Book Description

Discover how to improve classroom instruction with vignette analysis, an engaging and relevant form of professional development. The book features a wide variety of vignettes—from across 6-12 content areas such as English language arts, math, science, and social studies—designed to help teachers spot practices they like (or don’t like) and help them to connect the teaching practices described to well-established and research-supported frameworks. Each vignette is followed by an analysis of the lesson, which includes questions, prompts, and ideas of how to continue the conversation for pre- and in-service teachers as well as teacher educators on an individual basis, small groups, or as a class.
