Teaching Strategiesis an introductory core text known for its practical, applied help with commonly used classroom teaching strategies and tactics. Accommodating both traditional and non-traditional education students as well as site-based teacher education programs, the text focuses on topics such as lesson-planning, questioning, and small-group and cooperative-learning strategies. Continuing its hallmark strength--solid coverage of teaching strategies and applications--this new edition includes even more teaching applications and a new feature that highlights real-life voices from the field. New!Chapter 1: "The Professional Challenges of Teaching" focuses on the teacher's role as a professional and introduces key overarching topics such as meeting standards, working with diverse students, and decision making. New!Professional Voices from the Fieldfeatures illustrate topics in the text through real-world case studies in which teachers describe methods or strategies that they have used in their own classrooms. New!HM Video Cases, 4- to 6-minute clips of actual classroom scenarios, illustrate key topics in the text and are easily accessible to students on the Online Study Center. Correlated with the text by means of a marginal icon, the Video Case material in the text includes reflection questions. Increased standards coverage now features INTASC, PRAXIS II, and NCATE correlation charts inside the textbook covers. A California State Standards correlation chart will also be included for texts sold in California. Technology Insightboxes appear in each chapter to further emphasize technology-related issues. These boxes have been updated to include new information on such topics as cooperative learning with multimedia technology and using gradebook software. Improved pedagogy, including more reflection questions, enhanced marginal notes, and redesigned chapter-opening graphic organizers helps facilitate student comprehension and recall.
