To accommodate the evolution of teacher education programs, this text was developed for two groups: 1) those serving as interns or student teachers as they complete traditional teacher education programs and 2) new in-service teachers who are part of an alternative certification program. The book's team of experienced educators and authors offers a set of practical tools, skills, and advice that teachers can put into immediate use in the field. The authors also aim to promote a high level of engagement and interaction with the program. TEACHING FOR STUDENT LEARNING retains the reader-friendly style and convenient format of the best-selling Ryan and Cooper texts. Its three-hole punched and perforated pages--along with its 25 brief, to-the-point chapters (modules)--make it easy for busy teachers to quickly find, understand, and use key information related to their most pressing needs. Accompanying TeachSource Video Cases, available in the Education Media Library, are directly tied to the text and allow students to see text concepts brought to life in real classrooms.
