Rosenshine's Principles in Practice
As someone who now spends most weeks working with teachers seeking to improve their practice, the discussions I hear are not about whether or not to adopt the principles; they are about how to adopt them most effectively, more frequently, and with higher intensity. Barak Rosenshine wrote an article in 2012 for the International Academy of Education that set out a series of 10 simple, research-based principles of instruction that make for more effective teaching. Tom Sherrington read that article, and he's been talking about it ever since. As a principal, coach, and educational consultant in schools across the UK, Sherrington has been adapting the Principles of Instruction to classroom use for years. What he's found is that teachers embrace the principles like nothing else. There are no gimmicks, no fads, nothing outlandish; it's a set of ideas that are rooted so authentically in classroom experience that they are nearly uncontentious. Teachers either recognize themselves in the descriptions, or they see obtainable models to aspire to. Sherrington brings his expertise to this guide, elaborating and building on Rosenshine's principles with classroom examples, actionable strategies, and tested methods of implementation developed from real classroom experience. Rosenshine's Principles in Practice explains exactly how to successfully and authentically make your instruction more effective.

Spark Change: Making Your Mark in a Digital World
Kids are naturally curious about the world around them. They seek ways to understand and interact with their environment, often using digital tools to do so. Imagine a world where children's curiosities are amplified -- helping them see the power of their thinking, perspective and voice. Spark Change examines the multitude of possibilities available when students are given the opportunity to amplify their learning online, centering on three ideas of citizenship: be a good person, be critical and be an advocate for something you care about in life. The book introduces readers to Liv, a young changemaker empowered to use digital tools to create and share content online. Liv's story offers readers an opportunity to explore how students can use technology as a tool for empathy, equity and activism. Kids can't become changemakers if they aren't empowered to think beyond their own community. Liv's online sense of agency serves as an example of maximizing opportunities, developing a powerful voice and making global connections that deepen her compassion for people and the world. Connected-learning opportunities help students develop key understandings about the world around them. This book shows how these understandings lead to social action, and how students develop a deeper sense of empathy and kindness from interacting with the world.

Scientific Challenges to Evolutionary Theory: How these Challenges Affect Religion
Scientific Challenges to Evolutionary Theory: How These Challenges Affect Religion addresses all aspects of the giant battle between two major belief systems...those that believe in a 'naturalistic worldview' and evolution, and those that believe in a miracle-performing God and the Creation of all things. On a trip to Mount St. Helens, some look at the catastrophic eruption of May 18, 1981 as a significant corroboration of the Creation event. Others, deniers of the possibilities of miracles, hold to the view that God's creation cannot be taken seriously by the scientific community. At the Mount St. Helens book store, I asked about books for sale that gave a Christian view of the catastrophic eruption. The reply was, I'm sorry, sir, but we only carry books by scientists. It was time for the author, Jay Schabacker, to do a little scientific sleuthing. Join Jay Schabacker as you learn of the hundreds, even thousands, of Ph.D. scientists who repudiate the theory of evolution, but hold rather to the truth of the theory of Creation. Significant general information, likely new to most readers gives corroborative evidence from many sources, including: * From all over the ancient world, hundreds of accounts of a global flood * Well documented accounts of the Ark of Noah, indeed, located at the top of Mount Ararat * Ancient 'Near East' finds, inscribed on rock, told of the actual details covered in the Holy Bible Numerous scientific papers refute the naturalistic dogma forced on us the government, public schools, universities and media. You'll find arguments that assert: * The earth's geological features appear to have been fashioned by rapid catastrophic processes that affected the earth on a global scale. * Life on earth was suddenly created, not over billions of years. * The use of radiometric dating method is often grossly in error. * The fossil record shows that all present living kinds of animals and plants have remained fixed since creation. * Mutations and natural selection are insufficient to have brought about any emergence of living kinds from a simple primordial organism. * The universe has obvious manifestations of an ordered, structural plan and design. The universe and the solar system were suddenly created. If evolution is wrong why are our children being only taught it in our public schools? Numerous polls favored biology teachers teaching Darwin's Theory of evolution, but also the scientific evidence against it. The final section of the book gets further into the Action Plan where church pastors and members, scientist groups, etc., could make an important difference if: * We all read about the subject and started the conversation; * We gave our views to the school boards and legislators who are the decision makers; * We initiate needed petitions in support needed legislation; and * We urge church pastors to create their own church schools and concerned families to start home schooling for their children.

How to Teach a Play
Most students encounter drama as they do poetry and fiction - as literature to be read - but never experience the performative nature of theater.

Hyper-Socialised: How Teachers Enact the Geography Curriculum in Late Capitalism
Hyper-socialised explores the challenges of late capitalist times for education systems, schools and teachers. It looks at how trends of accountability, 'teaching to the test', using pupil voice and reliance on network technologies are all connected to powerful social and economic forces, shaping the curriculum as it is taught in classrooms. Such forces threaten to overwhelm teachers but, in the right hands, they can also be harnessed to create, influence and teach a truly powerful curriculum for their students. Presenting a historical view of curriculum change, the book examines how society, curriculum and teachers are linked. Using geography as an illustrative subject, the chapters investigate what influences teachers, to what extent they are in control of the curriculum, and what else is shaping it. Divided into two parts, it offers An in-depth exploration of the relationship between society, teachers and the curriculum, including that what and how to teach remain wide open to debate Evidence-based research into the significance and implications of 'hyper-socialised' curriculum enactment for teachers and teacher education Four case study 'portraits' of geography departments and personal curriculum stories of each Head of Department Insights into the nature of teaching as a profession and how a crisis of teacher recruitment and retention may be addressed. Written in clear and accessible terms, this book is an essential resource for teacher educators, subject teachers, headteachers and educational researchers who want to understand how and why schools and teaching are changing - and what this means for them.

Teaching about Race and Racism in the College Classroom: Notes from a White Professor
Teaching about race and racism can be a difficult business. Students and instructors alike often struggle with strong emotions, and many people have robust preexisting beliefs about race. At the same time, this is a moment that demands a clear understanding of racism. It is important for students to learn how we got here and how racism is more than just individual acts of meanness. Students also need to understand that colorblindness is not an effective anti-racism strategy. In this book, Cyndi Kernahan argues that you can be honest and unflinching in your teaching about racism while also providing a compassionate learning environment that allows for mistakes and avoids shaming students. She provides evidence for how learning works with respect to race and racism along with practical teaching strategies rooted in that evidence to help instructors feel more confident. She also differentiates between how white students and students of color are likely to experience the classroom, helping instructors provide a more effective learning experience for all students.

Intentional Tech: Principles to Guide the Use of Educational Technology in College Teaching
Chalkboards and projectors are familiar tools for most college faculty, but when new technologies become available, instructors aren't always sure how to integrate them into their teaching in meaningful ways. For faculty interested in supporting student learning, determining what's possible and what's useful can be challenging in the changing landscape of technology. Arguing that teaching and learning goals should drive instructors' technology use, not the other way around, Intentional Tech explores seven research-based principles for matching technology to pedagogy. Through stories of instructors who creatively and effectively use educational technology, author Derek Bruff approaches technology not by asking How to? but by posing a more fundamental question: Why?

!Vamonos al cine!: Short Movies for Spanish Conversation
Designed to engage students and inspire lively conversational practice, !Vamonos al cine! Short Movies for Spanish Conversation provides language learners with a collection of short films in Spanish, coupled with vocabulary and grammar activities, to support language acquisition and improve their speaking ability. The book and movies help students learn new vocabulary, review grammar, and develop an understanding of Hispanic culture, history, and social habits. The text and movies cover a variety of unique and interesting topics, including the influence of technology on personal relationships, romantic and familial relationships, Hispanic culture and history, personal identity and social pressure, immigration, and more. For each topical area, students are challenged to read new vocabulary, answer preliminary questions, and make predictions about the movie they are going to watch. Links and QR codes within the text provide students with easy access to the individual films. After watching a film, students read related articles, answer questions, and review a specific grammatical aspect of the language used in the movie. Finally, they are prompted to create dialogues and perform a scene from the movie or participate in debates about the topics covered in the film or in class. Highly innovative in approach, !Vamonos al cine! is a valuable learning resource for intermediate level Spanish courses, especially those with focus on conversational Spanish.

Making Every MFL Lesson Count: Six principles to support modern foreign language teaching
James A. Maxwell's Making Every MFL Lesson Count: Six principles to support modern foreign language teaching shows modern foreign languages (MFL) teachers how they can take their students on a learning journey that both educates and inspires. Writing in the practical, engaging style of the award-winning Making Every Lesson Count, experienced MFL teacher James A. Maxwell empowers educators with the strategies and know-how to boost their students' attainment, engagement and enthusiasm in the MFL classroom. Making Every MFL Lesson Count is underpinned by six pedagogical principles - challenge, explanation, modelling, practice, feedback and questioning - and helps MFL teachers ensure that students leave their lessons with richer vocabulary, a better grasp of grammar and the skills and confidence to put the language learnt into practice. Bursting with templates, examples and flexible frameworks, this gimmick-free guide provides educators with a range of practical techniques designed to enhance their students' linguistic awareness and help them transfer the target language into long-term memory. James skilfully marries evidence-based practice with collective experience and, in doing so, inspires a challenging approach to secondary school MFL teaching. Furthermore, he concludes each chapter with a series of questions that will inspire reflective thought and encourage teachers to relate the content to their own classroom practice. Suitable for MFL teachers of students aged 11 to 18 years.

Next Steps with Academic Conversations: New Ideas for Improving Learning through Classroom Talk
Conversation was not invented to help people choose right answers on tests. It evolved to solve problems, build ideas, build relationships, and understand others and the world. Yet despite its power to grow minds and hearts, effective conversations are still too scarce in our schools. Jeff Zwiers, an educational researcher at Stanford University, has spent the last 15 years analyzing classroom conversations to see how they can be better used and improved in classroom settings. Teachers who have worked with him report significant growth in students' engagement, content learning, language, creativity, and sense of agency. Jeff shared his initial vision for classroom conversations in his 2011 book, Academic Conversations. In this follow-up book, Next Steps with Academic Conversations, he builds on those original ideas by offering an updated synthesis of conversation work across disciplines and grade levels, highlights of the most recent classroom-based research and theory on classroom conversation, answers to questions that have emerged during this work with teachers and administrators, and new classroom strategies and practices for fostering and assessing classroom conversations. This resource is the product of his extensive research, co-teaching, and collaborating with a wide range of educators. It was written for busy teachers who want a practical guide for strengthening the quality and quantity of productive conversations in their lessons.

Preparing Students for Writing Beyond School
What Happens in English Class Shouldn't Stay There There is an endless list of authentic tasks that students will need to engage with every day of their professional lives-from making a phone call to fellow experts and presenting to nonexperts, to reading technical instructions or reports and writing proposals or emailing inquiries. The ability to communicate many ideas to a variety of audiences with an ever-increasing range of tools is critical to any path students end up following, but the way schools engage with literacy skills leaves an enormous gap between what students are confident in, and what real life will expect from them. Lapp, Grant, and Thayre want to eliminate this learning curve by expanding the narrow range of communication skills we empower students to become experts in. Using what you know about teaching language selection, tone, voice, audience, organization, and style, this guide will help you to broaden your students exposure and deepen their insights through: Sample lessons Rubrics and Notes Tools and Activities Professional Models Dry-erase Reusable Outlines Through a real-world lens, this guide is an engaging exploration of the most critical components of communication. It is the most effective way to transform your instruction into something that actually prepares students for writing beyond school.
