Hunt, Gilbert H.; Wiseman, Dennis G.; Touzel, Timothy J.

Schools today have transcended from the chalkboard to the whiteboard and are populated by students who are not frightened to use the technology of this new age of learning. During this period of dynamic change, teachers must be ready to meet the challenges of preparing students for a global society characterized by diversity and ever-increasing expectations. Effective teachers in the new millennium must prepare their students to function in a complex society of increasing knowledge, changing needs, and endless opportunities for individuals who leave school knowing how to learn on their own and solve problems in a dynamic environment. During this climate of change, this new edition has been prepared to meet the needs of both current and future teachers. The text defines the best practice research that forms the basis for development of the teacher as an effective practitioner and then proceeds through discussions of planning for instruction, communicating as professionals, and research-based teaching behaviors and strategies. Also included is a comprehensive discussion of managing student behavior and assessing student performance. Specifically, the text offers recommendations for planning, providing instruction, classroom management, and the evaluation and reporting of student progress. The book serves as a significant resource in providing educators with guidance, direction, and insight in achieving success in effective teaching. Following a preface, this book contains the following chapters: (1) Developing a Framework for Effective Teaching; (2) The Teacher as a Planner of Instruction; (3) The Teacher as a Communicator; (4) The Teacher as an Effective Performer; (5) The Teacher as an Instructional Strategist: Direct Instruction; (6) The Teacher as an Instructional Strategist: Indirect Instruction; (7) The Teacher as a Manager of Student Behavior; and (8) The Teacher as an Evaluator of Student Performance. References and an index are also included. [For the third edition, see ED434984.]
