The Professional Teacher's Handbook. Second Edition. A Guide for Improving Instruction in Today's Middle and Secondary Schools.
Hoover, Kenneth H.
This is a comprehensive handbook of instructional methodology for teachers in middle and secondary schools. It is divided into four major units: (1) preinstructional activities; (2) conventional methods and techniques: focus upon the individual; (3) conventional methods and techniques: focus upon the group; and (4) contemporary instructional developments and trends. Each unit contains a selected bibliography and listings of films, filmstrips, overhead transparencies, and free and inexpensive learning materials. A list of general sources of free and inexpensive learning materials is also provided. This is an updated looseleaf edition of an earlier work by the same author. New material consists of four chapters on the subjects of (1) maintaining effective class control: discipline problems; (2) developmental reading techniques; (3) drill or practice procedures; (4) evaluation and reporting procedures. The new chapters reflect the current trend toward increased emphasis on the basics of teaching and learning. Each chapter features basic, fundamental properties; a basic instructional procedure; values and limitations; and method illustrations in different subject fields. (JD)
