All professions have their jargon, but the language of the education world is so impenetrable that it has become the stuff of internet jokes. This book translates and defines the terms and jargon unique to the K-12 world. What's the difference between Title I, Title IX, and Title VII? How does a norm-referenced test differ from a criterion-referenced test, or from a high-stakes test? What do classrooms look like when cooperative learning, experiential education, constructivism, block scheduling, or inclusion are being implemented? The Education Week Guide to K-12 Terminology will be a must-have reference for those new to the field, and will give veteran educators the language they need to explain terms to parents, school boards, and the outside world.
