Product Description: "Each year 50,000 American educators participate in international exchange programs, and each year many of them discover that the instructional methods and techniques that have proved successful with their American students are not sufficient to meet the challenges of teaching across cultures. This realistic and practical guide is filled with strategies that will help them bridge that gap. Based on extensive research, it offers a wealth of information, resources, and proven techniques for meeting the challenges - and enjoying the opportunities offered by teaching abroad." "In many cases, instructors teaching outside the U.S. will be dealing with distinctly different views of instructor-student relationships, class size, schedules, classroom culture, performance expectations, level of student participation, student workloads, teaching assignments, and faculty expectations. Here they will find help in identifying these differences and developing strategies for working effectively within the host academic community. They will also find many ways to modify their instructional strategies to accommodate variations in student ability and English proficiency, along with suggestions for tailoring instructional techniques to local needs and resources." "Drawing on research covering hundreds of Fulbright Scholars and other overseas professors, the book offers excellent advice on professional issues both in and outside the classroom. It includes specific advice on negotiating teaching loads and class assignments, team-teaching with host professors, making lectures more effective, relating classroom material to students' cultural context, evaluating students, accommodating national testing programs, fostering connections with host colleagues, and finding the time and resources to conduct research. Logistical challenges are covered as well; readers will find useful suggestions for coping with limited books and supplies, library resources, and support services; using technology to support instruction; and arranging lecture tours." "Resource appendices include sources of fellowships, scholarships, and travel and research grants; planning resources for faculty exchanges (organized by region); resources for advising foreign students on study in the U.S.; and organizations promoting cultural affiliations and linkages between institutions."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
