To do that, they must be able to to summarize what they've read, analyze text for specific characteristics, and create organized, succinct written works that demonstrate a deep understanding of the content. As educators develop expertise in teaching these skills, students become adept at recording and representing knowledge, both linguistically and nonlinguistically, helping them retain the critical information.Recording & Representing Knowledge: Classroom Techniques to Help Students Accurately Organize and Summarize Content explores explicit techniques for mastering this crucial strategy of instructional practice. It includes:? Explicit steps for implementation? Recommendations for monitoring students? ability to record and represent knowledge? Adaptations for students who struggle, have special needs, or excel in learning? Examples and nonexamples from classroom practice? Common mistakes and ways to avoid themThe Essentials for Achieving Rigor series of instructional guides helps educators become highly skilled at implementing, monitoring, and adapting instruction.

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.
