Learning and Teaching Research-Based Methods by Don Kauchak, Paul Eggen

Learning and Teaching Research-Based Methods



Learning and Teaching Research-Based Methods by Don Kauchak, Paul Eggen

One of the most up-to-date, research-based methods books available today, Learning and Teaching: Research-Based Methods has two specific goals: to change how teachers think about teaching and to change how they actually teach. Solidly grounded in research, the sixth edition describes effective teaching strategies for all P-12 students in a clear, accessible manner, with numerous case examples, and offers suggestions for applying those methods in today's diverse school environments. Kauchak and Eggen organize their discussion around three important themes in education: diversity, motivation, and technology.
