He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. With colleagues, he has completed one of the largest studies of its kind about how state, district and school-level leadership influences student learning.

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. How do teachers successfully bridge the chasm between large numbers of very specific educational standards and deep understanding of important ideas? This well-researched text is based on the collaborative work between researchers and school practitioners to help answer this fundamental question. The authors have drawn from the most up-to-date research to help teachers, curriculum developers, and school leaders discover how to implement and promote learner-centred, quality teaching strategies that encourage students understanding. Organized in five parts, this text systematically uncovers how to: o Advance student learning using leading-edge research on powerful forms of instruction o Foster metacognition in students and encourage them to take control of their own learning o Extend learning from academic thinking to real-world application across all disciplines o Learn how to instil a culture of deep understanding among students while still meeting specific achievement standards found in most district and state curricula This timely and accessible resource reveals how rethinking school curriculum and teaching for deeper knowledge transfer can help students take control of their own learning.
