  4. Creating a Culture of Feedback

    Creating a Culture of Feedback emphasises the need for a healthy balance between grading to report individual progress and using feedback to motivate students to move forward. Authors William M. Ferriter and Paul J. Cancellieri stress that classrooms must shift their focus to prioritise effective feedback over grades. Using this concise guide, Years 3-12 teachers can help students visualise their own learning progress and take the route to success using three important questions: (1) Where am I going?

  6. Accessible Algebra: 30 Modules to Promote Algebraic Reasoning, Grades 7-10

    Accessible Algebra is for any teacher who wants to provide a rich and fulfilling experience to students as they develop new ways of thinking about algebra. Each lesson in this book identifies and addresses a focal domain and standard in algebra, then lays out the common misconceptions and challenges students may face as they work to investigate and understand problems. Anne and Steve met with and listened to students in real classrooms as the students explained what problem-solving strategies they were using. The authors focused on questions and problems that led students to a deeper understanding of algebra. They describe these classroom scenarios in each lesson and also suggest ways teachers may assign a problem or activity, include formative assessment strategies and group students.

  8. Readers Front and Centre: Helping All Students Engage with Complex Texts

    Every teacher wants and expects their students to be reading increasingly complex texts, yet sometimes the gap between our expectations and our students' abilities seems wide and deep. It's tempting to look at that gap and step in to fill it for them, but then we'd be doing most of the "heavy lifting" - the understanding, analysis and interpretation that our students should be learning for themselves. Readers Front and Centre is an attempt to help teachers help their students take on identities as learners. Filled with examples of one-on-one conferences, small groups and whole-class scenarios, this essential book provides an accessible and inspiring model of how - and why - we need to put students at the front and centre of our teaching.
