Author/consultant Carolyn Coil’s updated, revised, and expanded resource is a “must-have” for all educators coming into the field of education and for educators experienced in the classroom and in administration.
Because of the intense emphasis on standards and accountability, Coil first explains and examines the most important and current educational ideas, theories, issues, laws, and strategies for 21st century teachers and administrators. Then, as she does best in her professional development in-service, she synthesizes those topics and presents practical applications – Tools – for the classroom “in the trenches” teachers and their administrative leaders.
Teaching Tools includes practical planning formats or lessons and units (the Individualized Lesson Plan™ (ILP), a multitude of ideas for differentiation and assessment, and valuable information about No Child Left Behind (NCLB). The information and strategies presented and discussed correlate with the five core propositions that the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards® has deemed reflect the standards of excellence in teaching. Teaching Tools Topics include:
Educating Gifted Students
Dealing with Conflict
Cultural and Linguistic Diversity
Inclusion of Students with Disabilities
