Strategic Teaching and Learning: Cognitive Instruction in the Content Areas.
Jones, Beau Fly, Ed.; And Others
This collection of essays focuses on the "strategic teaching" model of cognitive instruction, a model which makes clear the complex thinking process that teaching is, highlights the importance of the teaching/learning connection, and aims at enabling all types of students to become successful learners. The papers consider the varied levels at which content can be learned and emphasize the choice of appropriate strategies for effective cognitive instruction. The book's first part contains three papers, written by the editors (Beau Fly Jones, Annemarie Sullivan Palincsar, Donna Sederburg Ogle, and Eileen Glynn Carr), respectively entitled "Learning and Thinking,""Strategic Thinking: A Cognitive Focus," and "Planning for Strategic Teaching: An Example." These papers provide generic planning guides that may be used to sequence curriculum and instruction in various content areas for each phase of instruction. Part II contains four papers: (1) "Strategic Teaching in Science" (Charles W. Anderson); (2) "Strategic Teaching in Social Studies" (Donna Alvermann); (3) "Strategic Teaching in Mathematics" (Mary Montgomery Lindquist); and (4) "Strategic Teaching in Literature" (Richard Beach). Each chapter in Part II contains guidelines for planning that are adaptations of the generic guides offered in Part I. (CB)
