9780131195011: Becoming a Better Teacher: Eight Innovations that Work

This is a brief book that explores eight, worthwhile, research-based classroom innovations that foster student-centered classroom environments worth implementing into today's school settings. Each of the eight innovations—essential questions, curriculum integration, standards-based curriculum and assessment design, authentic assessment, scoring rubrics, portfolios reflection, and action research— is justified through detailed explanation, ways to implement it into the classroom, and how to adapt the strategy to meet the needs of diverse classroom environments. Readers will find balanced examples from every grade level, in addition to curriculum design modules, and easy-to-use templates for applying the innovations and strategies into the classroom immediately. For educators, instructors, counselors, and academic evaluators.
