So What Do They Really Know?
So What Do They Really Know? includes a wealth of information: Lessons from Cris's classroom; Templates showing how teachers can use the workshop model to assess and differentiate instruction; Student work, including samples from linguistically diverse learners, struggling readers, and college-bound seniors; Anchor charts of student thinking; Ideas on how to give feedback; Guidelines that explain how conferring is different from monitoring; Suggestions for assessing learning and differentiating instruction during conferences; Advice for managing ongoing assessment.
Cris focuses on the need for assessment to help guide teaching rather than a basis for punishment, providing invaluable feedback for teachers and students.
