"Student-Centered Coaching is a powerful model of professional learning that focuses on student outcomes. Unlike more traditional teacher-centered approaches that carry an implicit assumption of fixing broken teachers, student-centered coaches partner with teachers to design learning that is based on a specific objective for student learning. Teachers and coaches use data and student work to analyze progress and collaborate to make informed decisions about instruction that is differentiated and needs-based. By shifting coaching conversations from what the teacher is doing to how students are progressing in relation to a stated goal, coaching becomes both more respectful of teachers and results-based. Diane Sweeney's Student-Centered Coaching books have sold over 60,000 copies combined since the K-8 book was first published in 2010. The book series and related consulting services have appealed to coaches and administrators nationwide who appreciate Sweeney's emphasis on measurable students outcomes. Diane's work tackles the challenges of coaching across content areas, extending coaching practices to teams of teachers, using standards to coach toward specific goals, and embedding formative assessments into coaching conversations"--

"Too many U.S. classrooms lack a colorful compelling context for reading and writing, resulting in flat, uninspired, formulaic writing by students. Reading and Writing Genre with Purpose in K-8 Classrooms is designed to help pre- and inservice teachers, literacy coaches, and reading specialists question status quo ways of working with language and texts, replace weaker practices with better ones, and change the way genre is taught. Drawing from theory and research that suggests students learn better and more deeply when learning is contextualized and genuinely motivated, the book presents five guiding principles for teaching genre. Emphasizing purposeful communication, it will guide you through teaching students to read, write, speak, and listen to different real-world genres that inspire and engage them. Nell Duke, Samantha Caughlan, Mary Juzwik, and Nicole Martin: identify commonly used assignments and practices for teaching genre that are fundamentally flawed and explain why offer inspiring alternative practices, grounded in research and illustrated in real projects in real classrooms show how the five guiding principles come to life in reading and writing projects across the whole K-8 grade span provide planning sheets and other tools and tips that will allow you to manage genre-with-purpose instruction in your classroom."--Publisher.

It's no secret that in today's complex world, students face unparalleled demands as they prepare for college, careers, and active citizenship. However, those demands won't be met without a fundamental shift from traditional, teacher-centered instruction toward innovative, student-centered teaching and learning. For schools ready to make such a shift, project-based learning (PBL) offers a proven framework to help students be better equipped to tackle future challenges. Project Based Teachers encourage active questioning, curiosity, and peer learning; create learning environments in which every student has a voice; and have a mastery of content but are also comfortable responding to students' questions by saying, "I don’t know. Let's find out together." In this book, Suzie Boss and John Larmer build on the framework for Gold Standard PBL originally presented in Setting the Standard for Project Based Learning and explore the seven practices integral to Project Based Teaching: Build the Culture Design and Plan Align to Standards Manage Activities Assess Student Learning Scaffold Student Learning Engage and Coach For each practice, the authors present a wide range of practical strategies and include teachers' reflections about and suggestions from their classroom experiences. This book and a related series of free videos provide a detailed look at what's happening in PBL classrooms from the perspective of the Project Based Teacher. Let's find out together.
