Summary

This best-selling text provides comprehensive coverage of general teaching methods and models. The most balanced text in its field, it covers all major teaching models plus the executive skills of teaching including planning, classroom management, assessment, motivation, and use/management of time and space. Each chapter opens with a discussion of the research base plus how to do action research in the classroom. "Theoretical and Empirical Support" sections in each chapter provide a broad sampling of the knowledge base that underlies and supports the recommended teaching practices found in the latter part of each chapter. Students are shown why a recommended procedure or principle works the way it does, not just how to execute it effectively. The easily referenced 30-page Resource Handbook at the end of the book provides detailed information on (1) Reading and Using Research, (2) Action Research for Classroom Teachers, and (3) Learning and Study Strategies.
