Models of Teaching

by Bruce Joyce, Marsha Weil and Emily Calhoun

With the current emphasis on standards-based education, teachers everywhere are searching for programs and practices that have the strongest positive effect on student achievement. Since its initial publication in 1972, Models of Teaching, now in its eighth edition, has been considered the classic text in the field. Rationale and research pair with real-world examples and applications to provide a strong foundation for new educators. The thoroughly documented research on the various models of teaching (and their subsequent positive effects on student success) give teachers the tools they need to build strong classrooms that accelerate student learning. Encompassing all of the major psychological and philosophical approaches to teaching and schooling, this new edition of a classic text is at the core of a successful K-12 teacher education program.
