2 Reviews
This text describes teaching strategies that can be used by teachers and trainers in all instructional settings: primary, secondary and vocational as well as other post-school education. It will be particularly useful for student education teachers, both as a text for their theoretical studies and as a reference source during their practical teaching years. The text examines a number of different teaching strategies including direct instruction, discussion, small-group work, cooperative learning, problemsolving, student research, role play and student writing. Additionally, this edition covers new developments in the area of teaching and learning (such as reflective practice) and outcomes-based education - an increasing trend in education. These changes will bring the text in line with the requirements in preservice education and the classroom. The text also covers up-to-date issues such as bullying and ethical relationships between teachers and students.
