WESTMINSTER, Calif. - Feb. 25, 2014 - PRLog -- When asked to incorporate formative assessment in their classrooms, many teachers respond by saying, "Yes, but how?" This new series from
Teacher Created Resources provides clear and effective resources for formative assessments in all subject areas.

At the beginning of each book, the author presents the rationale behind formative assessment, an explanation of the role of formative assessment in the Common Core Standards, and a fantastic overview of effective ways to use
formative assessment.

Then each book provides specific resources for formative assessments that can be used in all subject areas. The resources are presented in five sections:

  1) The pre-teaching assessment activities help teachers know where a class is    as a whole, so they know where to begin teaching. The activities also let the    teachers know who might need extra help and who might be ready
  for advanced work.
  2) Graphic organizers allow students to express what they already know, so    teachers can create effective lesson plans to help students progress in
  their learning.
  3) Written responses during the course of study help teachers gather    information about each student's progress.
  4) Collaborative reflections work with both small and large groups. They    promote the critical thinking, reasoning, and presentation of ideas required by    Common Core Standards.
  5) Technology and interactive assessments add another dimension to learning    and help fulfill requirements of the Common Core Standards.

The results? Differentiated instruction. Proactive students. Achieved Common Core Standards.

Each 80-page book comes with a CD and is available now for $14.99. Educators and parents can visit to find out more about these and other Teacher Created Resources products.
