Description

Academic standards call for increased rigour, but simply raising
complexity is not enough. Students must know how to effectively interact with
new knowledge. To do that, they must be able to summarise what they’ve read,
analyse text for specific characteristics and create organised, succinct
written works that demonstrate a deep understanding of the content. As
educators develop expertise in teaching these skills, students become adept at
recording and representing knowledge, both linguistically and
nonlinguistically, helping them retain the critical information. 

Recording & Representing Knowledge: Classroom Techniques to
Help Students Accurately Organise and Summarise Content explores explicit
techniques for mastering this crucial strategy of instructional practice. It
includes:



  • explicit
    steps for implementation

  • recommendations
    for monitoring students’ ability to record and represent knowledge

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

  • examples
    and nonexamples 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.
