Description

The sixth edition of Methods for Effective Teaching provides the most current research-based coverage of teaching methods for K-12 classrooms on the market today. In a straightforward, user-friendly tone, the expert author team writes to prepare current and future educators to be effective in meeting the needs of all the students they teach.  In this new edition, all content is carefully aligned to professional standards, including the recently revised InTASC standards. Uniquely emphasizing today’s contemporary issues, such as both teacher-centered and student-centered strategies; a myriad of ways to differentiate instruction, promote student thinking, and actively engage students in learning; approaches for teaching English language learners, and an added emphasis on culturally responsive teaching, this highly-regarded textbook is the perfect combination of sound teaching methods and cutting edge content.
