This K-12 teaching methods text translates cognitive principles of learning into teaching strategies. Each research-based model, or teaching strategy, is illustrated with a chapter-opening case study and described in terms of planning, implementing, and evaluation. As in past editions, the fourth edition of Strategies for Teachers continues to focus on instruction, using a models approach, linking prescriptive teaching strategies to specific content and thinking goals. This edition is composed of two main parts: the first two chapters outline advances in effective teaching and the teaching of thinking. The remaining chapters offer detailed coverage of the individual models, including suggestions for modifications that make them adaptable to a variety of teaching-learning situations. The focus is on active learning, the use of research, psychology and experience, and emphasizes the teacher's central role in the learning process. New chapters on social interaction models and problem-based learning explain and illustrate applications of these models in classrooms. For anyone who teaches k-12 students or who is interested in models of teaching, approaches to instruction, or curriculum and instruction.
