  • Exercises to check your understanding of the strategies
  • Brief questionnaires to reflect on your current beliefs and practices
  • Tips and recommendations on implementing the strategies
  • Samples, worksheets, and other tools to help plan classroom activities
  • Rubrics to assess the effectiveness of the strategy with every student
  • Organized into 11 sections, sections 1-10 follow the same format (Brief introduction, modules, generalizations)--
  • Sections 1-9 address the nine categories of instructional strategies that can be applied to all types of content, at all grade levels, and with all types of students: 1.) Identifying similarities and differences, 2.) Summarizing and note taking, 3.) Reinforcing effort and providing recognition, 4.) Homework and practice, 5.) Representing knowledge, 6.) Learning groups, 7.) Setting objectives and providing feedback, 8.) Generating and testing hypotheses, and 9.) Cues, questions, and advance organizers.
  • Section 10 addresses instructional strategies that are most appropriate with specific types of knowledge--i.e., vocabulary terms, generalizations, and processes.
  • Section 11 presents a framework for using the instructional strategies-- helps teachers to improve effectiveness in their unit planning.
Every section begins with an introduction that is followed by one or more "modules" that address the specific strategies of that section. Within each module are eight components:
  • 2. Introduction--a brief intro to the presented strategies with an explanation of why particular strategies are lumped together in groups. Reflecting on My Current Beliefs and Practices--asks readers to relect on how and why they may use the strategies in that section
  • 3. Recommendations for Classroom Practice--deal with specific strategies and techniques, or generalizations about classroom practice, with further discussion and explanation.
  • 4. Checking My Understanding--a hypothetical problem is presented that gives readers the chance to apply what they have just learned.
  • 5. Assessing the Impact on Students-- rubrics that can be used to assess how strategies affect different students' learning.
  • 6. Planning My Classroom Activities-- a list of questions that when answered will help readers figure out how to best use the strategies discussed in their own classroom.
  • 7. Assessing Myself-- a question series that will help readers assess how to use the strategies effectively.
  • 8. Module Reflection-- Reflection questions that will help readers assess what the section taught them about strategies, how to use them effectively, and about their own teaching style.
