Overview

Results-Driven Teaching explores the reality that individual teachers have different perspectives on teaching. Some teachers perceive teaching as distributing textbooks, handing out worksheets, and giving tests on Fridays. While others might vary the activities in classrooms, they still have a predictable pattern of what is done and accomplished—some students learn and some do not. A results-driven teacher, however, leads every student to true learning. This standard is far above the written job description and requirements for a satisfactory performance evaluation, but the results-driven teacher's standard comes from ethics, conscience, and a personal dedication to results. Results-Driven Teaching is a lively, personal, and interactive exploration of the realistic demands and unlimited possibilities of teaching. This book will challenge readers and inspire teachers. Everyone benefits when teachers teach so well that every student learns.

Editorial Reviews

Choice
Through the use of real-life experiences, vignettes, and case studies, he presents an excellent argument for teachers to do more than simply cover the material and cover the textbook within a given time frame. Using a systematic approach, the author rigorously analyzes techniques teachers can utilize to approach the holy grail of modern education: facilitating learning for every student in the class. That makes this an insightful, practical volume that could be read profitably by future teachers, new teachers, and experienced teachers alike. Recommended.
