Online Book Study
Title: Teach Smart
Authors: PJ Caposey and Todd Whitaker
This session is a Menu C course option for the WVCPD Teacher Academy and is open to all teachers.
Transform your classroom from teacher-centered to learner-centered! This book provides eleven strategies you can use immediately to put students at the center of their learning!
Get your students geared up for success and high achievement with great ideas for: • providing a roadmap • giving the work back
• differentiating daily instruction
• communicating for your audience, not to your audience
• giving students choices • planning intentional engagement • asking better questions
• and more
For each strategy, you get a clear example of what it looks like in action, as well as a breakdown of how to make it work in your classroom! Each online book study will be facilitated by an outstanding WV educator.
You will be expected to post responses weekly based on assigned readings in the book. You will be asked to apply strategies from the book in your classroom and report back to the forum for discussion and reflection. Your facilitator will guide and support you through this process if you have never participated in an online book study before.
The book study is two months in duration.
Books will be mailed to participants approximately one week prior to the session start date. Approximately one week prior to the session start date teachers will receive information via email with detailed instructions about how to participate in the online book study.
Your space will not be guaranteed until payment for the session or purchase order number is received.
