Instruction: A Models Approach, 6th Edition
By Thomas H. Estes, Susan L. Mintz, Mary Alice Gunter

Description

This classroom-ready resource makes instructional models clear and relevant for readers by placing them within a standards-based and instructionally aligned process.

 

Instruction: A Models Approach closely links more than ten instructional models based on current research and evidence-based practice to the preparation of objectives, differentiation practices, and assessment options.

 

The text includes scenarios of the models in both elementary and secondary classrooms, lesson plans for both elementary and secondary classes in a variety of content areas, and detailed steps for implementing the model using evidence based instructional strategies. Attention is paid to when and how the models can be used in particular contexts with specific skills and knowledge.
