Meet the Author

James Bellanca founded Sky Light Professional Development in 1982. As its president, he mentored more than a dozen author-consultants as he led Sky Light in pioneering the use of strategic teaching and comprehensive professional development. Prior to meta-analyses that marked the effectiveness of cooperative learning, graphic organizers, and other cognitive strategies on student achievement, Bellanca coauthored more than a dozen texts that advocated the application of these tools across the curriculum, with the theme, “not just for the test but for a lifetime of learning.” Currently, Bellanca is building on the theories of cognitive psychologist Reuven Feuerstein to develop more effective responses to the learning needs of low-performing students whose academic achievement continues to lag behind those who have greater learning advantages.
