It’s a well-grounded argument for seven principles teachers might adopt to help their students learn. It also draws pieces from a lot of the disparate research — Marzano’s and Wiggins’, to name two of the more well known. Yet much of it remains her own.
Robyn Jackson breaks her book down into seven principles that I would suggest are interesting to consider. It would make an interesting book for a teacher study group.
1. Start Where Your Students Are
2. Know Where Your Students Are Going
3. Expect to Get Your Students There
4. Support Your Students
5. Use Effective Feedback
6. Focus on Quality, Not Quantity
7. Never Work Harder Than Your Students
