Description

Can your students analyse their own
understanding of content?


Academic standards call for increased rigour, but simply raising
complexity is not enough. Students must also know how to investigate,
experiment, solve problems and deepen their understanding of the content. They
need to be able to apply their learning to authentic, reality-based situations.


Engaging in Cognitively Complex Tasks: Classroom Techniques to Help
Students Generate & Test Hypotheses Across Disciplines
explores
explicit techniques for mastering a crucial strategy of instructional practice:
teaching students to generate and test hypotheses. It includes:



  • explicit steps for implementation

  • recommendations for monitoring if students
    are able to generate and test hypotheses

  • adaptations for students who
    struggle, have special needs or excel in learning

  • examples and non-examples from classroom
    practice

  • common mistakes and ways to avoid them


The
Essentials for Achieving Rigour series of instructional guides helps educators
become highly skilled at implementing, monitoring and adapting instruction.
Put it to practical use immediately, adopting day-to-day examples as models for
application in your own classroom.
