1 - 2 weeks availability
Performance-Based Learning: Aligning Experiential Tasks and Assessment to Increase Learning demonstrates how teachers can promote student achievement by incorporating performance tasks into the curriculum. This resource provides an abundance of sample lesson plans and rubrics that integrate performance-based learning across multiple content areas and can be modified for students at different grade and ability levels. The revised edition includes updated research, a new section about how to design your own performance-based learning activities, an expanded discussion of cooperative learning teams, and a collection of reproducible masters that teachers can use for planning and implementation.
Sally Berman specializes in teaching educators how to use practical strategies that expand student teamwork, cognition, metacognition, and self-evaluation skills. She developed and tested many of her ideas during her 30 years of teaching science in a large Chicago-area high school. Berman regularly presents at workshops and conferences and has taught graduate courses for SkyLight Professional Development in conjunction with St. Xavier University and Cumberland University.
