Connect theory to practice with this timely, comprehensive whole-child approach to accelerated learning.
Planning for equitable accelerated learning is analogous to preparing a meal. Similar to a chef selecting the menu, gathering ingredients, and planning the occasion, educators choose aligned curricula to prioritize learning, organize and internalize instruction, and plan for opportunities to advance student learning.
Grounded in research and employing the Science of Learning Development (SoLD) principles, this book offers bold new thinking about unfinished learning, equity, and student success. The five-course framework guides educators through the process of
- Assessing the current school conditions and mindset for acceleration versus remediation
- Reflecting on empowerment
- Surveying and reimagining curriculum
- Understanding and embracing diversity and equity
- Establishing and implementing effective foundational instruction
- Promoting, expanding, and reflecting on student engagement
Including frequent opportunities for reader reflection, real-world vignettes, and tools that can be brought directly into the classroom, this book delivers everything educators need to adopt a whole-child approach to advancing student learning and engagement.
