Known for her expertise in developing and assessing student learning outcomes, Dr. Fabry has issued a wake – up call to high school faculty, administrators and teacher educators to transform the energy in high school classrooms. She has created a new take on “teaching well” where faculty members experience the marriage of research-based instructional strategies to the daily practices of truly effective teachers.  The wedding result? The creation of genuine, engaging, learning connections with the students who pass in and out of their doors.

In On teaching well: using classroom instructional strategies to increase your teaching effectiveness, (Ready or Not Press, e-book, $14.95, 2013), Dr. Fabry leads the reader participant first to a mirror to create an honest self evaluation that draws from the well known works of James H. Stronge, resulting in a new self portrait and an action plan for change.

Weaving in her personal experience along with real life case studies, Dr. Fabry ties together with a strong knot, teacher effectiveness and the research-based instructional strategies espoused by Marzano, Pickering and Pollack.  Learning activities, mini lectures, mapping and grading rubrics throughout the text and appendices connect the two in unity and an inseparable, energy filled bond.  The e-book is designed for a variety of applications from individual faculty use, curriculum supplements for teacher educators, a stand alone course or Professional Development Programs.
