Discover how to improve classroom instruction with vignette analysis, an engaging and relevant form of professional development. The book features a wide variety of vignettes-from across 6-12 content areas such as English language arts, math, science, and social studies-designed to help teachers spot practices they like (or don't like) and help them to connect the teaching practices described to well-established and research-supported frameworks. Each vignette is followed by an analysis of the lesson, which includes questions, prompts, and ideas of how to continue the conversation for pre- and in-service teachers as well as teacher educators on an individual basis, small groups, or as a class.
