  1. Smart Starters

    A Smart Starter changes "extra" moments in a classroom setting into teachable moments. They are designed to take short amounts of time. However, Smart Starters are NOT short on substance. The Smart Starters in this series are packed full of important skills to practise and polish or to reinforce and extend. As their name suggests, they are good for igniting learning. Instead of the slow move into a class period, lesson or school day, a Smart Starter quick-starts the action. Each one warms up the brain with a sparkling challenge. Students also need this kind of spark at times other than the beginning of the day or class period. Use a Smart Starter any time there is a lull, or any time students need a break from a longer activity.

  3. 'Why Won't You Just Tell Us the Answer?'' Teaching Historical Thinking in Grades 7-12

    Over the last fifteen years, Bruce has refined a method of teaching history that mirrors the process used by historians, where students are taught to ask questions of evidence and develop historical explanations. And now in his new book "Why Won't You Just Tell Us the Answer?" he shows teachers how to successfully implement his methods in the classroom. Each chapter focuses on a key concept in understanding history and then offers a sample unit on how the concept can be taught. By the end of the book, teachers will have learned how to teach history via a lens of interpretive questions and interrogative evidence that allows both student and teacher to develop evidence-based answers to history's greatest questions.

  11. Differentiated Activities and Assessments Across the Australian Curriculum

    A significant advantage of working with the Australian Curriculum is the ability to modify existing content descriptions for broader curriculum application. Because they lend themselves so readily to differentiation, Australian Curriculum content descriptions can lead beyond lower-level test-prep answers to higher-level thinking and mastery of 21st century skills. Carolyn Coil's practical examples show educators how to use differentiated curriculum, instruction and assessment to promote individual student achievement. Within this framework, this book addresses over 50 topics in the Australian Curriculum learning areas of English, Mathematics, Humanities, Social Sciences and Science.
