In this new volume, one of the most influential voices in education today translates a century of educational and related research into practical classroom applications that will help your students meet the challenges they will face in the classrooms! Beginning with the teacher decision-making model developed at the UCLA Laboratory School, Enhancing Teaching explores psychological, neurological, and educational research from the turn of the century to the present day. It examines decision making as it happens in the classroom, and shows how research findings can enhance decisions made in the areas of content, learning behavior, and teaching techniques. In the content chapters, task analysis and pupil diagnosis are described in detail, along with ways to teach concepts, generalizations, and discriminations in a manner that encourages critical and creative thinking. In the learning behavior chapters, findings of recent brain research, observational learning techniques, and the theory of "lesson design" are applied directly to what happens in actual classrooms, every day. Finally, in the teaching behavior chapters, prospective teachers discover practical tools for increasing motivation, improving the rate and degree of learning, and boosting retention and transfer of that learning to new situations that require creative problem-solving and productive, satisfying decisions.
