From the Back Cover
Leaders of Their Own Learning
Leaders of Their Own Learning offers a new way of thinking about assessment based on the celebrated work of EL Education. Student–Engaged Assessment involves students in understanding and investing in their own growth, changing the primary role of assessment from evaluating and ranking students to motivating them to learn. Student–Engaged Assessment ignites the capacity of students to take responsibility for their own learning, building the independence, critical thinking skills, perseverance, and self–reflective understanding they need to meet the demands of the Common Core, reach higher levels of achievement, and succeed in college, careers, and life.
This book offers teachers and leaders a clear, detailed blueprint for implementing Student–Engaged Assessment, including a wealth of videos that demonstrate core practices in action.
Praise for Leaders of Their Own Learning
"Long before the nation began discussing Common Core standards, EL Education was working with thousands of educators to design learning targets that expressed clear, shared understanding for what students should know and be able to do. Let this serve as your guide to EL Education, a concept so successful but so simple that you′ll wonder aloud why it isn′t universally available for those kids who would benefit from it most."
From the Foreword by Mike Johnston, Colorado state senator
"Chockfull of examples, tips, and video illustrations, this masterful book achieves the remarkable feat of being both a practical how–to guide for how students, teachers, and school leaders can use student–engaged assessment, and a visionary argument for how we can invert the school reform pyramid and put students in charge of their own learning."
Jal Mehta, associate professor, Harvard Graduate School of Education; author, The Allure of Order
