Description

One of the most up-to-date, research-based methods texts available today, Learning and Teaching: Research-Based Methods has two specific goals: to change how teachers think about teaching and to change how they actually teach.

 

Solidly grounded in research, the sixth edition describes effective teaching strategies for all P-12 students in a clear, readable manner, with numerous case examples, and offers suggestions for applying those methods in today's diverse school environments. Kauchak and Eggen organize their discussion around three important themes in education: diversity, motivation, and technology.
