Corwin Press has just added six new video series to its online collection focused on issues in K-12 education. The collection is housed on the Corwin Press YouTube channel and includes interviews with authors and insider reviews of education conferences.
Each video takes only a few moments to watch, and in my opinion, the best part is that they are also accessible from mobile devices.
The new series are:
Nancy Sindelar, author of Assessment-Powered Teaching (2011), on three keys to using assessment results to improve your teaching;
Pat Mora, author of Zing! Seven Creativity Practices for Educators and Students (2010), on how to be more creative in your teaching practice;
Elaine McEwan, author of The Reading Puzzle activity book series (2008), on how to put together the pieces of effective reading instruction;
Ken O’Connor, author of How to Grade for Learning (2009), on the eight guidelines for effective grading;
Douglas Llewellyn, author of Differentiated Science Inquiry (2011), on why inquiry-based instruction works and how to get started; and,
Harriett Arnold, author of Succeeding in the Secondary Classroom (2000), with helpful reminders for new and veteran high school teachers.
Currently including 180 videos, the channel is organized into playlists by topic or interest area, such as Improving Your Teaching Practice, and Classroom Management. You can also subscribe to the channel so that you can easily view new videos as the Press uploads them.
Corwin adds to the collection frequently, with new videos going up almost every week.
