Active Assessment in English: Thinking, Learning and Assessment in English [With CD], Michael W. Apple, 9781843124696


Everybody seems to be talking about Assessment for Learning. This book shows you how to do it. The thinking behind the highly influential `Assessment for Learning’ approach is translated into usable and practical strategies for all those teaching literacy in primary and secondary classrooms. The authors show how thinking, learning and assessment can be linked together in a creative and integrated fashion, so that thinking promotes learning, learning enables assessment to take place and assessment acts as a stimulus to both thinking and learning. Concise teachers’ notes for a broad range of dynamic techniques explain for each: what the approach is how you use it for assessment how you can manage it in the classroom how it helps with learning. An interactive CD ROM accompanies the book with all of the activities and ideas that can be used on Interactive Whiteboards. Active Assessment for English will prove inspiring reading for all literacy teachers at primary and secondary levels, LEA advisers and inspectors.
