This book draws from six years’ work by the Developing Inquiring Communities in Education Project (DICEP) to provide a range of practical, replicable methods for building collaborative communities, in which democratic principles of education may be realized. Recognizing that each classroom is unique in its makeup, its context, and its history, these seasoned teacher-researchers rely heavily on discourse, both spoken and written, to engage students in the active learning process. Their findings are striking and clear, and testify to the exciting potential that dialogic interaction and collaborative knowledge building have for the field of education. Key features of this book are: identification of appropriate research questions; real-life teaching strategies based on extensive hands-on experience in the field; and workable suggestions for facilitating inquiry-based learning and teaching.

Common Core implementation begins with asking the right questions! While the Common Core couldn’t be clearer about what to teach, they never quite tackle how to teach. That’s what makes Inquiring into the Common Core such an essential resource. It offers teachers an inquiry-based professional development model for achieving greater understanding of the standards themselves, then determining best ways to realize desired outcomes. Posing questions to stimulate action and higher-level insight, teachers and students engage in a parallel process in service of the very same Common Core goals. The book is their guide, providing Tools to systematically study teaching effectiveness while adapting to new standards Classroom-ready, student inquiry techniques and strategies to apply within Common Core’s framework Real life inquiry-implementation examples from a high-need, high-poverty school

"This practical guide for teachers centers on ways to help students manage their own behavior, rather than on ways their behavior can be managed by teachers, peers, parents, or other adults. Interventions focus on creating success, not on finding cures for problems. Attention is also given to behavior-management approaches within the context of school reform." "This proactive book features case material that illustrates the assessment, planning, implementation, evaluation, and reassessment process you will use in managing classroom behavior; an emphasis on considering situations from multiple points of view (the teacher and his or her feelings, the child, the parents, the other students in the classroom); vivid examples that demonstrate a wide variety of situations in special education and regular classrooms at both the elementary and the secondary level; and strategies for decreasing teacher "burnout.""--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
