  5. Total Participation Techniques: Making Every Student an Active Learner

The authors, Pérsida Himmele and William Himmele, explain both the why and the how of Total Participation Techniques (TPTs) as they explore the high cost of student disengagement, place TPTs in the context of higher-order thinking and formative assessment, and demonstrate how to create a “TPT-conducive classroom.”
