Employ cognitive theory in the classroom every day Research into how we learn has opened the door for utilizing cognitive theory to facilitate better student learning. But that's easier said than done. Many books about cognitive theory introduce radical but impractical theories, failing to make the connection to the classroom. In Small Teaching, James Lang presents a strategy for improving student learning with a series of modest but powerful changes that make a big difference—many of which can be put into practice in a single class period. These strategies are designed to bridge the chasm between primary research and the classroom environment in a way that can be implemented by any faculty in any discipline, and even integrated into pre-existing teaching techniques. Learn, for example: How does one become good at retrieving knowledge from memory? How does making predictions now help us learn in the future? How do instructors instill fixed or growth mindsets in their students? Each chapter introduces a basic concept in cognitive theory, explains when and how it should be employed, and provides firm examples of how the intervention has been or could be used in a variety of disciplines. Small teaching techniques include brief classroom or online learning activities, one-time interventions, and small modifications in course design or communication with students.

Written in a clear and accessible style, the book explains why it is important to allow young children access to philosophy during primary-school education.

The American Association of School Librarians' (AASL's) Standards for the 21st-Century Learner define "inquiry" as a "stance toward learning in which the learner is engaged in asking questions and finding answers, not simply accumulating facts presented by someone else that have no relation to previous learning or new understanding. Inquiry follows a continuum of learning experiences, from simply discovering a new idea or an answer to a question to following a complete inquiry process." Inquiry is a crucial vantage point for teaching information literacy, but where can school librarians turn for help meeting those standards? Written by a "dream team" of school library leaders, Teaching for Inquiry will focus on this process, helping school library media specialists actively engage and motivate their students in learning. The authors go over the most important instructional models and help readers integrate these and new standards into their own teaching. The book even comes with a companion Web site including videos of librarians teaching and student learning that bring the various teaching techniques and motivational strategies described in the book to life! The planning tools, models, and methods featured in Teaching for Inquiry will provide essential guidance to librarians looking to engage their students in the world of information.
