A brief narrative description of the journal article, document, or resource. This book provides practical, commonsense strategies successfully used by teachers to help students become active, responsible learners. In general, these strategies are centered on mutual respect, not bossiness; collaboration, not isolation; commitment to learning, not fear of failure; and the dignity of all, not praise or rewards for a few. Each strategy is described and examples of how it can be used by teachers, regardless of grade level or subject specialty, are provided. Strategies are grouped into broad general categories. The first category, "Instructing" includes strategies for developing high-involvement lessons and basic instructional strategies. Next, "Raising Student Motivation" incorporates strategies for expanding student confidence, for encouraging beyond praise and rewards, and for raising standards of excellence. The third category, "Organizing the Classroom," focuses on strategies for beginning a class, for concluding a class, for cooperative group work, and for efficiently using class time. "Handling Homework, Testing and Grading" is the subject of the fourth category. Finally, "Producing Meaningful Learning" contains strategies for reviewing and mastering information, for stimulating thinking, and for teaching beyong facts and details. An indexed glossary offers quick access to all strategies.
