Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Total Participation Techniques presents dozens of ways to engage K 12 students in active learning and allow them to demonstrate the depth of their knowledge and understanding.

Book News Annotation:

Two teachers from Millersville University offer 37 classroom methods to fight student disengagement and develop higher-order thinking skills in K-12 students. The book begins with a rationale for using the authors' total participation techniques (TPTs). The TPTs themselves use movement, quick-writes and quick-draws, response cards, and techniques to guide note-taking and concept analysis. Each technique begins with an overview, then provides step-by-step instructions, ideas for encouraging students to think beyond the surface, and suggestions for adapting the technique for different content areas. The authors also explain how to use the TPTs in formative assessment and give tips for building a TPT-conducive classroom. Examples come from real middle school classrooms, accompanied by excerpts from conversations with new and experienced teachers at the school. An appendix explains Bloom's taxonomy. The TPTs can also be used by college professors and other presenters. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
