Shirley Clarke
is an Associate of the Institute of Education, University of London, and is a leading expert on formative assessment and an education consultant in the UK and internationally. She is an experienced primary teacher, advisory teacher, and a popular speaker.  Her course and training for teachers, and ongoing work with her many action research teams, give her a down-to-earth perspective on day-to-day classroom realities which is reflected in all of her books.

Reviewer comments: Active Learning Through Formative Assessments

We know that formative assessment is proven to both raise student learning and improve test scores.  We also know that formative assessment is often the missing link to POWERFUL instruction.  Shirley Clarke’s new book provides a framework for formative assessment and explores “what to do” and “how to think about it.” 
 

                                          Bonita DeAmicis

I like the fact that the learner is paramount throughout this book.  It's all about the student and how the student interacts with the learning. The teacher's role is well articulated but always written around what the teacher will do to support the learner and the learner's investment in their own learning. So the whole idea of "active learning" in the title really tells the story of what the book is about.
 
                                          Marilyn Duncan 

Too often in American schools assessment equates with increasing standardized test scores—assessment is done to children rather than with them.  This book provides a solid framework to help educators understand the importance of including students in the assessment process, as well as how to use assessment to promote learning.

Beauty & the Beast                  Storytellers
 

Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss, who live in Ithaca, New York, have been performing together professionally as Beauty & the Beast Storytellers at schools, libraries, coffeehouses, museums, festivals, and conferences throughout the United States and Canada since 1980. They leave it to their audiences to decide which one is the Beauty and which the Beast.

Martha, formerly a reference librarian at Cornell university, began telling stories as a hobby after she mistakenly walked into a storytelling workshop while attending a library conference.  She was eventually introduced to Mitch by a friend who told her, “Mitch may not know it, but he’s a storyteller."  Mitch had majored in government as a student at Cornell, a field which some have jokingly commented seems "perfect for a storyteller.”

Martha and Mitch have also written four of our

Margaret Mooney
’s teaching, writing, and publishing career began in New Zealand.  For two decades she divided her time between New Zealand and the United States. Margaret encourages teachers to view all children as worthy, not needy, emphasizing education as a process of enhancement and not one of compensation. She promotes guided reading as an instructional approach in which children practice, apply, and extend skills and strategies in order to understand text on the first reading. Margaret has written the Books for Young Learners Teacher Resource, Text Forms and Features: A Resource for Intentional Teaching, Reading To, With, and By Children, and she collaborated with Terry Young and contributing authors on Caught in the Spell of Writing and Reading: Grade 3 and Beyond. In 1998, Queen Elizabeth II appointed Margaret as an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for her services to education, particularly the teaching of reading.

Best-selling author Shirley Clarke provides a wealth of high quality ideas, practical strategies, classroom examples and whole-school case studies for teachers in primary and secondary schools.

The most comprehensive of Shirley Clarke's titles includes extensive examples and realia, in full colour. The book is clearly structured around the ways in which teachers actually teach, with QR coded web video clips to illustrate key points in action.

- Helps teachers create an environment for pupils to be active learners, constant reviewers and self-assessors

- Ensures teachers start and finish lessons effectively by initially establishing their prior knowledge and capturing their interest and finally encouraging pupil reflection to find out what has been learnt and what still needs to be developed
