Summary

For General Secondary Methods, Student Teaching/Field Experiences courses, and Alternative Certification courses.

Based on twenty-five years' experience, this clear, reader-friendly methods text provides an overview of the most essential information needed in order to understand how best to teach in the secondary classroom. The text's eleven targeted chapters distill a vast amount of information down to critical fundamentals, while still incorporating pertinent current research and tying practice to national standards. Chapters are organized to focus, first, on the student who is becoming a teacher; next, on the students he or she will teach; and, finally, on the challenge of creating and implementing meaningful, effective instruction. The result is a practical resource that can help soon-to-be-teachers begin the process of becoming experts in their chosen profession.
