"As educators, we all want to do our best for the kids we serve each day. As adults, we value having choices very much; however, how often do we allow our students to have choice in their educational journey? Juliani explores this notion of choice in an in-depth study of how giving students such opportunities can lead to higher levels of achievement and quality of their overall academic experience. His "10 ways" will not only transform your classroom but also change the way you feel about teaching; they're a must have for every classroom teacher!"
-Erin Klein, MACUL Michigan Teacher of the Year, ASCD Emerging Leader, and Scholastic Top Teacher
"When it comes to student choice in the classroom, AJ Juliani is both passionate and authoritative. His practical, step-by-step instructions take the often nebulous concept of choice and turn it into something actionable and manageable for classroom teachers."
-Angela Watson, Author of Unshakeable and Awakened, Founder of The Cornerstone for Teachers
Think about the best learning experiences you've ever had. Chances are you had a choice in what you were learning, and what you wanted to get out of the experience.
Yet, in our schools it is difficult to give students choice when curriculum, standards, and expectations get in the way.
This book presents 10 simple ways to transform your classroom into a student-centered experience, through choice, easy ways to differentiate, and a focus on student engagement from the start.
Each chapter covers a specific area of teaching and learning with choice:
-Choice in what we learn (content)
-Choice in how we learn (instruction)
-Choice in technology
-Choice in purpose
-Choice in pace and order
-Choice in assessment
There are many educational books out there on WHY we should be learning different and teaching different. This books focuses on the HOW. The 10 strategies start with a story, and end with a step-by-step guide on how to implement choice effectively in any classroom.
