Annotation: The authors of this book believe that progressive educational principles can and should govern classroom practice. Writing in a style accessible to teachers and administrators, coaches, school board members, and parents, but with enough depth to satisfy researchers and policy makers, the authors define best practice in education and describe seven structures of best practice teaching. Separate chapters on reading, writing, math, science, and social studies demonstrate best practice teaching across the curriculum. The book's final section offers ideas on assessing best practice and achieving best practice schoolwide. The book's readable b&w layout includes student-teacher dialogues, bullet points, margin notes, and b&w photos. This fourth edition examines the strengths and problems of the Common Core State Standards. Zemelman is a consultant in education. Annotation Â©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
