"You know that schools are getting serious about school improvement when they are willing to adjust school schedules and address how time can be used more effectively to increase student learning. This book provides teachers with a manageable framework for lesson planning, utilizing extended learning time, and selecting and using specific classroom-level activities that can help all students become motivated and successful learners."
"It is not unusual for teachers to feel overwhelmed when their school shifts from a traditional bell schedule to a 90-minute block. Sejnost guides teachers from feelings of apprehension and nervousness to those of confidence and excitement by giving them tools and research-based strategies to reach their students in new and challenging ways within the block."
"Sejnost presents strategies that teach the skills students will need well into the 21st century, strategies that enable students to locate, synthesize, evaluate, retain, and utilize information as successful adolescent learners and as successful adults in our fast-paced, knowledge-driven society."
"Teachers who have block scheduling will develop their expertise by using this text. This book provides a four-phase lesson plan format that sets the purpose for learning and offers several strategies to foster critical and creative thinking."
"I strongly recommend this book to both preservice and practicing teachers. Sejnost has achieved the perfect balance between theory and practice through research-based strategies and a useful four-phase lesson planning framework. We are excited to make this practical, hands-on guide a permanent part of our teacher preparation curriculum."
