Overview

There's no doubt. The explosion of new information we are called on to teach is overwhelming. The volume of new technologies available to our students expands daily. That's not going to change.

Presenting their system for creating those environments, which they call the STRONG Model (first introduced in their award-winning book for parents, Why Bad Grades Happen to Good Kids, the Silberts reveal the wisdom they've acquired in over 40 years of working with students as teachers, administrators and educational therapists.

This is a must-read for teachers and administrators caught in the chaos of trying to conduct school-as-usual in the midst of implementing new performance requirements for both students and teachers--the Common Core State Standards and the InTASC Standards specifically.

The Silberts connect the dots between the longstanding mission of educators and those things that teachers need to know and do to demonstrate proficiency with respect to the InTASC standards and evaluation models like the Danielson Framework.

And as they say in the book, "...if we as teachers, parents, administrators and other school personnel stay current with respect to new content and methods and keep our eyes on the mission-to create environments where all students have opportunity to LEARN and experience academic success-student test scores, school ratings, and teacher evaluations will all take care of themselves."

Easy to read and digest, Why Bad Grades Happen to Good Teachers is a book you will want to keep close by and refer to often.
