Written by an experienced practitioner who has a very current understanding of the school context, this book gives a fantastically clear, detailed and realistic strategy for primary schools with regards to raising attainment and inclusive practice. Anne Massey has provided a cogent and manageable system of provision mapping for whole-school improvement. – Pippa Whittaker, SENCO, Hans Price Academy, UK. 'This very detailed book will enable schools to develop whole school approaches which improve outcomes and ensure that they are removing barriers to participation and achievement for all children.' – Dr Peter Grimes, Principal Lecturer in Inclusive School Development, Canterbury Christ Church University, UK. This highly practical book contains all the guidance and resources a school will need in order to implement an efficient and effective system of pupil progress tracking and evaluative Provision Mapping. It is a tried and tested system that has been shown to improve outcomes for all pupils, including those with SEN, and sits at the very heart of school self-evaluation. Throughout this book, teachers will find achievable solutions to the problems schools face in trying to ensure that their practice results in all pupils making good progress. Anne Massey has adapted the original version of Provision Mapping and developed it into a more evaluative framework that links a number of school improvement actions together. All the recommendations in this book have been tried and tested in Primary schools, and have been proven to: bring about better progress and engagement for all pupils; provide an enhanced understanding of inclusion by teachers; improve communication between the school, parents and the Local Authority; reduce bureaucracy and paperwork for SENCOs; foster an improved understanding of 'value for money'. Headteachers, senior managers, leadership teams, SENCOs and other educational professionals will find the guidance and support provided by this toolkit invaluable. Provision Mapping will also be of value to those studying the more SEN-specific postgraduate diplomas or Masters level qualifications.

A teacher presents a lesson, and at the end asks students if they understand the material. The students nod and say they get it. Later, the teacher is dismayed when many of the students fail a test on the material. Why aren’t students getting it? And, just as important, why didn’t the teacher recognize the problem? In Checking for Understanding, Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey show how to increase students’ understanding with the help of creative formative assessments. When used regularly, formative assessments enable every teacher to determine what students know and what they still need to learn. Fisher and Frey explore a variety of engaging activities that check for and increase understanding, including interactive writing, portfolios, multimedia presentations, audience response systems, and much more. This new 2nd edition of Checking for Understanding has been updated to reflect the latest thinking in formative assessment and to show how the concepts apply in the context of Fisher and Frey’s work on gradual release of responsibility, guided instruction, formative assessment systems, data analysis, and quality instruction. Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey are the creators of the Framework for Intentional and Targeted (FIT) Teaching™. They are also the authors of numerous ASCD books, including The Formative Assessment Action Plan: Practical Steps to More Successful Teaching and Learning and the best-selling Enhancing RTI: How to Ensure Success with Effective Classroom Instruction and Intervention.

The future of learning depends absolutely on the future of teaching. In this latest and most important collaboration, Andy Hargreaves and Michael Fullan show how the quality of teaching is captured in a compelling new idea: the professional capital of every teacher working together in every school. Speaking out against policies that result in a teaching force that is inexperienced, inexpensive, and exhausted in short order, these two world authorities--who know teaching and leadership inside out--set out a groundbreaking new agenda to transform the future of teaching and public education. Ideas-driven, evidence-based, and strategically powerful, Professional Capital combats the tired arguments and stereotypes of teachers and teaching and shows us how to change them by demanding more of the teaching profession and more from the systems that support it. This is a book that no one connected with schools can afford to ignore. This book features: (1) a powerful and practical solution to what ails American schools; (2) Action guidelines for all groups--individual teachers, administrators, schools and districts, state and federal leaders; (3) a next-generation update of core themes from the authors' bestselling book, "What's Worth Fighting for in Your School?" [This book was co-published with the Ontario Principals' Council.].
