"The hacks on prioritizing and unpacking the standards is a critical skill for teachers to master, as I feel that teachers interpret the standards in many ways resulting in different content being delivered." -Brian Ruhmann
Nothing gets me more excited than a new book in the Hacking Learning series. These books have profoundly bettered my teaching experience and have renewed my passion for entering my classroom each day. Hacking Instructional Design does not disappoint, packed full of ways to create a curriculum students are bound to love and succeed in. I love the suggestion to curl up with your standards like a kid with ice cream and dig in. :) The real world tips and, “what you can do tomorrow,” take the guesswork out and allow you to start now transforming your teaching no matter what point in the year you are at. In short this is another must-read from one of the best teaching series out there.
I have read many of the Hacked Learning Series Books and by far this is perhaps the most powerful. As an EDD student in Instructional Design, I found each of the "hacks" very thought provoking in its concept and practical in its application. A couple of the highlights follow: The "hacks" on prioritizing and unpacking the standards is a critical skill for teachers to master, as I feel that teachers interpret the standards in many ways resulting in different content being delivered. Several of the "hacks" focus on learning plans and the need to dispense with granular lesson plans, a must read for all administrators and teachers.
I highly recommend this book for all teaching professionals.
