Are you looking for high-impact, research-based strategies to transform your students into high-achieving and inspired learners? In The Strategic Teacher, you'll find a repertoire of strategies designed and proven to meet today's high standards and reach diverse learners. Twenty reliable, flexible strategies (along with dozens of variations) are organized into these groups of instruction: *mastery style to emphasize the development of student memory; *understanding style to expand students' capacities to reason and explain; *self-expressive style to stimulate and nourish students' imaginations and creativity; *interpersonal style to help students find meaning in the relationships they forge as partners and team members, united in the act of learning; and *four-style strategies that integrate all four styles. To guide teachers in delivering content to students, the authors started with the best research-based teaching and learning strategies and created a tool called the Strategic Dashboard. The dashboard provides information about each teaching strategy in a concise, visual profile; it is also designed to document how you incorporate current, highly respected research into your instructional plans. For each strategy, you'll find the following information: *a brief introduction to the strategy; *an example of a teacher using the strategy in the classroom; *the research base supporting the strategy and how the strategy benefits students; *how to implement the strategy using a list of clear steps; *guidance through the planning process, providing steps, examples, and suggestions for designing superior lessons; and *additional tools, strategies, and resources for adapting and expanding the use of each strategy. The authors have combined their years of research and practice to deliver reliable, high-impact, flexible teaching and learning strategies grounded in current, highly regarded research to teachers at all levels of experience.

Designed in partnership with more than 75 schools, Strategic Teacher PLC Guides make the important work of bringing high-impact, research-based instructional practices into every classroom easier than ever before. Each guide focuses on one strategy from the best-selling ASCD book The Strategic Teacher: Selecting the Right Research-Based Strategy for Every Lesson and serves as a complete professional development resource for a team of teachers (or professional learning community) to learn, plan, and implement the strategy in their classrooms.This guide focuses on Reading for Meaning, a reading and reasoning strategy that helps students understand new ideas, make inferences, and support their thinking with evidence.

Reading for Meaning gives all students the opportunity to practice this three-phase approach by* Using simple statements to preview and predict before reading.* Actively searching for relevant evidence during reading.* Reflecting on and synthesizing both their learning and their thinking process after reading.This PLC Guide takes you and your colleagues on a "guided tour" of Reading for Meaning, enabling you to* Learn how Reading for Meaning builds reading, reasoning, and problem-solving skills.* Experience a model lesson using the Reading for Meaning strategy and learn from sample lessons and planning forms designed by other teachers.* Plan a complete Reading for Meaning lesson for your classroom.* Reflect deeply on your lesson to refine and expand your use of the strategy.* Examine student work at various levels of proficiency and use your findings to plan next steps in building students' reading, thinking, and comprehension skills.Harvey F.

This guide focuses on the Interactive Lecture, a strategy that increases students' abilities to think actively about the content of lectures and presentations so they can lock the critical information in their memories. The Interactive Lecture engages students and helps them build strong permanent memories by leading them through the following four-phase learning process: * Connect: The lecture begins with a hook that helps students connect their experiences and background knowledge to the lecture topic. * Organize: The lecturer presents information in manageable "chunks," which students record on visual organizers. * Dual-Code: The lecturer uses a variety of presentation techniques to make content more memorable. * Exercise and Elaborate: The lecture closes with a synthesis task that has students integrate or summarize what they have learned. This PLC Guide takes you and your colleagues on a "guided tour" of the Interactive Lecture, enabling you to * Learn how the techniques built into the Interactive Lecture help students actively process and remember critical information. * Experience a model lesson using the Interactive Lecture and learn from sample lessons and planning forms designed by other teachers. * Plan a complete Interactive Lecture for your classroom. * Reflect deeply on your lesson to refine and expand your use of the strategy. * Examine student work at various levels of proficiency and use your findings to plan next steps in building students' recall and comprehension.

Drawing from the research on which classroom strategies are your "best bets" for improving student achievement, the authors provide what you need to reinforce the Common Core in your lessons, including: a rationale for using each strategy to address the goals of the common core; research that supports the use of each strategy; steps for implementing each strategy in the classroom; sample lessons in multiple grade levels and subjects; and planning considerations to make certain your use of the strategy helps students become better at reading, understanding, using, and communicating rigorous texts. This practical book's teaching recommendations and sample lessons draw on six tips for inspired instruction that ensure your lessons capture students' interest, deepen their understanding, and extend their thinking about required course content. --Publisher description.

Is great teaching a gift that only a few of us are born with, or is it a skill that can be learned? In Never Work Harder Than Your Students, Robyn Jackson makes a radical assertion: Any teacher can become a master teacher by developing a master teacher mindset. The master teacher mindset can be achieved by rigorously applying seven principles to your teaching until they become your automatic response to students in the classroom. The more you practice these seven principles, the more you begin to think like a master teacher: 1. Start where your students are. 2. Know where your students are going. 3. Expect to get your students to their goal. 4. Support your students along the way. 5. Use feedback to help you and your students get better. 6. Focus on quality rather than quantity. 7. Never work harder than your students. Using these principles, Jackson shows you how to become a master teacher no matter where you are in your practice. Each chapter provides a detailed explanation of one of the mastery principles, the steps you need to take to apply them to your own practice, and suggestions for how you can begin practicing the principle in your classroom right away. Jackson offers stories from her own teaching practice, as well as from other teachers she has helped, to show you how each principle works. Teaching is a hard job, but using Jackson’s principles will help you and your students reap the rich rewards of that hard work.
