Teaching to Learn, Learning to Teach: A Handbook for Secondary School Teachers (Paperback)Alan J. Singer (author)
- We can order this
Teaching to Learn, Learning to Teach uniquely addresses three problems that frequently concern pre-service and beginning teachers: classroom control, satisfying state and federal mandates, and figuring out exactly what is the role of the teacher. Integrating practical, theoretical, and critical teaching considerations, it presents a model student-centered approach for designing lessons, developing personal connections with students, and building classroom communities: PRO/CLASS Practices (Planning, Relationships, Organization, Community, Leadership, Assessment, Support, Struggle). Pre-service teachers are encouraged to reinterpret the principles and continually redefine them as they develop their own reflective practice.

"... forces readers to confront their own attitudes and prejudices and leads them to a truer understanding of what it means to teach and learn in today's society."
Dennis Banks, State University of New York-Oneonta, USA
"This book is a must for every teacher.... It provides a framework for forcing readers to ask questions that promote self-reflection about their choices for becoming a teacher, how their experiences have created individual mental models of what teaching is about, and how they can become a member of the learning community."
Felica Hirata, Baruch University, USA
