Classroom Assessment: What Teachers Need to Know
Written with energy and wit, this reader-friendly text discusses practical ways in which teachers can develop and use well-written tests to improve their effectiveness in the classroom. With its constant attention to the instructional implications of educational assessment, Classroom Assessment: What Teachers Need to Know, 7/e, helps readers become assessment literate -- to understand the fundamental concepts and processes of educational testing that will influence teachers' hour-to-hour instructional decisions. The text recognizes and highlights the exponential increase in the importance of educational assessment in an era of common core state standards, national assessment consortia, and teacher-evaluations based on students' test scores. However, because the seventh edition was completed at a time when the nature of high-stakes educational testing in the U.S. was genuinely unsettled, the author consistently informs the readers of instances when, in truth, they need to stay tuned for the next development in today's high-stakes U.S. testing arena. As a result, the reader feels part of an exciting and evolving profession.

The Act of Teaching: Pt. 1: Theater Techniques for Classrooms and Presentations
Teachers can convey their ideas more powerfully if they take time to improve their presentation skills. The Act of Teaching : Nancy Houfek, Head of Voice and Speech for the American Repertory Theatre at Harvard University, leads a workshop that stresses the importance of communication with the whole self in order to reach an audience. Throughout the workshop, she introduces participants to the same techniques that actors use to prepare and deliver a performance, including warm-ups, relaxation, strengthening, and visualizing exercises. In Part I, Theater Techniques for Classroom and Presentation, Houfek focuses on overcoming stage fright, knowing your objectives, and 'landing your message'. In part II, Physical and Vocal Exercises , she leads teachers through 20 minutes of exercises specifically designed to prepare them for the physical challenges of the classroom, beginning with 'Waking Up the Body', and moving to vocal warm-ups that treat the voice as an instrument requiring care. Together, these techniques and exercises present a new set of resources that greatly broaden the avenues we customarily use in communicating with colleagues and students. An illustrated guide to exercises is included as a PDF.

Creating the Opportunity to Learn: Moving from Research to Practice to Close the Achievement Gap
After years of applying more pressure on schools to raise achievement levels for all students, particularly those who underperform their mainstream peers, the achievement gap today remains virtually unchanged. But the reality is that there's proof that, under the right conditions, all students can achieve at high levels. Instead of quick-fix reforms that promise miracles but deliver little, here's a book that delves into the research to provide you with realistic solutions for catching up children in danger of failing and dropping out. Two giants in the fields of education, psychology, and equity-A. Wade Boykin and Pedro Noguera-reveal bold truths about the achievement gap, including: Why it's a mistake to explain and rationalize the persistence of the achievement gap on the basis of a single influence, such as poverty, family background, or culture. What is wrong with popular approaches to closing the achievement gap. Why it is critical to focus on the assets that each student brings to the classroom, rather than on the perceived deficiencies. Why pluralizing the cultural conditions in schools increases the possibility that a greater number of students-from a wider range of backgrounds-will learn. Drawing from the evidence from successful schools, this definitive text provides you with a promising framework for addressing the key actions that need to be replicated in schools everywhere, such as: Promoting and enhancing student engagement in learning and addressing avoidance behaviors. Raising the levels of three key personal behaviors: self-efficacy, self-regulated learning, and incremental ability beliefs about intelligence. Cultivating constructive classroom dynamics and transactions such as positive teacher student relationships and collaborative learning. Here's your opportunity to understand why some school districts are making more progress than others, to make sure you're focused on what really works, and to build the capacity of high-performance, high-poverty schools.

Advice for New Faculty Members
Advice for New Faculty Members: Nihil Nimus is a unique and essential guide to the start of a successful academic career. As its title suggests (nothing in excess), it advocates moderation in ways of working, based on the single-most reliable difference between new faculty who thrive and those who struggle. By following its practical, easy-to-use rules, novice faculty can learn to teach with the highest levels of student approval, involvement, and comprehension, with only modest preparation times and a greater reliance on spontaneity and student participation. Similarly, new faculty can use its rule-based practices to write with ease, increasing productivity, creativity, and publishability through brief, daily sessions of focused and relaxed work. And they can socialize more successfully by learning about often-misunderstood aspects of academic culture, including mentoring. Each rule in Advice for New Faculty Members has been tested on hundreds of new faculty and proven effective over the long run -- even in attaining permanent appointment. It is the first guidebook to move beyond anecdotes and surmises for its directives, based on the author's extensive experience and solid research in the areas of staff and faculty development.

A Human Relations Approach to the Practice of Educational Leadership
This text centers on human relations skills and knowledge noted by ISLLC (Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium) that educational leaders need in order to engage public school stakeholders in a more effective manner. A critical analysis methodology is used to integrate and reflect on the insights of counseling psychology and educational administration. As a consequence of this approach, organizational and management practices need to be altered from traditional approaches. This text contains extensive examples with exercises that solidify concepts and ideas and help the student make the transition from theory to practice. The content of this text is rooted in the first four ISLLC standards. The text is divided into four parts: the foundations of human relations (psychodynamic, humanistic, and cognitive-behavioral approaches), human relations attitudes (empathy, respect, and genuineness), communications (cultural, nonverbal, verbal, and written), conflict resolution, and special issues (humanization, diversity, groups, mentoring, and stress issues).
