Elinor Miller, a long-time classroom teacher and curriculum specialist, provides her insights into educating students with diverse backgrounds and learning abilities. This book, a sequel to A Banner Experience, describes her educational experiences before she moved to Frederick, MD, and explains why and how she established The Banner School there in 1982.
Elinor is a teacher's teacher for sure! Not only does she understand the many obligations teachers have, she is also a grammarian of the first order, providing detailed direction on this subject. Her understanding of the benefits of challenging students to master difficult work and memorize poetry will motivate many teachers.
Her award-winning methods and high level of experience with organizing interdisciplinary science and social studies topics will encourage others to immerse their students in any of ten science topics and sixteen cultures of both the Old and New World.
This book is worth more than its price just for its extensive resources, including Word Web Vocabulary®, 101 Ways to Attack a Writing Assignment© and CommuniCards©, the latter a must for every classroom as it pinpoints the confusion many students exhibit with specific mathematical and language concepts.
Elinor?s M. Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, years of classroom management, founding of The Banner School in Frederick, MD., her continuing creation of Word Web Vocabulary® volumes, participation in Virginia Festival of the Book, and the challenge of running an eBay education store keep her in the education world.Please contact me with comments or questions. email@example.com.
