Teaching: Issues, Perspectives, and Definitions. Selected Readings.
Carney, Magdalene M., Ed.; And Others
This volume of readings is a basic survey of issues and perspectives concerning the nature of teaching. Part one is composed of four articles containing perspectives on the need for educational theory. Two of the authors contend that educational theories emerge from education, while the other two authors are more positive in their conception of the nature and function of theory in educational practice. Part two contains nine articles on Perspectives on teaching, learning, and instruction. Some of the topics discussed are psychological conceptions of teaching, defining good teaching, the use of concepts in teaching and learning, the role of content in learning, theories of instruction, and a conceptual model of instruction. The final article presents the American National Institutes for Social Advancement (ANISA) perspectives on the nature of teaching. A list of references is included in this book. Appended is a summary statement on the ANISA model. (RC)
