This District Administration Reader’s Choice award-winning book features over 60 ways to ensure that students are interacting with the concepts, processes, and information in the TEKS, the Virginia SOLs, the Common Core, and other rigorous state learning standards.

The opening pages feature a review of the research followed by charts specifically identifying best use of these practitioner-tested strategies. The “Active Learning Strategies to Use If You Want…” categories include:

  • Gathering pre-assessment data
  • Accessing prior knowledge
  • Setting purpose for reading
  • Promoting vocabulary development
  • Building in creative and critical thinking
  • and nine more!

The purposes, the processes, and the possibilities are explained with clarity and examples of classroom use with students of all ages are included. More than 50 tools and templates are available online.
