Show synopsis Research has highlighted the central role that teachers play in determining the quality of learning in classrooms. Teachers exert a powerful influence on both student achievement and motivation, and these influences are more convincingly documented in the research literature that they were a decade ago. Knowledge of the research will make teachers more effective professionals inside and outside the classroom. Expert authors have over 40 years of combined experience teaching and researching. The goal of this book is to translate the results of research into methods that teachers at any level could use to increase their learning. It brings together two areas of educational literature: 1) research on how teaching influences learning and 2) teaching methodology that stresses desirable teaching procedures. This book is aimed at teachers of any level - elementary, junior high, middle school, and high school. It also is appropriate for school libraries and district personnel responsible for teacher, professional, or staff development.
