Overview

The Teaching Roadmap is designed for college and secondary educators who are looking for support as they begin their teaching careers. While one of the main foci of this book is preparing new instructors for the demands of teaching, the authors outline some of the main theories on learning styles, contemporary trends in education, and a variety of teaching methodologies. Beyond the mechanics of the teaching-learning process, this book emphasizes preparation (e.g., creating syllabi, developing lesson plans, and where to look for assistance). Throughout the book, common pitfalls in all areas of teaching are addressed, and recommendations for resolving problems are offered. Considering the investment in time that it takes to research, this book has been designed to be a user-friendly and concise outline of the most important themes that confront new teachers. Each chapter includes easily accessible information on how to quickly access to a variety of outside resources. Finally, the web site support center offers immediate access to multiple templates, activities, and other resources to save you time!
