Exclusive Excerpt: Keeping it Real
We’re educators. And we know what it’s like to throw the baby out with the bathwater. That’s why, in Chapter 7 of Powerful Teaching, we’re keeping it real.
We address nine challenges when implementing Power Tools, including retrieval practice, spacing, interleaving, and feedback-driven metacognition. Concerned about prep time, class time, grading time, and where to start?
We've got you covered! By keeping it real with small tweaks to what you're already doing, we make powerful teaching even easier for you.
Make sure to subscribe for updates and don’t miss out on next week’s excerpt!
What’s new about Powerful Teaching?
If you've been a long-time subscriber (thank you!), you may be wondering what's new about Powerful Teaching.
The majority of the book is brand new. From a rare scientist-teacher perspective, explore new strategies, new classroom examples, new insights from educators around the world.
We talk about research, Brain Dumps, Retrieve-Taking, and Metacognition Sheets. But you'll also learn new strategies you can unleash in your classroom with sample lesson plans, conversation starters, and practical tips.
Another big difference: We've intentionally embedded retrieval, spacing, interleaving, and feedback in Powerful Teaching. No chapter summaries and no rehashing. We practice what we preach, we model these strategies in each chapter, and we boost your learning, too!
