Are students more capable of acting appropriately when they know exactly what is expected of them? Of course they are. Literacy in the Student-Centered Classroom explains classroom management, the role of assessments in learning, and various methods for engaging students. In a step-by-step fashion, the reader learns how to set up a classroom, before discovering how to use assessment to make lessons more effective. The final chapters of Literacy in the Student-Centered Classroom detail mini-lessons, assignment sheets, and assessments, which provide students the opportunity to choose, within the framework or structure of the unit, how to complete the requirements given them. Williamson includes several humorous stories that help pinpoint the expectations for the student-centered classroom.
