Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Her advice is well grounded in research and consistently reflects best practices. Whereas some books in this area reflect the author's experiences or received wisdom, Davis draws on recent scholarship of teaching and learning to support her assertions.

There are many strengths to this book. First, it is helpfully organized as a reference guide. Readers can consult chapters as needed and do not have to read it from cover to cover. It is easy to find targeted suggestions to enhance performance or remedy a problem in a specific area. Moreover, Davis writes concisely and in very practical terms. Second, Tools for Teaching is applicable to a wide range of audiences across disciplines and experience levels.

In sum, this updated edition of Tools for Teaching is a thorough compendium of effective teaching practices. If I were to select only one book to give to a colleague or graduate student to help him or her teach, it would be this text."

—American Psychological Association PsycCritiques Vol 54, Release 43, Article 9 (October 28, 2009)

I purchased this book to use as part of an Adjunct Faculty Certification course. The author has compiled thousands of strategies for teachers to use in the classroom. The sections were very current and thought-provoking.
