Targeted teaching : strategies for secondary teaching by Tremaine Baker( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new text challenges the idea that there is a "best way" to teach. Instead, the authors explain a more pragmatic approach is required. Teachers need a range of skills and strategies to select from, work with and adapt. Every school, cohort, class, and child is different. Beyond that, strategies that worked well with a class one week, may prove ineffective the next. This book: -Presents a range of strategies, well grounded in research, for trainees and beginning teachers to use in their own classroom settings and contexts -Presents a model of teaching that views teaching not as a profession in which there is always a single correct answer, but as a complex interaction between teacher and students -Addresses common issues that beginning teachers face when developing their practice. If you are a teacher wanting to find out what works best for your class, in your school, right now, this text will show you how to harness the power of small or large scale research to help you find the answer. --Amazon.com
