Summary

Continuing the tradition of excellence, Distinguished Teaching Professor Pam Farris joins with leading experts to offer pre- and in-service teachers an accessible blend of theory and practice for involving students in their learning. NCSS Standards act as the foundation of the text's interdisciplinary and multicultural focus, and Standards-Linked Lesson Plans are included within the chapters. The Fifth Edition provides practical yet creative ideas to stimulate students' interest, help them become good decision makers, use previously gained knowledge as a scaffold for further learning, develop a positive self-concept, gain an appreciation for the aesthetics of a subject, and become productive citizens.

Outstanding features include:

  • ''In the Classroom'' boxes offer enrichment and teaching ideas.
  • Examples of student work appear throughout the text.
  • Up-to-date, annotated reading lists identify age-appropriate books for diverse learners.
  • Web sites and WebQuests are listed throughout the text and at the end of each chapter.
  • Strategies for teaching students with special needs provide guidance for inclusive education.
  • Field-tested classroom activities serve as examples of how to offer students enjoyable and challenging learning experiences.
