Models of Learning, Tools for Teaching

    By

    Review of the previous edition: "This powerful book makes many of its points through the use of case studies and examples. Rarely, if ever, has discussion of so wide a variety of approaches to learning been gathered together in a single volume." British Journal of Educational TechnologyThe new edition of this bestselling text provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to an array of models of teaching and learning.Written in a clear, engaging and accessible style, the authors offer a wide range of teaching strategies that have been developed, polished and studied over the last thirty years. Rather than being formulas to be followed word-for-word, each model draws teachers into the study of how students learn, promoting reflective action research in the classroom.Some of the models have been proven not only to accelerate learning, but also to allow pupils to engage in alternative modes of inquiry, which have been almost impossible to generate through traditional chalk-and-talk teaching.Updated features include: A foreword by Estelle Morris A new chapter on teaching adolescents with disabilities to read A wealth of new scenarios and examples with clear guidelines for implementation A new synectics study New research and illustrations A revised Picture Word Inductive Model Revisions and updates to ten chapters Updated appendix on Peer Coaching Guides Models of Learning, Tools for Teaching is an essential text for trainee teachers, practitioners, advisors, inspectors and teacher educators.
