Peer Power: Unite, Learn and Prosper - Activate an Assessment Revolution (Paperback)
Activate an assessment revolution with the Peer Power Feedback Framework Formative assessment produces greater increases in student learning and is cheaper than other efforts to boost achievement. Peer Power gives teachers a practical 6-step framework for empowering students to take ownership of their learning through the self and peer assessment process.
The Peer Power Framework:
- expands feedback to learners
- amplifies quality classroom discussion
- expands student goal setting
- infuses dispositional learning
- strengthens metacognitive thinking
- integrates SEL practices into classroom culture
Thirteen practitioners offer concrete, practical strategies to support peer assessment in primary, upper elementary, secondary, math, English, social studies, and science. There is content dedicated to supporting English language learners and the use of technology to support goal setting and reflection.
Peer Power isn't just for students; there are three chapters written by experts on how to harness the capacity of teams (PLC's and Impact Teams) to strengthen their collaborative expertise to put learners at the center of the assessment process.
If you are a fan of formative assessment and feedback, if you believe in student-centered approaches to learning, if you want to increase student achievement by developing self-directed learners -- you will be a big fan of Peer Power.
