  6. Using Understanding by Design in the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Classroom

    How can today’s teachers, whose classrooms are more culturally and linguistically diverse than ever before, ensure that their students achieve at high levels? How can they design units and lessons that support English language learners in language development and content learning - simultaneously? Authors Amy Heineke and Jay McTighe provide the answers by adding a lens on language to the widely used Understanding by Design® framework (UbD® framework) for curriculum design, which emphasises teaching for understanding, not rote memorisation. Student profiles, real-life classroom scenarios, and sample units and lessons combined with findings from an extensive research base provide compelling examples of how teachers across contexts use the UbD framework in their diverse classrooms.

  7. Teaching Students to Become Self-Determined Learners

    Children are born learning machines who want to learn and can organise and manage their own learning. Unfortunately, today children have little choice over what they do in school and how and when they do it. Children prepared in this ‘other-determined’ manner will be poorly equipped to navigate an adult world requiring that they act autonomously and self-direct learning to acquire skills in rapidly changing environments. In Teaching students to become self-determined learners, Michael Wehmeyer and Yong Zhao explore the how and why of self-determined learning - which emphasises autonomy and choice, turning over ownership for learning to students by supporting them in engaging in activities that are of personal value to them, thus enabling them to act volitionally.

  10. From Behaving to Belonging: The Inclusive Art of Supporting Students Who Challenge Us

    Challenging behaviour is one of the most significant issues educators face. Though it may seem radical to use words like love, compassion and heart when we talk about behaviour and discipline, the compassionate and heartfelt words, actions and strategies teachers employ in the classroom directly shape who students are and will become. But how can teaching from the heart translate into effective supports and practices for students who exhibit challenging behaviour? Julie Causton and Kate MacLeod detail how teachers can shift from a ‘behaviour management’ mindset (that punishes students for ‘bad’ behaviour or rewards students for ‘good’ or ‘compliant’ behaviour) to an approach that supports all students - even the most challenging ones - with kindness, creativity, acceptance and love.

  11. The Assistant Principal 50: Critical Questions for Meaningful Leadership and Professional Growth

    You’re an assistant principal. Whatever your status - the sole AP in your school, one of two or more APs in your school, career AP, an AP aspiring to the principalship - yours is one of the most misunderstood and underutilised positions in education. Positioned between teachers and the principal, you are an instructional leader. However, you are not the leader of the school. Therefore, you must carefully navigate your way to ensure that you thrive in your role without ‘stepping on the toes’ of your principal. In The assistant principal 50, award-winning, four-time principal Baruti Kafele presents reflective questions that encompass the breadth and depth of the assistant principalship - from finding your leadership ‘lane’ to thriving and being an asset to your principal.

  12. Developing Growth Mindsets: Principles and Practices for Maximizing Students’ Potential

    Human beings have tremendous potential to acquire new knowledge, develop new skills and improve their brains throughout life. By explicitly teaching learners about brain plasticity and malleable intelligence (the idea that they can become functionally smarter through effort) and by modelling and teaching specific learning strategies, teachers can help students experience higher levels of success as they develop a growth mindset. Donna Wilson and Marcus Conyers share strategies and techniques for developing growth mindsets based on their BrainSMART® program for bridging the science of learning to the practice of teaching and elaborate on their seven principles for developing and sustaining growth mindsets.
