Book Description

This book offers easy-to-use classroom strategies for middle and high school English and Social Studies classrooms. They demonstrate how teaching, learning, and assessment are inseparable and seamless. Each strategy will engage your students in activity and reflection, consuming little class time, costing nothing, and uniting the three dimensions of education through reflective practice.

The chapters begin with a reflective teaching strategy, followed by classroom examples. Guiding icons will help you coordinate and implement each strategy. Chapters conclude with a set of learning community discussion questions to guide personal growth as well as faculty discussions.
