Clarity in the Classroom - Michael Absolum
Grow your understanding of formative assessment.
Clarity in the Classroom, written by our director Michael Absolum, is a key resource not only for our facilitators but for many in the New Zealand education community. Leaders and teachers find it useful for explaining clearly and simply, with examples, the principles and practices of formative assessment. They particularly appreciate the practical suggestions and strategies for establishing learning-focused relationships with students and developing effective classroom practice.
Clarity in the Classroom is published by Hodder Education 2006. A United Kingdom edition was published in 2009 and a North American edition in Canada in 2010.
You can order it from Education Resource Centres around the country. Some kura and schools have purchased a copy for each of the kaiako on their staff as an essential teaching resource.
