Unlike texts that focus on either the 'how' or 'what' of teaching, Curriculum and Instructional Methods for the Elementary and Middle School explores both the 'how' (instruction) and 'what' (content), and provides an integrative approach to ensure teachers a broad knowledge base when they enter the classroom. This successful K-8 elementary methods text includes both general topics of classroom management, learner differences, planning, assessment, and models of teaching with unique chapters on integrating the best teaching strategies for each content area. By incorporating detailed teaching scenarios, this text offers teacher candidates a hands-on, real-world approach with practical instructional strategies and teaching hints related to research, ELL, planning, and more! The new edition includes coverage of current issues and topics impacting teachers and students in today's classrooms are including bullying (Ch. 2 & 14), school safety and violence (Ch.1), home schooling and charter schools (Ch. 1 & 14), and much more.
