Each week, I publish a post containing three or four particularly useful resources on classroom instruction, and you can see them all here.
Here are this week’s picks:
How Can Educators Design Authentic Performance Tasks? (Part 3) is by Jay McTighe. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Performance Assessment.
Why I Threw Away My Rubrics is by Jennifer Hurley. I’m adding it to The Best Rubric Sites (And A Beginning Discussion About Their Use).
Dana Goldstein writes in Slate about how teachers should respond to the “Trump Effect.” I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles On How To Teach “Controversial” Topics.
Is homework worth the hassle? is from The BBC. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Homework Issues.
The Education Endowment Foundation summarizes homework research on the secondary level. I’m adding it to the same list.
I’m adding this tweet to The Best Resources Documenting The Effectiveness of Free Voluntary Reading:
