Description

Can your students actively process content in groups?

Academic
standards call for increased rigour, but simply raising complexity is not
enough. Students need to be able to interact productively within a small-group
setting. As teachers become better at planning and providing practice sessions
that build these skills, students become more adept at participating in
structured grouping, peer response groups, paired practice, partner discussions
and reflecting on learning as part of a group.


Organising for Learning: Classroom Techniques to Help Students Interact Within
Small Groups
explores explicit techniques for mastering this
crucial strategy of instructional practice. It includes:



  • explicit
    steps for implementation

  • recommendations
    for monitoring students' ability to process content in groups

  • 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.


"I
would like to use Organising for Learning for my pre-service teachers
who are studying to be [primary] teachers. The content would be helpful to
role-model teaching and learning for their future success!" -
Daniele A. Massey, 2013 DoDEA Teacher of the Year


"Organising
for Learning
is a brilliant breakdown of the process of all seven techniques
and leads the educator thoughtfully through each. This book is a reminder of
what education SHOULD and CAN be for students." -
Heidi Welch, 2013 New Hampshire Teacher of the Year


"We
need more books that apply research and theory to instruction - all too often
what we know about teaching and learning never reaches the classroom. Organising
for Learning
paves that road well." - Diana Leddy, 2009 Vermont Teacher of the Year
