Publisher's Summary

As a teacher, your duty toward your class is not limited to teaching. It also includes knowing which students are weak in which subjects and finding ways to assess this. Once you are able to do this, you will find that your students respond better to your classes and that you can tailor your classes to their needs.

In this volume, you will find many teaching assessment principles and practices that may not be conventional. However, they do work. How do I know? I have been teaching classrooms for most of my career and the techniques have all been tried and tested. They also apply to kids of most ages, although your technique is tailored to their ability level. Thus, whereas you would use written work in some of the exercises, younger kids may be encouraged to answer your assessment questions in picture format.

Not only do you gain the respect of your class, but they also feel that their voices are being listened to. Once you cross that teacher/student barrier in this way, the response that you get from children is always going to be more successful. You will know from the assessments where you need to place more or less emphasis. Children are all different and learn differently. It’s hard when you have a class of kids in front of you to level your teaching to fit all of them. However, when you learn assessment techniques that are effective - regardless of whether they are established or recognized - you win the battle of wits and are able to assess your class accurately.

The kids within your class deserve your best attention. Perhaps you think that you are giving them this, but the unconventional assessments shown in this book may demonstrate that you are not. I hope so, because it will keep you on your toes, learning the different styles of learning and being able to cater for them. When you know how to do that, you improve your overall score values in your class, and it is noticed by a school that your particular method of teaching has value. You will also find that your principal is only too happy to oblige you with extra props and the potential of outings if you explain in such a way that he will see the benefit to the children.

I hope that the book gives you sufficient information to up the ante in the classroom and helps you to bring out your gift of teaching in such a manner that your assessments help you to give that same value to each child in your class. Knowing their strengths and weaknesses is essential and once you do, you can use this to your advantage. Remember, they are not the only ones with weaknesses and strengths. Teachers have these, too, and addressing them will make you a stronger teacher and a more respected one.
