COMMON CORE CPRPractical strategies for achieving active, authentic learning


What About the Adolescents Who Struggle...or Just Don't Care

By ReLeah Cossett Lent and Barry Gilmore. The authors embrace what they see is best about the standards—their emphasis on active, authentic learning—and then explicitly show teachers how to connect these ideal outcomes to practical classroom strategies, detailing the day-to-day teaching that can coax reluctant learners into engagement and achievement. They show teachers how to consider choice and relevance in every assignment, plan and spot opportunities for success, scaffold students’ comprehension of complex fiction and nonfiction texts, model close reading through thoughtful questioning, and teach students to use evidence in reading, writing, speaking, and reflection. Grades 6–12. Index. Bibliography. Appendixes. 7˝" x 9˝". Corwin. 307 pages. ©2013.
