Secondary and Middle School Teaching Methods - 7th edition

Secondary and Middle School Teaching Methods (ISBN10: 0023228717; ISBN13: 9780023228711)
ISBN13: 978-0023228711
ISBN10: 0023228717

Summary: The reality of teaching in today's diverse, technologically sophisticated classrooms comes alive in this text...one that presents concrete guidelines for preparation of instruction, and of the instructional setting. Well-known for its clear and straightforward presentation, this text gives future teachers a firm foundation on which to build a personal teaching style. Separate chapters examine strategies for general teaching, adaptive instruction, and using computers,
media, and other tools provided by modern technology. Explanations are always accompanied by a discussion of why some techniques succeed and others fail. Discussions of strategies are always backed by a rationale for their use. Text organization flows from background topics, through set-up ideas, to the specifics of day-to-day teaching...giving students a realistic feel for the decision- making involved in classroom teaching, and the interdependence of functions.

NEW--Thorough updating throughout the text brings students abreast of the latest thinking in the field. Included is: New material on teaching diverse student populations, including techniques for adapting to differing learning styles and backgrounds.
Thorough examination of current "best practices" as they relate to classroom use of computers, video tapes, television, and other high-tech teaching aids.
New coverage of research into direct versus indirect teaching and learning. Strong discussion of professionalism speaks directly to student concerns about such issues as ethics, legal rights and responsibilities, working with parents, and the classroom teacher's position in the total educational system.

In-chapter pedagogical features include overview, outline, summary, discussion and study questions, and a supplemental readings list.

Study and discussion questions, along with exercises, are woven into the narrative to stimulate interest and reinforce concepts.

Appendixes on field experiences and getting started as a teacher offer concrete assistance future teachers can take with them into their first classrooms.
