What's new in the 3rd edition?
The 3rd edition includes the latest research on both successful teaching practices and the neuropsychology of skill building, as well as two completely new chapters.
Chapter 8: Say, See, Do Teaching, reviews the ground-breaking work of John Hattie, Ph.D. Dr. Hattie places the extensive outcome research regarding different teaching methodologies onto a common scale so that their effectiveness can be directly compared. Many of the sacred cows of education do not fare so well, whereas variations of Say, See, Do Teaching do extremely well.
Chapter 20: Teaching Skills Efficiently, reviews the latest findings of neuropsychology concerning the amount of work needed to create mastery. Once again, Say, See, Do Teaching leads the way. This new research provides critical information for teachers when making decisions about how to teach a given lesson.
The contents of Tools remain the same, with expanded sections for:
