This book provides a nuanced explanation of how teachers can apply the strategies and techniques in The New Art and Science of Teaching to the teaching of writing. This book takes the framework in The New Art and Science of Teaching and offers more than one hundred detailed strategies for and examples of implementation. Throughout the book, the authors address ten teacher actions from The New Art and Science of Teaching within the categories of feedback, content, and context. They focus on how the forty-three elements embedded in these categories specifically apply for teachers of writing. Each chapter includes self-rating scales that readers can use to assess their performance on each element. By doing this, they can determine their areas of strength and the areas in which they might want to improve relative to The New Art and Science of Teaching. Each chapter ends with Guiding Questions for Curriculum Design to help with planning.

The pressure is on. Principals, expected to improve math performance at their schools, often don’t know where to begin—as they may be uncomfortable with math themselves or believe that their schools are already doing all that they can. How can K–12 school leaders recognize and ensure that their school or district is supporting good math instruction? Drawing on their vast experience working with administrators, Small and Duff answer that and other questions and provide practical advice and helpful tools for improving math instruction.
