More About This Textbook

Overview

Teaching in the Secondary School, Seventh Edition encourages readers to become reflective practitioners who constantly learn from their experiences. This thoroughly updated and revised text equips teachers with the tools they need to succeed in the day-to-day classroom environment, and rise to the challenges facing today’s secondary school students and educators.

This text provides practical coverage of critical issues such as diversity, differentiated instruction, cooperative learning, direct instruction, higher-level thinking, assessment, planning, classroom management, legal issues, and career-long professional development for today’s secondary teachers.

New to this Edition:

  • New information on education reform proposals, such as Race To The Top and Breaking Ranks, and the changing role of secondary teachers. (Chs. 1 & 2)
  • The assessment chapter is completely revised with information on diagnostic, formative, and summative assessments, and a new emphasis on planning assessment prior to planning instruction, outlined in the “Backward Design” model. (Chs. 6 & 7)
  • A new section on writing across the curriculum answers the call for an increase in integrating literacy across the curriculum in all secondary classes. (Ch. 12)
  • Significantly current information on bullying, cyber-bullying, school violence, and drug abuse, including legal issues and school responsibility alerts teachers to the serious misbehaviors that exist in today’s schools and one of the most common and pressing concerns of new teachers. (Chs. 13 & 14)
  • Information on the tremendous opportunities the internet provides for professional development purposes, such as using webinars, podcasts, and e-workshops. (Ch. 15)
