Introduction to Models of Teaching

Making Friends with Models of Teaching – what’s here and in the book

Let’s discuss how to use the book and the support materials.

First, how to structure personal study, cooperative study, or a course at a campus or at distance (as online).

The opening sections and the first five chapters should be studied first.

The dedication sets the tone – written 100 years ago by one of America’s most important educators. She carried the torch of optimism and professionalism high.

Browse the table of contents – it is a study guide.

The two “Heritage” sections put education in a historic context – including the research that current models incorporate.

Then, work through the first five chapters. The first two orient you to the bunch of ways of teaching we take you to and the development of learning communities from Kindergarten through high school and even beyond.

The next three are intensive treatments of three basic models every educator needs. The rest of the book builds on them, but you will find that chapters six through twenty make a lot more sense of you have the models for teaching and learning inductively, learning through investigations and the picture-word inductive model in tow.

Then you can pick and choose models to study.
