Your single-best way to nurture higher-order thinking

With all the pressure to accelerate instruction, how can we possibly find the time to encourage students to do some serious thinking? With Facilitating Authentic Learning, Laura Thomas provides the answer: through constructivist, experiential teaching methods. Grade 6–12 teachers will learn how to:

  • Plan learning experiences that teach content and process at the same time
  • Assess students′ development of 21st-century skills
  • Coach students to do the hard work of authentic learning while providing support
  • Teach reflection techniques that help students learn from experiences and mistakes

Review:

"This is a valuable book for educators. We strive to help our students move from being receivers of knowledge to seekers of knowledge. Teachers need to develop better strategies to be effective guides for our students, and to facilitate their progress toward educational goals."-- (07/23/2012)

"Facilitating Authentic Learning, Grades 6-12: A Framework for Student-Driven Instruction is an excellent resource for any educator wishing for more student ownership of learning. It provides the research and resources for making this transition as painless as possible!"-- (07/23/2012)

"I LOVE this book! This book should be required reading for all current teachers and pre-service teachers as well. It provides step-by-step instructions for making a classroom student-centered and led by a guide-on-the-side, not a sage-on-the-stage. The author's real world example and reader friendly writing style make this book a winner!"-- (07/23/2012)
