This study guide helps a student become a more effective classroom teacher and maximizes the ability to retain the material and apply it through the use of effective study skills, specifically the "SQ4R study system."

The study guide is divided into four parts and the format of the Dembo book: Part 1 contains 4 chapters dealing with development and individual differences and discusses intelligence and cognitive development; cognition, culture, and language; social and personal development; and exceptional children. Part 2 covers learning theories and instructional applications and includes a discussion on behavioral approaches to learning, cognitive approaches to learning, and the humanistic perspective. Part 3 deals with preparation for effective teaching and offers chapters on planning for instruction, motivation, and classroom management and discipline.
