Additional Book Details

"Video will completely change the way we do professional learning."

—Jim Knight

To improve our teaching methods, we must understand what our current teaching methods are. And this is impossible to do this based only on our own perceptions or even feedback from observers. A classroom is a dynamic environment and there is always a lot going on that can be missed in the moment.

The solution, according to renowned professional development expert Jim Knight, is video. In Focus on Teaching, Knight turns to the vast and disruptive potential of video recording to reach new levels of excellence in schools. This book builds on Knight’s prior bestsellers to show how every classroom can easily benefit from setting up a camera and hitting "record".  The book includes

Strategies that teachers, instructional coaches, teams, and administrators can use to get the most out of using video
Tips for ensuring that video recordings are used in accordance with ethical standards and teacher/student comfort levels
Protocols, data gathering forms, and many other tools to get the most out of watching video

With Jim Knight’s expertise and the latest in video technology, positive change in your classroom will be immediate and long-lasting.

"This book provides a blueprint for any school or district to continuously enhance the instructional prowess of teachers. Concepts like ‘video-enhanced professional development’ are revolutionary in their intent, yet consummately simple, clear, and practical."

—Robert J. Marzano, CEO

Marzano Research Laboratory 

"While many advocate for using video to improve teaching and learning, Jim Knight combines the rationale and strategies that compel us to take action."

—Stephanie Hirsch, Executive Director
