Description

Every day, teachers and administrators tirelessly work to
fulfil their most significant duty: to ensure students learn. In Unstoppable
Learning
, authors Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey uncover systems thinking as the
key to improving teaching and learning schoolwide. Systems thinking – which
involves distinguishing patterns and relationships and thinking through short-
and long-term consequences – is critical to creating clear learning targets,
preparing and delivering effective lessons, and successfully assessing
instruction. To be systems thinkers, educators must understand the big picture
of education and the intricate relationships that affect teaching and learning.
The Unstoppable Learning model contains seven essential elements of teaching and
learning to create a network of interactions that helps teachers and students
reach new understandings.
