Mindful Learning: 101 Proven Strategies for Student and Teacher Success.
This book outlines 101 tried-and-true strategies for making teaching more effective. Grounded in research from the cognitive sciences and best classroom practices, the strategies are divided into the following areas: "Beginning With What Students Know: Activating Prior Knowledge" (e.g., visual sequencing, speaking categorically, and guided anticipation); "Active Learning: An Essential Classroom Ingredient" (e.g., visual story mapping, guided learning, and conducting scientific inquiry); "Ensuring Gender-Fair Instruction: For Female and Male Students" (e.g., seeking student feedback on gender dynamics, quality questioning, and peer support networks); "Teaching Diverse Students: Addressing Language, Class, Culture, and Ability Differences in the Classroom" (e.g., leveling lessons, engaging the gifted, and collaborative note taking); and "Assessing Student Performance" (e.g., test-taking matters, test-taking rules for students, and making rubrics). Each section presents strategies and examines what the research says about using such strategies. (SM)
