This comprehensive book offers nearly one hundred detailed strategies for and examples of implementation. Throughout the book, the authors address the following design areas within three categories of teaching: (1) feedback, (2) content and (3) context.

  • providing and communicating clear learning goals

  • using assessments.


2. Within the category of content, teachers will learn writing-specific strategies for:



  • conducting direct instruction lessons

  • conducting practising and deepening lessons

  • conducting knowledge application lessons

  • conducting all types of lessons.


3. Within the category of context, teachers will learn writing-specific strategies for:



  • engaging students

  • implementing rules and procedures

  • building relationships.


Each chapter includes self-rating scales teachers can use to assess their performance and determine areas of strength and improvement. Each chapter ends with guiding questions for curriculum design. This book will help all teachers address the learning outcomes for writing necessary for student success.


Adapted for the Australian context by Colin Sloper, whose leadership as principal was integral to Pakenham Springs Primary School being recognised as the first model of a professional learning community in Australia, this revised Australian edition of The New Art and Science of Classroom Assessment is an invaluable assessment resource for educators in all learning areas.
