With fresh and engaging content, books in the Classroom Essentials series bring the transformative power of foundational ideas and student-centered practices to today’s busy teachers.

Each book in the Classroom Essentials series focuses on one essential, student-centered practice, giving you the information you need to get started trying it—or refining it—in your own classroom right away. Each book features a fresh, highly visual design to create an engaging, contemporary reading experience. Most books in the series also include robust online resources—including video that shows you what the practice looks like in today’s dynamic classrooms.

Perhaps most importantly, each author in the series is a nationally-known authority on the book’s topic, and connects you with their own teaching mentors. You’ll see how today’s most progressive practices are built on a solid foundation of research found in professional literature.
