About

Overview

Designed for beginning teachers, CLASSROOM TEACHING SKILLS, Tenth Edition, conceptualizes the effective teacher as a "reflective decision maker," responsible for planning, implementing, evaluating, and making management decisions in the classroom. Each chapter considers a particular teaching skill, first discussing the theory behind it, and then presenting the reader with practice situations in which knowledge about the skill can be applied and evaluated. The Tenth Edition continues to address the importance of core InTASC standards (matched with learning objectives for each chapter), while incorporating more extensive coverage on technology, Common Core State Standards, and working with English Language Learners. In addition, new "Voices from the Classroom" and "Case Study" features as well as the popular TeachSource Videos help readers better understand the issues they may encounter as teachers. Available with InfoTrac® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

Features and Benefits

  • Marginal notations throughout the text identify content related to InTASC standards as well as key ideas, assisting students with comprehension and review.
  • TeachSource Videos, which can be viewed at Education CourseMate, the book's website, are integrated into the book. These short videos present real classroom scenarios that enable students to observe the day-to-day challenges and rewards of teaching.
  • Core InTASC standards are addressed in regard to each chapter's objectives. A correlation table that links chapters and standards is located on the inside front cover of the text, making it easy for students to see where and how InTASC standards are addressed.
  • Practical and applied, the book has a format that requires students to actively participate in its exercises, and consequently build skills that they will be able to put to work immediately in the classroom.
  • Each chapter addresses a particular teaching skill, and is written by a recognized authority on the topic. Topics include, among others, assessment, culturally responsive teaching, cooperative learning, and issues of behavior management in the classroom.
