Product Description: `This is a very good book that makes a good contribution to reading on effective teaching, and one that I am happy to recommend to student teachers and researchers' - British Journal of Educational Psychology

`Suitable for trainee and established teachers who wish to review their classroom practices, this is a well-written and interesting book. The emphasis is on academic research of various areas of education, from established controversies such as streaming/setting to newer and less well studied areas such as maximising the achievement of gifted students.

The strongest feature of the book is that discussion is always well balanced: arguments for and against certain approaches are put forward without bias. The information is ordered into well-structured chapters which allow the reader to access required information with ease and would be a good reference book for those wishing to obtain a broad picture of educational research. All of the chapters show a common structure and there is no over-emphasis on any one particular area.

The great strength of the book is bringing together a range of different ideas into one coherent view of our current understanding of learning and achievement in school, without dwelling on current political arguments' - British Journal Education Technology

`This timely book... draws together many strands of a teacher's professional activities and both informs and questions those individual aspects of teacher effectiveness. For current professional development initiative it provides a foundation of useful knowledge and technique' - Bill Goddard, University of Greenwich

`This book is a "must-buy" for teacher educators, researchers and teachers and curriculum managers who are interested in developing the exchange between research and practice concerning effective teaching' - Learning and Skills Research Journal

`The most effective way to enhance education is to improve the quality of teaching. This book provides, in a concentrated format, knowledge and understanding about this underestimated component of education. A rich data source, this book offers the reflective practitioner a combination of conventional wisdom and new insights into teaching which will enhance his or her professional knowledge and skills' - B P M Creemers, Groningen Institute for Educational Research

`Effective Teaching will make an excellent addition to library shelves, and should prove invaluable to education students who will find a ready portal to an important and diverse literature' - Keith S Taber, Escalate

Research into student learning and achievement shows that classroom teaching is at the heart of the process of schooling. What teachers do in the classroom is the factor, which most strongly affects pupils' progress in school.

There is now a large body of evidence about effective teaching and learning. This book provides an accessible introduction to this international research base, drawing on quantitative and qualitative research in education, psychology, sociology and other related areas.

The authors present what is currently known about effective generic teaching skills such as: questioning techniques; and classroom management; as well as discussing specific issues such as: teaching able pupils; teaching pupils with learning difficulties; enhancing pupils' self-esteem and social skills; teaching literacy and numeracy; and presenting effective classroom assessment practices.

With clear and accessible presentation, and a non-technical approach, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the evidence-base for effective teaching and learning in schools.

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.
