Seven Essential Elements to Unleash Student Potential
Every day, teachers and administrators tirelessly work to fulfil their most significant duty: to ensure students learn. In Unstoppable Learning, authors Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey uncover systems thinking as the key to improving teaching and learning schoolwide. Systems thinking – which involves distinguishing patterns and relationships and thinking through short- and long-term consequences – is critical to creating clear learning targets, preparing and delivering effective lessons, and successfully assessing instruction. To be systems thinkers, educators must understand the big picture of education and the intricate relationships that affect teaching and learning. The Unstoppable Learning model contains seven essential elements of teaching and learning to create a network of interactions that helps teachers and students reach new understandings.
