Forsten, Char; Grant, Jim; Johnson, Bob; Richardson, Irv
"Looping" is a practice that allows single-grade teachers to remain with the same class for 2 or more years. Organized in a question-and-answer format, this book answers 72 questions about looping commonly asked by teachers and parents, including questions about its benefits, disadvantages, and implementation. Chapters include: (1) "What Is Looping, and What Are Its Benefits?"; (2) "What Questions Do Most Parents Ask about Looping?"; (3) "How Will Looping Affect Me as a Teacher?"; (4) "This All Sounds Too Good To Be True! Are There Downsides with Looping?"; and (5) "I Need Details--How Do I Implement Looping?" The book concludes with an appendix, "Retention--A High-Stakes Decision," and a Resource section. The Resource section contains approximately 300 references organized by subject. (LPP)
