Book Review for Grading and Group Work: How Do I Assess Individual Learning When Students Work Together?
“The heart of the book is the how-to individually assess students who are working in groups. Brookhart covers everything from oral conferences (which I think are a wonderful idea) to student reflections on their learning (written), to summative assessments that have precise, well-designed questions, she offers several, well-crafted solutions to really get to the heart of the assessment process in group learning.”

In this guide, experts Susan M. Brookhart and Jay McTighe show how best to incorporate the formative learning cycle into everyday instruction. They offer techniques for sharing learning targets, assessment activities to use in the classroom, and strategies for providing student feedback.
What teachers say to students—and how they say it—affects student learning and behavior. Language sets the tone for learning. Teachers use it to foster a positive culture and climate in school, manage students, and teach discipline. Mike Anderson, author of the best-selling What We Say and How We Say It Matter, offers advice to help teachers get started with building better language habits to support psitive culture and climate; efffective management and discripline; and strong academic engagement.
