Lesson Mastery [electronic resource]: The Effective Teacher

In this classic video presentation, acclaimed educator, author, and speaker Harry K. Wong outlines his no-nonsense approach to creating effective assignments.

They provide students with a study guideline at the beginning of an assignment that tells students what they are to accomplish or master by the end of the assignment.

Battle Over the Books [electronic resource]: Censorship in American Schools

John Scopes went on trial for teaching Darwin's theory of evolution; nearly 70 years later, an Illinois English teacher was confronted by protesters who demanded that J. D.

Whatever it's called, it means that books are under attack-from "Cinderella" to Huckleberry Finn.

The idea is to make the students actually read the comments on their work in order to help them improve, but they are left confused and angry after becoming so used to the traditional grading system. By the end of term, however, even Wiliam is surprised by the impact the experiment has had on the students' academic achievement.

Charter Schools Are Overrated: A Debate

Since 1991, when Minnesota passed the first charter school law, companies and individuals have established private schools using public funds.

From 2004 to 2014 alone, charter school enrollment increased from less than 1 million to 2.5 million students.
