This popular elementary methods text is a comprehensive, easy-to-follow resource whose wealth of information for improving classroom instruction makes it so much more than a textbook. The new edition has been thoroughly redone, to better help students meet the enormous challenges facing elementary teachers today in such areas as multicultural teaching, national curriculum standards, thematic teaching, cooperative learning, technology in schools, authentic assessment, and the professional employability portfolio. Joined with this excellent new coverage, and still the core of the text, are a wealth of applications--oriented, informal "practice teaching" activities--that get students involved in situations much like those they will encounter on-the-job. The authors offer thorough coverage of strategy implementation, instructional planning, legal issues, classroom management, discipline, and evaluation of both students and their teachers. By combining this strong coverage with hands-on exercises and a workbook-style format, A Resource Guide for Elementary School Teaching, Third Edition again provides an outstanding vehicle for starting students on their way to successful teaching.About the Author:
