The achievement gap is a language gap--and you can bridge it!
Mastering academic language is the "make or break" skill for school success. This much-needed book shows how teachers can scaffold instruction for students who struggle to learn, speakers of non-standard English, and English learners, helping students from all backgrounds to thrive in school. Readers will find:
Why do some students struggle to understand and retain information, while other students don't? The answer may well lie in the memory system, which is the root of all learning. In Memory at Work in the Classroom, Francis Bailey and Ken Pransky expertly guide you through the aspects of human memory most relevant to classroom teachers. Real classroom examples help to deepen your understanding of how memory systems play a central role in the learning process, as well as how culture plays a sometimes surprising role in memory formation and use.
The memory systems covered in the book are
* Working Memory: the gateway to learning
* Executive Function: the cognitive skills children need to independently orchestrate their memory systems in service to learning
*Semantic Memory: the storehouse of a person's knowledge of the world, including academic concepts, and the part of the memory system most affected by culture
* Episodic Memory: rich, multisensory personal memories of specific events
* Autobiographical Memory: one's sense of self, tied directly to student motivation
Although the techniques described apply to all students, the authors concentrate on explaining the source of struggling students' academic challenges and provide effective strategies for helping students become better learners.
Whether you're a new or a veteran teacher, this book will offer fresh insights into your students' learning difficulties and move you to explore classroom practices that align with the functioning of memory and the ways students learn.
