This substantially revised third edition represents one of the most up-to-date research-based methods texts available today. Kauchak and Eggen organize their discussion around three important themes in education: diversity, motivation, and technology. Coverage of new realities in the classroom, such as using social interaction, fostering resilience in at-risk students, and inclusion help new teachers face responsibilities being asked of them. Solidly grounded in research, the text describes practical methods in a clear, readable manner with numerous cases and offers suggestions for applying those methods in today's diverse school environments.

Succinct, engaging writing translates a strong research base to synthesize effective classroom practice.

Features introductory case studies which begin each chapter and anchor the ideas within it.

Additional vignettes reference opening case to reinforce new concepts.

Provides an opportunity for students to apply chapter content through end-of-chapter cases and discussion questions.

Offers concrete suggestions for trying chapter concepts in real classroom settings through the "Applying it in the Schools" feature.
