Steve ClemI have been recommending The Skillful Teacher, by Jon Saphier and Robert Gower, to administrators and teachers for years because I believe it to be the single best resource available for all teachers, from beginners to experienced pros. The new edition from Research for Better Teaching has made a great resource virtually indispensable. Reading this book you feel yourself in the presence of true master teachers; it often feels like an extended and challenging conversation with those mentors we all wish we had. Grouping their topics under the four categories of management, instruction, motivation, and curriculum, Saphier and Gower cover every aspect of teaching, offering intelligent analyses of the available research, specific suggestions for moving theory into practice and illuminating case studies drawn from the countless hours they have spent in classrooms at all levels.
