Summary This book is written to give teachers a vision of current, best 21st century classroom practice. It contains ideas for teachers, administrators, and education professors that help to transform classrooms into positive, productive learning environments. In the early 21st century, a new vision for classroom practice emerged that looked very different from the teaching that existed previously. This new teaching is a synthesis of effective curriculum, big ideas, nurturing relationships, differentiated instruction, appropriate assessment, teaching to standards, use of technology, and solid understanding of the content being taught. Six core principles emerge from the new educational theory that have the power to define and organize this new vision for classroom practice and to transform teaching itself. This book provides a map of education's "new landscape" of the current best practices and philosophies
