Product Description

Drawing from academic research and the collective experience of educators, Teaching What Matters Most offers four guiding standards to help all students meet the challenges of 21st century learning:

  • Rigor: helping students make sense of challenging texts and ideas
  • Thought: helping students become adept users of powerful learning disciplines
  • Diversity: helping students understand themselves and others
  • Authenticity: helping students apply what they learn to the real world

Each standard is supported by school-based examples, research-based teaching strategies, and assessment practices that allow schools and teachers to respond thoughtfully to the diversity of students’ needs.
