Three recently published books intended to help both new and experienced college teachers with their teaching methods and skills are given brief but favorable reviews. "The Art and Craft of Teaching" (edited by Margaret Morganroth Gullette) includes chapters and essays on teaching methods, the first day of class, lecturing, questioning in discussion classes, being a section leader, teaching throughout a semester, and grading. "A Practical Handbook for College Teachers" (by Barbara Schneider Fuhrmann and Anthony F. Grasha) is a well-organized, thorough book which explores college teaching from every aspect. It includes tests for self-analysis and discusses a variety of nontraditional subjects such as behavioral, humanistic, and cognitive perspectives on teaching; the role of personal values in influencing teaching; and the matching of learning and teaching styles. "On Teaching and Learning in College" (by Paul L. Dressel and Dora Marcus) examines the overemphasis in undergraduate school on having students master a discipline rather than having them learn how to learn. The authors discuss ways of helping students develop a learning framework which allows them to become lifelong learners without being dependent on formal education for that learning. (DC)
