Teaching The Best Practice Way

Comment from a reader about this book:
As a natural consequence of good teaching, Best Practice kids become powerful learners, proficient readers, writers, and thinkers. The authors also advise focused coaching when standardized test time comes around.
Most Useful Topics: The seven methods or structures include: 1) Reading as thinking; 2) Representing to learn; 3) Small-group activities; 4) Classroom workshop; 5) Authentic experiences; 6) Reflective assessment; and 7) Integrative units. They encourage more of the following in the classroom: Experiential, inductive, hands-on learning; time devoted to reading whole, real books; choice for students; attention to varying cognitive and affective styles of individual students; delivery of special help to students in regular classrooms; and reliance on teachers' descriptive evaluation of student growth, including anecdotal observations.
I will definitely order for this book!
