Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Teaching is extraordinarily important, complex, and demanding work, and a teacher’s workday consists of making hundreds of decisions that promote high-level student learning. The work is and should be daunting. Grounded and concise, Teaching Methods provides readers with theory-based practices that will illuminate the art and craft of teaching.

 

Through specific examples and sound theories that help teachers build successful classrooms, Teaching Methods presents instruction as a complex profession requiring high-level cogitative work from each teacher. The book successfully synthesizes theories, observations, and research into practical guidelines for instructional planning focused on the emerging needs of the 21st Century.

 

·        Relevant research findings are presented in clear, non-technical language and highlight practical implications that can be put into practice immediately.

·        Specific instructional examples provide concrete illustrations of each principle described the book. 

·        The appendix offers expanded instructional units to further apply chapter content and inform future practice.
