Times 10 Publications has chosen to publish this title in the hopes that doing so will reinvigorate the conversation surrounding the ways in which students engage with course materials. This book seeks to de-emphasize examinations in the classroom and instead help teachers encourage students throughout the entire learning process – not just at the end.
This title contains a wide array of tips compiled by Jorgensen to be easily implementable, presented to the reader across 9 sections. Each section tackles a different aspect of process-based instruction in order to help teachers build goal-driven lesson plans where the emphasis is placed on measurable milestones rather than examinations.
Through these methods, Jorgensen lays the foundations of an inventive pedagogical system, in which teachers become active participants in the student journey by helping to target specific misunderstandings. This methodology is intended to ensure that students are not left behind, and sees instructors providing constructive feedback on assignments and exams rather than the traditional pass/fail system.
One reviewer said, “This book is a quick read that offers practical ideas on how to work with students to build environments that take the spotlight off outcomes like grades and standardized test scores. Can we help students focus more on the 1000s of choices they are making every day instead of their g.p.a? Yes we can.”
