📝Essential Questions Book Synopsis : What are "essential questions," and how do they differ from other kinds of questions? What's so great about them? Why should you design and use essential questions in your classroom? Essential questions (EQs) help target standards as you organize curriculum content into coherent units that yield focused and thoughtful learning. In the classroom, EQs are used to stimulate students' discussions and promote a deeper understanding of the content. Whether you are an Understanding by Design (UbD) devotee or are searching for ways to address standards--local or Common Core State Standards--in an engaging way, Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins provide practical guidance on how to design, initiate, and embed inquiry-based teaching and learning in your classroom. Offering dozens of examples, the authors explore the usefulness of EQs in all K-12 content areas, including skill-based areas such as math, PE, language instruction, and arts education. As an important element of their backward design approach to designing curriculum, instruction, and assessment, the authors *Give a comprehensive explanation of why EQs are so important; *Explore seven defining characteristics of EQs; *Distinguish between topical and overarching questions and their uses; *Outline the rationale for using EQs as the focal point in creating units of study; and *Show how to create effective EQs, working from sources including standards, desired understandings, and student misconceptions. Using essential questions can be challenging--for both teachers and students--and this book provides guidance through practical and proven processes, as well as suggested "response strategies" to encourage student engagement. Finally, you will learn how to create a culture of inquiry so that all members of the educational community--students, teachers, and administrators--benefit from the increased rigor and deepened understanding that emerge when essential questions become a guiding force for learners of all ages.

📝The Perfect Assessment System Book Synopsis : It’s time to move our assessment practices from the 1950s to the century we’re living in. It’s time to invest in our teachers and local school leaders instead of in more tests. It’s time to help all students understand how to unleash their strengths and gain a sense of themselves as learners capable of choosing their own paths to success. In The Perfect Assessment System, Rick Stiggins calls for the ground-up redevelopment of assessment in U.S. education. Speaking from more than 40 years of experience in the field—and speaking for all learners who hope to succeed, the teachers who want them to succeed, and the local school leaders whose aspirations for success have been thwarted by assessment traditions—Stiggins maps out the adjustments in practice and culture necessary to generate both accurate accountability data and the specific evidence of individual mastery that will support sound instructional decision making and better learning in the classroom. He addresses ▪ Assessment purpose—how (and why) to clarify the reason for every assessment and the users it will serve. ▪ Learning targets to be assessed—how to make sure we focus on the right competencies and set consistent definitions of success. ▪ Assessment quality—how to ensure every assessment, at every level, is an excellent one. ▪ Communication of assessment results—how to share information in ways that best support diverse purposes. ▪ Assessment impact—how to link assessment to truly productive, universal student motivation. We have not yet begun to explore assessment’s true potential to enhance both school quality and student well-being. Stiggins kicks off this critical conversation and charts a course for a new system that promises much higher levels of student success at a fraction of our current testing costs. The door is open for assessment reform; here is a bold plan for getting it right.

📝What s So Great About Art Anyway Book Synopsis : Inviting readers to examine schools and teaching with a critical lens, this visually and conceptually captivating graphic novel advocates for arts education in schools. At the center of this work is the author’s memoir as a young high school art teacher in the public school system. Through engaging (and frequently funny) anecdotes centered on classroom life, mixed with discussions of education policy and reform, readers explore teacher/student relationships, testing and accountability, 21st-century learning, and the history and purpose of art education. Branham’s personal narrative of challenges and triumphs demonstrate why art education should be preserved as a core subject if students are to understand the connection between creativity, critical thinking, and other higher-order skills. “What’s So Great About Art, Anyway?” is a refreshing book for everyone—particularly for in-service teachers—and is a smart foundational text in arts education and introduction to teaching courses. “This delightful graphic novel will challenge all teachers and prospective educators to think more deeply about their practice—the craft, the science, and, yes, the art of teaching.” —From the Foreword by William Ayers, author of To Teach: The Journey, in Comics (with Ryan Alexander-Tanner) “With a contagious passion, a dynamic pen, and a generous wit, Rachel Braham returns art to its rightful place in our schools—the beating heart of the education our children deserve. ‘What's So Great About Art, Anyway?’ isn’t just for art educators; it’s for all of us.” —Adam Bessie, Diablo Valley College, co-author of graphic report The Disaster Capitalism Curriculum (with Dan Archer) “This visually and conceptually captivating book blazes new territory in the tradition of teacher memoirs, while reminding us of the vital importance of art education in our schools.” —Gregory Michie, Chicago teacher, author of Holler If You Hear Me “This book is refreshing! Branham's ideas are purposefully provocative, and she expresses them through a popular medium.” —Laurel Campbell, Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne

📝Making Standards Useful in the Classroom Book Synopsis : It's true that state standards often have way too much content and aren't written in a way that enhances classroom instruction and formative assessment. That's why this guide is invaluable for any educator who wants to ensure that standards actually lead to higher student achievement. The authors give you good reasons for why some content standards should be dropped and explain how benchmark statements in standards should be rewritten. Learn how to sequence content and set up grading scales that help facilitate formative assessment and effective instruction. And get clear steps for unpacking and converting standards into guidelines that are much more useful to classroom teachers. To implement this book's much more efficient approach, the authors included over 240 pages of detailed scoring scales and sample measurement topics for k-8 science, math, language arts, social studies, and critical life skills topics for elementary through high school students.

Sharing her expertise as a world-renowned curriculum designer and calling upon the collective wisdom of 10 education thought leaders, Jacobs provides insight and inspiration in the following key areas: * Content and assessment--How to identify what to keep, what to cut, and what to create, and where portfolios and other new kinds of assessment fit into the picture. * Program structures--How to improve our use of time and space and groupings of students and staff. * Technology--How it's transforming teaching, and how to take advantage of students' natural facility with technology. * Media literacy--The essential issues to address, and the best resources for helping students become informed users of multiple forms of media. * Globalization--What steps to take to help students gain a global perspective. * Sustainability--How to instill enduring values and beliefs that will lead to healthier local, national, and global communities. * Habits of mind--The thinking habits that students, teachers, and administrators need to develop and practice to succeed in school, work, and life. The answers to these questions and many more make Curriculum 21 the ideal guide for transforming our schools into what they must become: learning organizations that match the times in which we live.
