Classroom Instruction that Works: Research-based Strategies for Increasing Student Achievement
What works in education? How do we know? How can teachers find out? How can educational research find its way into the classroom? How can we apply it to help our individual students? Questions like these arise in most schools, and busy educators often don't have time to find the answers.

Hi I was wondering if I could get 2 of them
Once I discovered that this book was to be used as a model for the evaluation system for teachers in my county, I had to read what the background behind the system was. Although I agree that this should not have been implemented as an evaluation system, the meat of the book describes what all good teachers should be striving toward with our students. The days of solely direct instruction and sitting behind a desk to teach are behind us. Teachers need to be facilitators of our students to guide them toward understanding and not holding their hands every step of the way. By incorporating strategies from the book, teachers can begin to broaden their horizons and better prepare our students for their future, not our past.
