From the PublisherUntil now, no theory of teaching has existed. "A Conception of Teaching" is an important contribution toward that end. This is a unique work from a pre-eminent figure in the field of education and is certain to stimulate debate.
I would recommend this new book, written by the father of the field of research on teaching, to all those involved in research on teaching and teacher education.
-Dr. David C. Berliner
The work of N.L. Gage offers exceptional insight and breadth of scholarship, brings considerations of theory to research on teaching, integrates the research in this area, and changes how one summarizes research on the topic.
Expanding his original 1963 paradigm for research on teaching to include the 40 years of research completed since then, one of the most important figures in the field offers profound insight into teacher thought processes, the content of teaching, and student cognition. Gage brings all this work together, with scholarship and with care, providing a book only Gage could have written.
I believe this work should be read by all those who are involved in the practice, research, and study of teaching.
-Dr. Barak Rosenshine
This is an exciting book and no one is better qualified to write on the theory of teaching. Nate Gage, a pre-eminent figure in the field, provides a comprehensive treatment of the topic and accomplishes a very significant task.
The book will be of interest to all college teachers, and especially those working in the fields of educational psychology and teacher education.
This is a major work from an outstanding scholar at the pinnacle of his career.
