Jones, Jennifer L.; Jones, Karrie A.; Vermette, Paul J.
Educational Forum, v77 n2 p199-206 2013
As teachers attempt to sustain meaningful school change, the need for visionary yet feasible reform becomes profound. To help reach this end, this article examines the ideas of Willingham and Perkins for principles of effective teaching and learning. While seemingly divergent in their approaches for reform, examination of their collective ideas in light of current educational research provides applicable classroom strategies for teachers of all levels.
