  2. Teaching Minds: How Cognitive Science Can Save Our Schools

    From grade school to graduate school, from the poorest public institutions to the most affluent private ones, our educational system is failing students. In his provocative new book, cognitive scientist and bestselling author Roger Schank argues that class size, lack of parental involvement, and other commonly-cited factors have nothing to do with why students are not learning. The culprit is a system of subject-based instruction and the solution is cognitive-based learning. This groundbreaking book defines what it would mean to teach thinking. The time is now for schools to start teaching minds!

  3. Interactive Whiteboards in the Primary Classroom

    After years of helping others teach with a variety of interactive whiteboards (IWBs), Tony DeMonte found that, without a doubt, whiteboards can increase student engagement and motivation. But too often he encountered teachers who were unsure of how best to incorporate their IWBs in teaching and who ended up using them as glorified chalkboards, or worse, not at all. DeMonte wrote this book to help those educators grasp the full potential of this powerful tool. No matter what kind of IWB you have, interactive projector included, you will benefit from DeMonte’s classroom-tested insight and advice.

  4. How to Create and Use Rubrics for Formative Assessment and Grading

    In this comprehensive guide, the author identifies two essential components of effective rubrics: (1) criteria that relate to the learning (not the "tasks") students are being asked to demonstrate and (2) clear descriptions of performance across a continuum of quality. She outlines the difference between various kinds of rubrics, explains when using each type of rubric is appropriate and highlights examples from all grade levels and assorted content areas. Intended for educators who are already familiar with rubrics as well as those who are not, this book is a complete resource for writing effective rubrics and for choosing wisely from among the many rubrics that are available on the Internet and from other sources.

  6. Reflective Learning and Teaching in Primary Schools

    Trainee teachers are expected to demonstrate reflective practice in many ways throughout their course. Unlike other texts, this book takes a focused look at what primary trainees need to know and offers specific and detailed guidance on how to be meaningfully reflective in learning and teaching. Examining reflection as a tool for both teachers and children, this text considers how teachers can encourage the children they teach to be reflective in their own learning and how this can improve learning and teaching. Chapters on lesson study and reflective journals offer practical guidance, and a chapter on using children's voice as a tool for reflection explores this popular topical theme.
