Wayside Teaching: Connecting With Students to Support Learning is about intentionally practicing what building level educators do every day in perhaps intentional and/or unintentional ways: relate to students.
Wayside-teaching practices enhance academic learning and complement academic rigour because they build student self-concept, motivate learners to engage in the curriculum, and provide a sense of belonging and safety that can help free learners to participate more fully in their own education.
In this practical guide, Sara Davis Powell uses the framework of attitude, approach, and action to demonstrate how wayside teaching-the informal curriculum, the implicit instruction, the teaching and learning that happens in sometimes unintentional ways-can be intentionally practiced across all grade levels to facilitate learning and bring about enhanced student outcomes.
Sara Davis Powell is a teacher-from elementary, middle, and high school classrooms to teacher preparation as a professor and chair of the Department of Education at Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina. She is an advocate of active student engagement, emphasizing a balance of theory and developmentally responsive and academically rigorous practice. She is involved in local classrooms through the facilitation of professional development, supervision of clinical interns, and research and writing about a variety of education issues. She is also a frequent speaker at regional and national conferences, where her enthusiasm for teaching and students has proven contagious.
Powell's PhD in educational administration, supervision, and curriculum development is from the University of Colorado at Denver. Her most recent books include An Introduction to Education: Choosing Your Teaching Path (2009) and Introduction to Middle School (2nd ed., in press).
