To accommodate the evolution of teacher education programs, this new text has been developed for two groups: 1) those serving as interns or student teachers as they complete traditional teacher education programs and 2) new in-service teachers who are part of an alternative certification program. This team of experienced educators and authors offers users a set of very practical tools, skills, and advice that they can put into immediate use in the field. The authors also aim to provoke a high level of engagement and interaction with the program. Retaining the hallmark reader-friendly style and format of the best-selling Ryan/Cooper texts, Teaching for Student Learning's 3-hole punched and perforated format, with 25 brief, to-the-point chapters ("modules"), makes it easy for busy teachers to quickly find, understand, and use key information related to their most pressing needs. Accompanying CL Video Cases available on the Online Teaching and Study Centers are directly tied to the text and allow students to see the concepts in the text brought to life in real classrooms.
