This book's breakthrough approach to supervision, built on the Teaching Schema for Master Learners introduced in the ASCD best-seller Improving Student Learning One Teacher at a Time, is a simple way to help teachers make the right adjustments in curriculum, instruction, assessment, and feedback--the four areas of practice that make the most difference in how learners learn. Here you'll find clear, practical guidelines designed to complement and enhance your school's existing observation and evaluation models. Jane E. Pollock and Sharon M. Ford explain how to * Focus classroom observations and feedback on the critical classroom decisions that promote meaningful, lasting learning. * Guide teachers toward the most effective curriculum, teaching, assessment, and feedback strategies for each stage of the lesson. * Support teachers' efforts to align the plan book and the grade book for better instructional decisions and higher student achievement. Along with these research-based recommendations, the book also features the voices of working administrators who share the difference this approach has made for them, their teachers, and their students.

The most important factor affecting student learning isn't standards, textbooks, or testing--it's teachers. And when it comes to improving learning, research has shown teachers what works. But the real challenge comes when it's time to do what works and do it well. In this book, Jane E. Pollock explains how making the right adjustments in four critical areas of practice--curriculum, instruction, assessment, and feedback--can help any teacher improve student learning significantly. Here, you'll find out how to -- Create a classroom curriculum document that's truly useful and incorporates robust concepts, generalizations, and procedures. -- Plan instruction that's focused on helping students become master learners who can apply information and skills, not just do schoolwork. -- Design varied classroom assessments that yield evidence of mastery and pinpoint where further instruction is required. -- Use criterion-based feedback to improve individual student achievement and refine instruction. Along with step-by-step procedures, practical guidelines, and specific models, this book features the voices of individual teachers who share their experience using the author's "Big Four" approach. Like them, you may find it's the missing link you need to transform your pedagogy and achieve unprecedented levels of both student success and professional satisfaction.

You've heard about "flipping your classroom"—now find out how to do it! Introducing a new way to think about higher education, learning, and technology that prioritizes the benefits of the human dimension. José Bowen recognizes that technology is profoundly changing education and that if students are going to continue to pay enormous sums for campus classes, colleges will need to provide more than what can be found online and maximize "naked" face-to-face contact with faculty. Here, he illustrates how technology is most powerfully used outside the classroom, and, when used effectively, how it can ensure that students arrive to class more prepared for meaningful interaction with faculty. Bowen offers practical advice for faculty and administrators on how to engage students with new technology while restructuring classes into more active learning environments.

Teaching mathematics is one of the most difficult and important jobs that anyone can do. Mathematics is a critical part of education and an essential building block for problem solving skills that are needed in the real world. However, many students struggle to learn and understand mathematical concepts and educators need to do everything possible to help our students learn. This book focuses on four areas necessary to be an impactful teacher of mathematics: Planning, Pedagogy, Assessment, and Relationships. For each of the ideas presented in the book, a brief introduction will be shared and then two different perspectives will be detailed with examples. The first is Not like This which is often the traditional way of teaching mathematics or the less effective approach. The second perspective is Teach Like This which is my recommended approach based upon research and my own experience as a teacher, math coordinator, and graduate instructor of math education.

Research has identified the importance of helping students develop the ability to monitor their own comprehension and to make their thinking processes explicit, and indeed demonstrates that metacognitive teaching strategies greatly improve student engagement with course material. This book -- by presenting principles that teachers in higher education can put into practice in their own classrooms -- explains how to lay the ground for this engagement, and help students become self-regulated learners actively employing metacognitive and reflective strategies in their education. Key elements include embedding metacognitive instruction in the content matter; being explicit about the usefulness of metacognitive activities to provide the incentive for students to commit to the extra effort; as well as following through consistently. Recognizing that few teachers have a deep understanding of metacognition and how it functions, and still fewer have developed methods for integrating it into their curriculum, this book offers a hands-on, user-friendly guide for implementing metacognitive and reflective pedagogy in a range of disciplines. Offering seven practitioner examples from the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, the social sciences and the humanities, along with sample syllabi, course materials, and student examples, this volume offers a range of strategies for incorporating these pedagogical approaches in college classrooms, as well as theoretical rationales for the strategies presented. By providing successful models from courses in a broad spectrum of disciplines, the editors and contributors reassure readers that they need not reinvent the wheel or fear the unknown, but can instead adapt tested interventions that aid learning and have been shown to improve both instructor and student satisfaction and engagement.

Bestselling author Mike Schmoker describes a plan for radically improving student learning that is built on three core elements: a focused and coherent curriculum (what we teach); clear, prioritized lessons (how we teach); and purposeful reading and writing, or authentic literacy. With this "less is more" philosophy, educators can help students learn content at a deeper level, develop greater critical thinking skills, and discover more clearly how content-area concepts affect their lives and the world around them. Both a call to action and a blueprint for creating more effective classrooms, Focus: Elevating the Essentials for Radically Improved Student Learning will challenge your assumptions about schooling and show how educators who have embraced this approach quickly achieved spectacular results.
