Classroom scenes from elementary and high schools show teachers how to use Total Participation Techniques (TPTs) to get and hold students' attention, activate higher-order thinking, and provide formative assessments of academic progress.
Hear teachers and administrators explain the steps to implementing TPTs so that they engage every kind of learner, from English language learners to gifted but disinterested students.
See field-tested techniques like pair-share and pause-star-rank in action, take a tour through an actual TPT tool kit to discover effective supplies to use with TPTs, and witness a peer coaching session that observes and breaks down ways to maximize learning.
Based on the best-selling ASCD book Total Participation Techniques: Making Every Student an Active Learner, Pérsida and William Himmele explain how to make every student an active learner.
