Summary

The Act of Teaching is a research-based text that helps student teachers develop the confidence and competence they need to succeed in the classroom. Practical and applied, the text addresses 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. Every topic covered in The Act of Teaching is derived from the recommendations of the Educational Testing Service on what a beginning teacher should know and from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards on what an effective experienced teacher should know.
