Cary Buzzelli and Bill Johnson reinvigorate the enduring question: What is the place of morality in the classroom? Departing from notions of a morality that can only be abstract and absolute, these authors ground their investigation in analyses of actual teacher-student interactions. This approach illuminates the ways in which language, power and culture impact "the moral" in teaching. Buzzelli and Johnson's study addresses a wide range of moral issues in various classroom contexts. Its practical and diverse examples make it a valuable resource for teachers and teacher development programs.

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.

Explores instructional planning, strategy implementation, discipline, legal issues, and both student and teacher evaluation. Reflects the latest developments in cognitive learning theory, the constructivist approach to learning, social/interactive learning, the current school funding environment, and the growing diversity of the student population. Emphasizes an eclectic model of teaching which encourages readers to choose effective approaches from a variety of possible teaching models.

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.
