As a Teacher, have you ever felt like this? * At times, it gets so boring teaching the same stuff over and over! *When homework papers come in, I sometimes wish I hadn't assigned them. * I feel so washed out by the end of most days - the job pressure is killing me! * I need to figure out ways to turn my lack-lustre class environment into an exciting and vibrant one. * Student behaviour is turning out to be a nagging problem. * If only I could get some co-operation from the parents! The Art of Teaching: A Survival Guide for Today's Teacher, offers you workable solutions to these and many other classroom situations you come across daily. The book deals directly with problems that teachers identify as their greatest concerns: discipline, written work, pressure, effectiveness, burnout, parent co-operation, and student motivation. It will help sharpen your teaching skills, enhance the learning environment, and make school more meaningful and fun for everyone. The book is essentially written for middle and high school teachers who think of themselves as lifelong learners. It will also be helpful for teachers-in-training, teacher leaders, school administrators, educators who hire teachers, supervisors, and policy-makers. The author has put pen to paper in the hope that some of the techniques you pick up from this book, will make you loved, respected and remembered.
In a deeply personal memoir filled with humor, encouragement, and hard-won wisdom about the teacher's craft, the distinguished critic and author furnishes valuable insights into the many challenges educators face, as well as a discussion of such topics as politics in the classroom, the importance of a disciplined approach to life, fostering relationships with students, and balancing one's teaching load with research and writing.
A practical guide for everyone who must deliver a lecture, lead a discussion, assign a grade, or carry out the hundreds of tasks involved in being a successful teacher from the first day of school to the last.
"This is not another book of checklists or tips for teachers. The Art of Teaching is quite simply the definitive guide to effortlessly mastering the essence of good teaching practice. Concise, simple, yet motivating and inspiring, Alan Haigh's book hones in on the essential 'big' ideas behind the craft of caching, condensing them into straightforward, step-by-step rules, which you can put into practice right away."--Page 4 of cover.

It is for all those medical professionals who are involved in the process of teaching.

This is a text in demand from not only medical teachers, but also from all the faculty of paramedical and allied health courses. • Covers three broad aspects of teaching and learning, viz., (i) Technology in and of education, (ii) Management of education and (iii) Educational research. • Beautifully illustrated educational science applies to medical teachers as well as members of heathcare team and also all those who are involved in the art of teaching. • Authored by experts who have vast experience in medical education at both national and international levels. Their vision, thought process and knowledge get reflected in their writings. • A ‘must read’ book for every young faculty making his/her entry in the educational field as a medical teacher before embarking on educational activities.
The Art of Teaching Science has proven itself to be one of the most popular introductory texts for Australian pre-service and in-service teachers, providing guidance on engaging students and helping develop scientifically literate citizens. Beginning with an examination of the nature of science, constructivist and socio-cultural views of teaching and learning and contemporary science curricula in Australian schools, the expert authors go on to explore effective teaching and learning strategies, approaches to assessment and provide advice on the use of ICT in the classroom. Fully revised and updated, this edition also reflects the introduction of the AITSL professional standards for teachers and integrates them throughout the text. New chapters explore: *a range of teaching strategies including explicit instruction, active learning and problem-based learning; *the effective integration of STEM in schools; *approaches to differentiation in science education; and *contemporary uses of ICT to improve student learning. Those new to this text will find it is deliberately written in user-friendly language. Each chapter stands alone, but collectively they form a coherent picture of the art (in the sense of creative craft) and science (as in possessing the knowledge, understanding and skills) required to effectively teach secondary school science. 'Helping each new generation of school science teachers as they begin their careers is crucial to education. This is the updated, third edition of this valuable textbook. It contains a wonderful range of inspirational chapters. All science teachers, not only those at the start of the profession, would benefit from it, in Australia and beyond.' Michael J. Reiss Professor of Science Education, University College, London
