Great teachers often make teaching look almost effortless but, inevitably, if you look closer, you’ll discover their ""perfect lessons"" are the result of thoughtful planning and strategic organization. Peter Brunn draws from his own teaching experience as well as years of classroom research with hundreds of teachers across the country to bring you the steps, strategies, and structures successful teachers use to organize and manage their lessons so that you, too, can experience success with every lesson you teach. Even if you are using a program or mandated curriculum, there are ways to weave in Brunn’s findings about effective teaching. Learn how to address the standards while crafting lessons that ignite student thinking, foster student engagement and independent learning, and, in all ways, create a classroom environment that promotes academic success. For use with Grades K–6.
