“In Teachers as Architects of Learning, Grift and Major shift our thinking from teaching to learning. Their three fundamental goals—(1) activate successful student learning, (2) grow in consciousness about how intentional teaching impacts learning, and (3) learn through reflection—provide the structure of this brilliant resource. In it, you will find well-researched and practical suggestions, classroom scenarios, and examples for making you, your classroom, and your school remembered for impactful learning.”

Tammy Heflebower, educational consultant and author

“This intensely practical book lays out twelve core education practices. You’ll be motivated to master them by the clear rationale the authors give for each one. Better yet, the authors provide excellent guidelines for learning to use these constructs, information that allows you to reflect on your progress, and exemplars of what they look like in practice. Start with one, and you’ll return to these pages for more.”

Jane A. G. Kise, educational consultant and author
