connect technology to key content-area outcomes and prepare students to succeed in the 21st century.

  4. Common Core Standards in Diverse Classrooms: Essential Practices for Developing Academic Language and Disciplinary Literacy

    The Common Core State Standards require students to do more with knowledge and language than ever before. Rather than be mere consumers of knowledge, students must now become creators, critics, and communicators of ideas across disciplines. Yet in order to take on these new and exciting roles, many students need daily teaching with an extra emphasis on accelerating their academic communication skills. Common Core Standards in Diverse Classrooms is a concise guide for helping us improve our practices to strengthen two vital pillars that support student learning: academic language and disciplinary literacy.

  5. Proficiency Scales for English and Mathematics Standards

    Because the generic form of a proficiency scale is comparable across teachers, topics, subject areas and year levels, it allows teachers to compile summative scores for specific topics and increases the reliability of test design and scoring.

Designed to supplement your existing practice, it contains over 110 proficiency scales that will bring new rigour and focus to your teaching and assessment practice, as well as aid in creating unique proficiency scales for the Australian Curriculum.
