  1. 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. Whether you are actively engaged in implementing a Marzano Institute initiative in your school or simply need guidance when it comes to measuring student learning, this book can help. 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.

  3. A Close Look at Close Reading: Teaching Students to Analyze Complex Texts, Grades 6-12

    While middle years and secondary school teachers want and need students to connect with, analyse and learn from both literary and informational texts, many are unsure how to foster the skills students must have in order to develop deep and nuanced understanding of complicated content. Barbara Moss, Diane Lapp, Maria Grant and Kelly Johnson explain how to teach middle years and secondary school to be close readers, how to make close reading a habit of practice across the content areas and why doing so will build content knowledge. Equipping students with the tools and process of close reading sets them on the road to becoming analytical and critical thinkers - and empowered and independent learners. In this comprehensive resource, you'll find everything you need to start their journey.

  4. Write Like This: Teaching Real-World Writing Through Modeling and Mentor Texts

    In Write Like This, Gallagher emphasises real-world writing purposes, the kind of writing he wants his students to be doing twenty years from now. Each chapter focuses on a specific discourse: express and reflect, inform and explain, evaluate and judge, inquire and explore, analyse and interpret and take a stand/propose a solution. In teaching these lessons, Kelly provides mentor texts, student writing samples and numerous assignments and strategies proven to elevate student writing. By helping teachers bring effective modelling practices into their classrooms, Write Like This enables students to become better adolescent writers. More important, the practices found in this book will help our students develop the writing skills they will need to become adult writers in the real world.

  6. Worth Writing About: Exploring Memoir with Adolescents

    'Who am I?' In Worth Writing About: Exploring Memoir with Adolescents, Wizner addresses how searching for the answer to this question leads his students to reflection, to reading and to deeper, more meaningful writing. Worth Writing About addresses the most common challenges teachers face when teaching memoir writing: How do you help students who say that nothing interesting has happened in their lives? How do you help students balance what is meaningful with what is too personal to share? How do you help students overcome the 'I don't remember' syndrome? The memoir unit gets kids to write about real stuff - the things that matter to them. In the process they learn more about themselves, their relationships, the way they view the world and how they want to move forward into the future.

  7. Do I Really Have to Teach Reading?

    "Do I really have to teach reading?" This is the question many teachers of adolescents are asking, wondering how they can possibly add a new element to an already overloaded curriculum. And most are finding that the answer is yes. If they want their students to learn complex new concepts in different disciplines, they often have to help their students become better readers. Building on the experiences gained in her own English classroom as well as those of colleagues in different disciplines, Cris Tovani takes on the challenge of helping students apply reading comprehension strategies in any subject. In Do I Really Have to Teach Reading?, Cris shows how teachers can expand on their content expertise to provide instruction students need to understand specific technical and narrative texts.
