Summary

This K-12 teaching methods text opens each chapter with case studies illustrating the model in actual classroom practice and translates cognitive principles of learning into teaching strategies.As in past editions, the fourth edition of Strategies for Teachers continues to focus on instruction, using a models approach, linking prescriptive teaching strategies to specific content and thinking goals. This edition is composed of two main parts: the first two chapters outline advances in effective teaching and the teaching of thinking. The remaining chapters offer detailed coverage of the individual models, including suggestions for modifications that make them adaptable to a variety of teaching-learning situations. The text focuses on active learning, the use of research, psychology and experience, and emphasizes the teacher's central role in the learning process. New chapters on social interaction models and problem-based learning explain and illustrate applications of these models in classrooms. The practicality of this text is one of its key selling points, promising to make the fourth edition as vital a tool for instructors and students as the previous editions have been.
