Abstract:

Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey help you develop lasting subject-area understanding with ideas for modeling, guided practice, productive group work, and independent work that effectively engage adolescents. You'll learn to: distinguish incidental knowledge from core background knowledge; check students' understanding prior to a unit with tools such as opinionnaires, interest surveys, and anticipation guides; model how to activate and apply prior knowledge so kids can wrestle with new content; build up students' background knowledge through virtual fieldtrips, YouTube, guest experts, and more; and provide collaborative ways for students to develop expertise, show what they know, and own their learning. --From publisher's description.
