Evidence-based best practices that improve classroom environments and assessment techniques!
If your goal is a smoother-running, participatory classroom and improved student achievement, you’ll find essential best practices in this new resource, edited by a renowned education scholar, Robert Slavin .
Dr. Robert Slavin, Professor and Chairman of the Success for All Foundation, has gathered insights and findings from 26 leading education researchers, presented in succinct chapters focused on key aspects of teaching and classroom management practice. Readers will find:
- Strategies for assessment that address formative approaches, differentiated classrooms, the role of feedback in the assessment process, adaptation for the Common Core, and more
- Proven techniques for classroom management, including immediate, positive steps that teachers can take
- User-friendly content supported by quick-read charts and graphs
Drawing from the leading international experts in the field of teaching and originally published in the journal Better: Evidence-Based Education, this is a valuable new resource for education leaders at all levels.
- Collection of practical articles on best practices in education by the premier researchers and authors in the US and UK. The existing proposal offers the benefit of many points of view (even with the best of intentions books written by one author tend to reflect a particular point of view) while the rigorous article structure and editing have kept the brevity and clarity that readers will value.
- Introduction for each volume written by a leading expert practitioner from the field. The plan is to approach national teachers of the year and other K-12 educators who have built great reputations.
- First article in each volume is by Bob Slavin to set the tone and focus of each book
- Each article includes a call-out box for “What We Know” (a summary of the main points of the article) and Further Readings
