What?! Another New Mandate?: What Award Winning Teachers Do When School Rules Change
Author Randi Stone is an expert at observing award-winning classroom teachers and creating compilations of their best practices that all teachers can enjoy reading and adapting for their own use. This collection focuses on how creative teachers cope with constant change: new standards; new requirements for curriculum, instruction, and assessment; shifts in funding, class size, and school populations; rapid advances in math, science, and technology; and perhaps most poignantly, the need to respond to sudden traumas like the September 11, 2001 attack on New York City that affected everyone's life both inside the classroom and out.
