The Seventh Edition of Models of Teaching is written to be the core of the theory/practice aspect of the K-12 teacher education program.

Widely considered to be the classic models text in the field, the Seventh Edition covers the rationale and research on the major models of teaching and applies the models by using scenarios and examples of instructional materials. These models have shown to accelerate student learning and act as lifelong learning tools.

Because it deals with the major psychological and philosophical approaches to teaching and schooling, Models of Teaching provides a direct link between educational foundations and student teaching. Therefore, the book can provide substantial support to programs taking a "reflective teaching" or constructivist approach.

In this age of school reform, educators are searching for the best programs and practices that show strong evidence of positive effects on student achievement. Models of Teaching has been and continues to be of great interest to these educators because research on the use of various models of teaching and the positive changes in student achievement are well documented in this classic text.


  • Most chapters either open with or contain at least one scenario, putting the instructional model into the context of the classroom.
  • Provides an abundance of both classic and contemporary teaching models classified into four families for ease of use: Social, Information-Processing, Personal, and Behavioral Systems.
  • Each family classification of models ends with a chapter that focuses on inquiry and includes much of the new research supporting each family of models.
  • Peer-coaching guides are included to facilitate planning for practice with the most commonly used models of teaching and to provide formats for observing demonstration and peer practice (Appendix).
  • Within each model, the authors provide suggestions for putting the teaching strategies to use in the classroom through applications and through the use of a summary chart.
  • Tables and figures are used whenever possible to break up the text and summarize important information for visual learners.
