Formerly a SkyLight publication. Integration is a powerful tool in today's standards-based classroom. In Clustering Standards In Integrated Units, author Diane Ronis takes that power one step further with integrated units. Teachers discover how to cluster standards in integrated units, so that they can cover more standards without sacrificing content or learning. Based on research that people learn best by doing, Ronis' book presents techniques for sustained, in-depth exploration of events, circumstances, or objects in the students' environment. By using authentic models of real-world problems, students learn to develop critical thinking skills and become motivated to learn. Templates for integrated unit planning are provided as well as blackline masters for teachers to use to create their own units. Each chapter concludes with fully developed sample units and, for convenience, Web sites for state standards are listed in an appendix.

This handbook is designed to help school staff members and others broaden their view of assessment and put assessment into the broader context of school restructuring while keeping the focus on students. The handbook is arranged in sections, each dealing with a separate topic. Each section contains a number of papers by different authors that represent the best thinking on the topic. Each section begins with an overview that discusses the major perspectives, ideas, issues, and concerns that relate to the section topic and describes how each paper fits into this fabric. The sections are: (1) "Setting the Stage"; (2) "Placing Student Performance Assessment within the Context of School Restructuring"; (3) "Developing Student Learning Goals for the 21st Century"; (4) "Aligning Assessment with Curriculum and Instruction"; (5) "Designing Performance Tasks"; (6) "Establishing Performance Criteria"; (7) "Using Performance Assessment Information for Improvement"; and (8) "Implementing Performance Assessment." In all, there are 98 papers in the handbook and 3 "resources": a glossary, a list of assessment information sources, and a list of contributors. Most of the articles contain references and illustrations. (SLD)

Formerly a SkyLight publication. Linked to standards, this resource provides you with the ideal instructional tools for designing, implementing, and evaluating problem-based learning experiences. Author Diane Ronis offers specific, practical projects for the classroom, and explains how to make technology an integral part of the inquiry process in real-world problem solving. According to the Ronis, "Research indicates that an integrated approach to learning aligns with the way the brain naturally processes and internalizes new information. Since mathematics and science are integrated in the world outside the classroom, and technology has become a natural extension of this integration, it seems only logical that these areas be studied together inside the classroom."

Some of the 13 chapters urge planners to incorporate community equity concerns into traditional planning areas such as transportation and economic development. Others challenge planners to get more involved in social areas such as urban education and community policing. Each chapter is authored by one or more professionals with expertise in the subject at hand. A helpful resource for planners who continue to tackle the problems of inequality.

This book is appropriate for curriculum development courses in both early childhood education and elementary education. Promoting the idea of teachers as reflective practitioners, rather than managers of time and activities, this reader-friendly book takes an integrated, research-based approach to the early childhood (ages 4-8) curriculum. With its conversational style, the text is immediately engaging as it promotes developmentally appropriate practices that encompass the diverse interests, abilities, and backgrounds of all learners. This book captures the spirit and the fundamental, practical application of a child-sensitive approach to curriculum development, delivery, and assessment.

Ten large builders build more than 20 percent of all homes in the United States. And those builders are changing the way land is developed, relying increasingly on planned unit development and master-planned communities that differ significantly from the first generation of PUDs. This report from APA's Planning Advisory Service will help you revise your ordinance to deal with the new generation of PUDs. Written by Daniel Mandelker, with contributions from Dwight Merriam, David Callies, and others, it provides recommendations on how PUD ordinances can be drafted, with examples from communities around the country. It also includes a review of case law and state statutes. The accompanying CD-ROM includes maps, photographs, development plans, agreements, articles, and statutory materials.
