|About the Book|
Behaved. On-task. Compliant. Long before Common Core, a paradigm shift in education moved best practice from stand-and-deliver lectures to lessons that are supposed to be engaging for students. Navigating the sea of research, professional development, and plug-and-play graphic organizers has left many teachers heads spinning. And many students bored. Teachers seek to not only engage students intellectually, but also to make this critical thinking visible in a way that can be assessed. Wipe Out Worksheets marries research on both of these essential elements of effective instruction with concrete strategies teachers can use with their existing curricula and teaching style. So put the worksheets away and prepare to teach students that are: Engaged. Thinking. Successful.
