The sixth edition of Models of Teaching is written to be the core of the theory/practice aspect of the K-12 teacher education program. It covers the rationale and research on the major models of teaching and applies the models by using scenarios and examples of instructional materials. Because it deals with the major psychological and philosophical approaches to teaching and schooling, Models of Teaching provides a direct link between educational foundations and student teaching. Therefore, the book can provide substantial support to programs taking a reflective teaching or constructivist approach. For pre-service and in-service teachers.

    Still at the top

    I used two editions previously, beginning 1988. The model is smoothed out substantially and presents case studies as well as detailed directions for applying each model.

    This edition has a little more on creativity but still does not approach the model presened by Gardner (Multiple Intelligences). But this book is more presentable than Gardner's.
