EINSTEIN NEVER USED FLASHCARDS
Drawing on overwhelming scientific evidence from their own studies and the collective research results of child development experts, and addressing the key areas of development-math, reading, verbal communication, science, self-awareness, and social skills-the authors explain the process of learning from a child's point of view.
AUTHENTIC ASSESSMENT IN ACTION
This text examines, through case studies of elementary and secondary school classrooms, how five schools have developed "authentic", performance-based assessments of students' learning and how this work has interacted with and influenced the experiences students encounter.
Backed by the latest scientific evidence and illustrated with examples of what's being done right in schools today, this book introduces the ""6Cs"" collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation, and confidence along with ways parents can nurture their children s development in each area.
