Secondary Education
"Basic curriculum development is addressed well. Realistic feedback on issues in three specific sections are noteworthy- "Reflection on Practice," "View from the Classroom," and "Public View of Education." Tables with today's visually-oriented students are great! The tables illustrating differences between topics are wonderful! "— Margie Theobald
Holly L. Anderson
"Effective Instructional Strategies provides a savvy, comprehensive roadmap for novice teachers including up-to-date research-based pedagogy and practical guidance."
W. Scott Hopkins
"Dr. Moore manages to guide the student through the minefield between theory and practice. He clearly demonstrates the role of theory and what it means for the practitioner."
Sally Beisser
"This text not only provides practice guided by research, it provides opportunities for connection to the real world of teaching and learning through examples, reflection, and current issues."
Andrew C. Kemp
"I like the practical nature of the book. It mainly discusses practices that my prospective teacher students can actually implement in a field setting. I found the chapters to be easy to read and to contain much useful material."
