  • Content planning, including using guiding questions, learning maps, and formative assessment
  • Instructional practices such as the use of thinking prompts, effective questions, challenging assignments, and experiential learning
  • Community building, in which you shape a classroom culture that promotes well-being, creativity, learning, and high expectations

Editorial Reviews

Stephanie Hirsh
"Jim Knight's High Impact Instruction honors teachers as intelligent, complex, and dedicated people. While many have attempted to identify the attributes of effective instruction, Knight's work singularly acknowledges the basic human need to be our best selves. A wonderful addition to the literature! "
Robert J. Marzano
"Jim Knight's book, High-Impact Instruction, absolutely delivers on the promise of its subtitle 'A Framework for Great Teaching.' It is breathtaking in its comprehensiveness and heartening in its practicality and detail. This is a must-read for teachers, coaches, administrators, and anyone interested in furthering what is known about effective teaching. "
Michael Fullan
"Jim Knight has the capacity to be crystal clear at both the micro and the macro levels—a rare talent. High-Impact Instruction goes deep and it goes comprehensive. Planning, instruction, and community building become interwoven in a powerful manifesto for fundamental instructional and system change—a treasure trove of clear concepts, great ideas for action, and the tools to implement them. "
Kathy Glass
"Seasoned author Jim Knight provides a masterful resource for teachers and other stakeholders to improve student achievement through a host of clearly defined instructional practices. The tools, resources, and examples he provides enable educators to easily implement his framework which comprise the key ingredients for effective instruction. Furthermore, his writing style makes it an engaging read. "
Beth Sanders
“It is really important to me that I am kind of getting the full circle view of my classroom and seeing these are things that matter and these are things that could be better, and things that I can do to hopefully make things better by watching my class.“
