The Act of Teaching prepares students to be competent beginning teachers and to develop into competent experienced teachers. Research-based, the text emphasizes what teachers need to know about students (how they learn and their diversities); how to plan and provide instruction; how to assess, manage and motivate students; and how, overall, to be an effective teacher. Well-designed pedagogical features prompt students to reflect on what they are learning, highlight current issues and topics, and encourage students to apply what they are learning.
Deborah Bainer Jenkins is professor of curriculum and instruction at the University of West Georgia.
