Fanatically Formative: Successful Learning during the Crucial K-3 Years
Sornson, Bob
Helping children experience early learning success and acquire essential skills by third grade is a crucial part of any school reform effort. Yet, many teachers and children are overwhelmed by the ineffective curriculum-driven education system and the "rush to cover" climate in schools. "Fanatically Formative" shows how you can rediscover the joy of teaching and help children fall in love with learning again. This book traces the journey of a teacher as she works through the challenges of formative assessment and responsive instruction to discover the practices that will help her students succeed. K-3 teachers, principals, and district administrators will learn how to: (1) Set clear, attainable learning outcomes; (2) Make teaching responsive to the whole child; (3) Monitor student progress toward essential skills; (4) Build a truly positive classroom and school culture; and (5) Collaborate to help young children succeed. With surveys, lists of essential skills, study questions for PLC groups, and highlighted summaries of key points, "Fanatically Formative" offers a clear and powerful vision for your early learning success initiative along with the action steps to achieve your goals.
