Teaching Strategies. A Guide to Better Instruction.
Orlich, Donald C.; And Others
This book provides proven teaching methods, coupled with the best of instructional theory, and is intended for use in undergraduate courses that teach instructional methods or techniques. A brief introduction to schooling and broad educational goals is offered in the first chapter. The following four chapters present the basic "tools" for effective and systematic teaching. The major topics include specifying instructional objectives; sequencing learning activities; applying the various taxonomies; preparing lesson plans; and application of the fundamentals. The last five chapters present instruction as a dynamic theme being applied in a social system, with the realities of interaction being foremost. The final chapter views classroom management from four different perspectives, stressing the underlying tenet of the book--teacher decision making. Each chapter has a set of intended learner outcomes. The formative evaluation components in each chapter give the student immediate feedback on the extent to which the intended objectives were met. Examples of all teaching strategies are provided in a variety of instructional contexts. (JD)
