Depth matters!

Can a mere fifteen words turn today’s youth into the innovative, ambitious thinkers we need? Yes, contend Jim Burke and Barry Gilmore, because these are the moves that make the mind work and students must learn if they’re to achieve academically. With Academic Moves, Jim and Barry distill each of these 15 powerhouse processes into a potent concision that nevertheless spans core subject areas:

  • Before, during, and after sections offer essential questions, lesson ideas, and activities.
  • Student samples illustrate what to look for and the process for getting there.
  • Culminating tasks include producing an analytic essay, argument, and more.
  • Reproducible rubrics assist with assessment.
