370.115 Aye   Ayers, Rick. TEACHING THE TABOO: COURAGE AND
              IMAGINATION IN THE CLASSROOM. This book is filled with
              classroom stories of everyday teachers grappling with many of

              demoralization that has gripped the profession in this age of
              standardization and testing. It will help teachers to teach
              initiative, to teach imagination, to “teach the taboo”.

371.01 Vol    Vollmer, Jamie. Schools CANNOT DO IT ALONE: BUILDING
              PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR AMERICA'S PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
              Part memoir, part how-to manual, Schools Cannot Do It Alone
              tells of the authors encounters with blueberries, bell curves,
              and smelly eighth graders, and, most importantly, describes a
              no cost plan that every district can use to secure the support it
              needs to unfold the full potential of every child. From publisher.

371.1 Him     Himmele, Persida. TOTAL PARTICIPATION TECHNIQUES:
              MAKING EVERY STUDENT AN ACTIVE LEARNER. Providing
              easy-to-use alternatives to the “stand and deliver” approach to
              teaching that causes so many students to tune out--or even
              drop out--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. The authors explain both the why and the how
              of Total Participation Techniques (TPTs) as they place TPTs in
              the context of higher-order thinking and formative assessments
              and demonstrate how to create a “TPT-conducive classroom.”
              From publisher.

371.264 Har   Harris, Phillip. THE MYTHS OF STANDARDIZED TESTS:
              WHY THEY DON'T TELL YOU WHAT YOU THINK THEY DO.
              The authors spell out the assumptions underlying standardized
              tests and point out what's true about them and what's just plain
              mythical. But they not only debunk common assumptions; they
              propose better ways to judge the success of our schools. They
              also offer suggestions for ways they can help reduce the
              burden of tests on students. Appendixes offer contact
              information and suggestions for actions they can take to
              become part of the solution to the problem of overusing and
              misusing standardized tests.

              administrators, and communities in culturally considerate ways;
              applying practical tools learned from case illustrations and new
