Product description

Review

Jim Knight is one of my favorite educational authors. His ability to organize research and theory into comprehensible, action-oriented recommendations is unmatched in K-12 education, and he′s done it again with Focus on Teaching: Using Video for High Impact Teaching. It provides a blueprint for any school or district to continuously enhance the instructional prowess of teachers. Some of his concepts like video-enhanced professional development are revolutionary in their intent yet consummately simple, clear, and practical. This book should be a standard text for any educator interested in furthering the teaching profession.--Robert J. Marzano, CEO

While many advocate for using video to improve teaching and learning -- Jim Knight combines the rationale and strategies that compel us to take action. Aligned to the Standards for Professional Learning, Focus on Teaching: Using Video for High-Impact Instruction demonstrates how to have unmistakeable impact on educator practice and student achievement! Everyone needs to read this ground-breaking book and then go to work putting the powerful ideas into practice. Another winner!--Stephanie Hirsh, Executive Director

Not only is Jim Knight the reigning expert in coaching, but he keeps on innovating. Focus on Teaching extends and deepens how coaching can have a powerful impact at low cost through the purposeful use of video. It′s all there--ideas, tools, technicalities, frameworks, application. You can even coach yourself!--Michael Fullan, Professor Emeritus
