Summary

Integrating theory and research with current classroom practice, Dynamics of Effective Secondary Teaching, 6th edition, helps future secondary teachers make informed instructional, curricular, management, and assessment decisions.

Realistic scenarios, numerous examples, and illustrations from all subject areas, classroom observation forms, sample lesson plans, and valuable websites are what make this text indispensable, providing the preservice teacher with a direct link to classroom practice. As with previous editions, the authors emphasize decision-making as a fundamental process for educators, skillfully balancing findings from research on effective teaching with the ideas of constructivism.

Unique to this book is the inclusion in each chapter of a scenario in which a middle or secondary school teacher, representing a wide range of subject areas and grade levels, applies key ideas to the classroom. These scenarios, which appear near the beginning of each chapter, are referred to and analyzed throughout the chapter to provide a running commentary on the theoretical content being presented. The theoretical content is further illuminated through lesson plans that demonstrate specific instructional methods, journal prompts, and classroom applications.
