Revamp mindsets and accelerate student achievement through a four-step instructional cycle. In Teaching With the Instructional Cha-Chas: Four Steps to Make Learning Stick, authors LeAnn Nickelsen and Melissa Dickson merge neuroscience, formative assessment and differentiation strategies to help F–8 teachers plan and instruct any subject effectively. The four steps – (1) chunk, (2) chew, (3) check and (4) change – show teachers how to break content into brain-friendly pieces, engage students as they process their learning, evaluate where students are in mastering the content, and differentiate instruction based on formative assessment results.

With this book, readers will:

  • learn what neuroscience says about memory and discover how it can transform instruction
  • combine brain science with the formative assessment process and differentiation to maximise student learning
  • pre-expose, prime, preassess and activate prior knowledge so daily learning targets and formative assessments enable each student to master content
  • gain easy-to-implement daily instructional strategies
  • acquire helpful lesson-planning templates to effectively frame instruction.
