This publication comprehensively covers lesson planning, implementation and execution. While the author writes with an excellent contextual understanding about the role of a teacher (connecting, forming relationships, assisting learning and allowing student to pick up life-long learning skills) the key approach of the text involves recognising and encompassing diversity, in terms of teacher roles and inclusivity through effective planning of classroom activities. This title has been developed to assist pre-service teachers to understand the fundamentals of teaching and how to apply this understanding through the lesson. Each chapter describes the relevant theoretical bases and is tailored towards particular learning outcomes.

On Becoming an Effective Teacher describes exemplary practices like Teach For America, which highlight the power of person-centered teaching to bring about higher student achievement and emotional intelligence. Lyon situates the classic with the cutting-edge, integrating wisdom with research, anecdote with practical advice, to find truths that reveal paths toward effective teaching. Jeffrey Cornelius-White, Psy.D., LPC, Professor of Counseling, Missouri State University, USA, Author of Learner Centered Instruction: Building Relationships for Student Success This fascinating book reveals through current research and contemporary applications that Carl Rogers’ pioneering and radical approach to education is as relevant today as it was in the 1970s and ‘80s. Brian Thorne, University of East Anglia, UK Carl Rogers is one of the most influential psychologists of the twentieth century. His influence is similarly outstanding in the fields of education, counselling, psychotherapy, conflict resolution, and peace. On Becoming an Effective Teacher presents the final unpublished writings of Rogers and as such has, not only unique historical value, but also a vital message for today’s educational crises, and can be read as a prescription against violence in our schools. It documents the research results of four highly relevant, related but independent studies which comprise the biggest collection of data ever accumulated to test a person-centred theory in the field of education. This body of comprehensive research on effective teaching was accomplished over a twenty-year period in 42 U.S. States and in six other countries including the UK, Germany, Brazil, Canada, Israel, and Mexico and is highly relevant to the concerns of teachers, psychologists, students, and parents. The principal findings of the research in this book show that teachers and schools can significantly improve their effectiveness through programs focusing on facilitative interpersonal relationships. Teachers who either naturally have, or are trained to have empathy, genuineness (congruence), and who prize their students (positive regard) create an important level of trust in the classroom and exert significant positive effects on student outcomes including achievement scores, interpersonal functioning, self-concept, attendance, and violence. The dialogues between Rogers and Lyon offer a unique and timeless perspective on teaching, counselling and learning. The work of Reinhard Tausch on person-centered teaching for counselors, parents, athletics, and even textbook materials, and the empathic interactions of teachers and students, is among the most thorough and rigorous research ever accomplished on the significance and potential of a person-centered approach to teaching and learning. This pioneering textbook is highly relevant to educational psychologists and researchers, as well as those in undergraduate and graduate university courses in education, teacher training, counseling, psychology and educational psychology.

Over the years, classroom management remains one of the greatest educational concerns of teachers, administrators, and parents. This practical resource for developing and upgrading personal classroom management skills and systems addresses that concern and will prove to be an invaluable guide for preservice and practicing educators. Utilizing a balanced approach based on both scholarship and experience, Becoming an Effective Classroom Manager provides a discussion of models of management, a summary of effectiveness research and related management techniques, as well as coverage of routine and more complex managerial concerns and procedures. Steere's approach is multi-faceted, interweaving three areas of concern: prevention of disciplinary problems, dealing/coping with disciplinary problems, and development of techniques for insuring that problems do not recur. The book is filled with suggestions and techniques that have been successfully utilized in public school classrooms. The author argues that institutions of higher learning must produce teachers who are equally adept and confident in their teaching methods, management skills, and their subject matter. His work will help teachers become not only better managers, but more effective teachers as well.

"This is one of the most interesting texts I have read for many years ... It is authoritative and clearly written. It provides a rich set of examples of teaching, and a reflective discourse." Professor George Brown ..."succeeds in inspiring the reader by making the process of reflective learning interesting and thought provoking ... has a narrative drive which makes it a book too good to put down." Dr Mary Thorpe ..."a delightful and unusual reflective journey...the whole book is driven by a cycle of questions, examples, strategies and generalizations from the examples. In all, it is the clearest example of practise-what-you-preach that I have seen." Professor John Biggs This unusual, accessible and significant book begins each chapter by posing a question with which college and university teachers can be expected to identify; and then goes on to answer the question by presenting a series of examples; finally, each chapter closes with 'second thoughts', presenting a viewpoint somewhat distinct from that taken by John Cowan. This book will assist university teachers to plan and run innovative activities to enable their students to engage in effective reflective learning; it will help them adapt other teachers' work for use with their own students; and will give them a rationale for the place of reflective teaching and learning in higher education.

"This innovative and readable book is not something to be cherry-picked for quick hints and tips. It is a work to be read and re-read and savoured for its humanity, sagacity, practicality and reflection upon the all-important relationships between teaching and learning and the teacher and the learner." British Journal of Educational Technology "...a delightful and unusual reflective journey...the whole book is driven by a cycle of questions, examples, strategies and generalizations from the examples. In all, it is the clearest example of practise-what-you-preach that I have seen." John Biggs, Honorary Professor of Psychology, University of Hong Kong “This is a unique book, written by a well-known figure in HE who has broad experience and a long track record as an exemplary and caring teacher…The book is unique because it is written in a very personal manner, with a sharing of the author’s varied experiences and great enthusiasm for the processes of teaching and communication.†Jenny Moon, Bournemouth Media Centre and Independent Consultant “[Cowan’s] innovative approach to the authorship of a well researched and practical book is worthy of particular mention…Practitioners that are keen to allow spaces for innovative approaches to professional development in learners will find this text readable and thought provoking.†Teaching in Higher Education On Becoming an Innovative University Teachershows readers how to plan and run innovative activities to engage their students in effective reflective learning. The book uses an unusual and accessible method: each chapter begins by posing a question with which university and college teachers can be expected to identify; then answers the question by presenting a series of examples, thereafter the writer frankly airs his own second thoughts on what he has offered. In the second edition of this popular book, Cowan maintains his relaxed and readable style, and the book features revised coverage to make it even more accessible and useful. The examples have been updated throughout and a new chapter looks at innovation and reflection in the context of contemporary higher education. This is key reading for all university teachers, whether new or experienced, who want to revitalise their teaching.

This essential and aspirational text is aimed at all beginning teachers, whatever their training route, age phase, and setting. The book explicitly adopts and builds on a new metaphor for teachers' professional learning as interplay between the body of public knowledge and the practical wisdom of teachers within a particular school setting. It also accepts that 'telling' someone how to teach is ineffective; one needs to 'become a teacher' because it involves identity and practice. Inquiry-based critically reflective learning with a clear focus on the learning of pupils is proposed as the core strategy by which one can build knowledge and skills to become an outstanding teacher. Core topics - including planning, inclusion, teaching, assessment, and professional development - are tackled in the book in an accessible and refreshing way, using key research informed evidence. The focus is relentlessly on 'learning' rather than performance, in order to support becoming an excellent professional teacher (rather than a 'competent technician') who makes a difference to learners, colleagues, schools, and policy. Consider the book as a temporary or additional mentor that challenges the reader with different ways of thinking about learning and that provides strategies to guide professional learning. *** ''It takes 10 years or more to begin to be a brain surgeon, but sometimes we get 1-3 years at most before we are allowed to work with children's brains as teachers. So we need inspirational teachers and this is the focus of this compact, powerful and insightful book. It is wonderfully designed around five of the most critical dilemmas in our classrooms: belief vs. ability; autonomy vs. compliance; abstract vs. concrete; feedback vs. praise; and collaboration vs. competition. The power of the book is that it illustrates the new move to focus on learning power - and such a focus permits every student to become smarter through effort and deep practice as they struggle with the high-challenge learning activities - in the presence of inspirational, impactful and passionate teachers. The perfect book for those who want to make most of their opportunity to enhance students' brain power.'' -- John Hattie, Director, Melbourne Education Research Institute *** Librarians: ebook available [Subject: Education]
