Overview

This unique new book enters into the middle and high school teaching methods market with an intimate, first-person approach, and an emphasis on reflective teaching. Reader, biography, teaching philosophy, and portfolio activities make this a practical book rich in applications. Teaching is portrayed as a process of ongoing learning, growth and development—and a strong emphasis is placed on multiculturalism and diversity. While most books tend to take a more traditional, skills-based approach, Contexts of Teaching presents teaching methods from a constructivist, inquiry perspective consistent with current educational trends. Chapter topics include Knowing Middle and High School Students, Rethinking Classroom Management, considering Curriculum, planning instruction, Selecting Instructional Materials, Teaching with Technology, Implementing Instruction: Strategies and Methods, Assessing Student Learning, Understanding the Role of Community, Making a Difference in Today's Classrooms, and Reflecting for Professional Renewal. For teachers of middle and high school students.
