Uniting the Disparate: Connecting Best Practices and Educational Mandates
Coke, Pamela K.
English Journal, v97 n5 p28-33 May 2008
Pamela K. Coke observes two high school English teachers who carry out practical assessments that supply them with an understanding of student achievement. The strategies used, such as Socratic seminar, book club meetings, and sticky notes, provide constructive information about what students are able to do and help identify ways such practices translate into students' demonstrating their knowledge on standardized tests.
