Teaching Strategies is an introductory core text known for its down-to-earth, practical approach to the most commonly used classroom teaching strategies, including lesson planning, questioning, and small group and cooperative learning tactics. Both novice and experienced teachers alike find the text a valuable source of educational strategies. The Seventh Edition features key content updates and beneficial organizational changes. The authors streamlined Chapter 1 to focus on three key topics: the social context of teaching, diversity in schools, and reflective teaching and decision-making. Chapter 3 contains a new section, "Converting Standards to Objectives," which discusses the process of converting state and national standards into concrete learning objectives. New authors Michael Trevisan and Abbie Brown provide up-to-date insights and ideas in the Seventh Edition. "Technology Insight" boxes explore technology-related issues and provide links to relevant Internet sources. Topics covered in this feature include the validity and reliability of information and computer simulations." A companion web site for students includes ACE self-tests, additional reflection questions, and web links. A companion web site for instructors provides additional resources, such as model syllabi, recent research, PowerPoint slides, and an online IRM.
