Effective Teaching. Principles and Practice.
Kourilsky, Marilyn; Quaranta, Lory
This book is for both teachers in training and those already in the classroom. It covers the underlying skills necessary for curriculum development, focusing on initiating, developing, implementing, and evaluating written lesson and unit plans. In addition, the book presents a wide range of instructional strategies, from the lecture method to experience-based instruction, with an emphasis on translating each strategy into classroom practice. Learning principles and classroom discipline techniques are also explored because they play a pivotal role in the creation of a successful classroom. A set of practice activities based on the key instructional concepts and classroom applications presented in the text are appended, as well as a set of worksheets and blank forms that may be used in assessing, planning, and executing instruction.
