Effective Teaching Methods: Research-Based Practice [With Myeducationlab]

Effective Teaching Methods: Research-Based Practice [With Myeducationlab] Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Effective Teaching Methods: Research Based Practice, Seventh Edition, prepares prospective teachers to meet the challenges of today's changing classrooms by providing effective, practical, research-based practices in an accessible, conversational style. Based on over 25 years of actual, in-classroom research, this text offers solidly research-grounded strategies empirically related to positive outcomes rather than the common anecdotal suggestions for good teaching found in other books. Gary Borich portrays the experiences of real teachers in real classrooms to show future teachers both what to do to meet today's teaching challenges in the classroom and how to do it.
