A Resource Guide for Elementary School Teaching is a practical, comprehensive, and concise methods text designed to engage readers in “hands-on” and “minds-on” learning about effective teaching. Each chapter contains an abundance of application exercises on perforated pages that provide opportunities to practice what is learned and to reflect on the progress teachers are making toward their professional competence. Its rich, practical, timely topics include planning, class management (including culturally responsive classrooms), teaching strategies, integrated technology/media, assessment, and more. The user-friendly format presents readers with a valuable resource that transcends its use in college coursework alone by offering strategies that can be easily applied in elementary classrooms, and its practical approach provides hands-on activities, exercises, and strategies for student teaching and field experiences.

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.From the Back Cover:
