The seventh edition of Models of Teachingis written to be the core of the theory/practice aspect of the K-12 teacher education program. It covers the rationale and research on the major models of teaching and applies the models by using scenarios and examples of instructional materials. Because it deals with the major psychological and philosophical approaches to teaching and schooling, Models of Teachingprovides a direct link between educational foundations and student teaching. Therefore, the book can provide substantial support to programs taking a ;reflective teaching ; or constructivist approach.

Table of Contents

Frame of Reference
We begin with the idea of giving students the tools that increase their capacity for learning
The primary role of education is to increase student capacity for personal growth, social growth, and academic learning
Models of Teaching is an avenue to liberate student learning capacity and, by doing so, to help teachers take charge of their lives as teachers
Beginning the Inquiry
Creating Communities of Expert Learners
On the whole, students are in schools and classes within those schools
Both need to be developed into learning communities and provided with the models of learning that enable them to become expert learners
We study how to build those learning communities
Where Models of Teaching Come From
Multiple Ways of Constructing Knowledge
The history of teacher researchers comes to us in the form of models of teaching that enable us to construct vital environments for our students
Models have come from the ages and from teacher-researchers who have invented new ways of teaching
Some of these are submitted to research and development and how teachers can learn to use them
Those are the models that are included in this book
Studying the Slowly-Growing Knowledge Base in Education
A Basic Guide Through the Rhetorical Thickets
We draw on descriptive studies, experimental studies, and experience to give us a fine beginning to what will eventually become a research-based profession
Here we examine what we have learned about how to design good instruction and effective curriculums
And, we learn how to avoid some destructive practices
Models of Teaching and Teaching Styles
Three Sides of TeachingStyles, Models, and Diversity
We are people and our personalities greatly affect the environments that our students experience
And, as we use various models of teaching our selves -- our natural styles -- color how those models work in the thousands of classrooms in our society
Moreover, those models and our styles affect the achievement of the diverse students in our classes and schools
The Information-Processing Family of Models
How can we and our students best acquire information, organize it, and explain it? for thousands of years philosophers, educators, psychologists, and artists have developed ways to gather and process information
Here are several live ones
Learning to Think Inductively
Forming Concepts by Collecting and Organizing Information
Human beings are born to build concepts
The vast intake of information is sifted and organized and the conceptual structures that guide our lives are developed
The inductive model builds on and enhances the inborn capacity of our students
Attaining Concepts
Sharpening Basic Thinking Skills
Students can develop concepts
They also can learn concepts developed by others
Concept attainment teaches students how to learn and use concepts and develop and test hypotheses
The Picture-Word Inductive Model
Developing Literacy across the Curriculum
Built on the language experience approach, the picture-word inductive model enables beginning readers to develop sight vocabularies, learn to inquire into the structure of words and sentences, write sentences and paragraphs, and, thus, to be powerful language learners
In Chapter 19 the outstanding results from primary curriculums and curriculums for older struggling readers are displayed
