EPLS associate professor and doctoral student publish new book with Heinemann.

Congratulations to Dr. Alysia D. Roehrig (associate professor of Educational Psychology) and Elizabeth H. Brinkerhoff (doctoral candidate) on their book, No More Sharpening Pencils During Work Time and Other Time Wasters with the Not This, But That Heinemann Series. This researcher-teacher practitioner piece summarizes research about time management in the K-5 classroom and provides suggestions for planning and teaching that make every minute count.

“We need to evaluate how we spend time in our classroom by asking whether it is proportional to how valuable the activity is in fostering students’ independence and growth,” say Elizabeth Brinkerhoff and Alysia Roehrig. “If we want students to become adults who spend their time in purposeful, constructive ways, we need to give them opportunities to spend their time purposefully and take responsibility for how their time is spent.”

To learn more about time wasters and how teachers can use their time more efficiently, read the Q & A Series by Heinemann with both of our authors:
