The Craft of Teaching: A Guide to Mastering the Professor's Art. Second Edition.
Eble, Kenneth E.
An update of a 1976 classic on college teaching, this book offers insights and practical advice on such things as how students learn, classroom skills, and testing. This edition includes new chapters on critical thinking, motivating students and faculty, the impact of computer-aided instruction, and mentoring, as well as "myths" of teaching. Part 1, Teaching and Learning, covers the author's stance, the mythology of teaching, and getting students to think. In part 2, The Skills of Teaching, topics include: why the classroom; making classes work; the lecture as discourse; discussion; seminars, tutorials, advising, and mentoring; and teaching without teachers. The Grubby Stuff and Dirty Work of part 3 refers to textbooks, assignments, tests, grades, cheating, confrontations and other situations, and motivating students and faculty. In part 4, Learning To Teach, the focus is on preparing college teachers, and being a teacher. One hundred ninety references are included. (LB)
