In any endeavor, it is difficult to know what excellence is without knowing what excellence looks like. Linking theory and practice, Those Who Can: Why Master Teachers Do What They Do illustrates what instructional excellence looks like by detailing what elite instructors do and as importantly, why their pedagogical choices lead to uncommonly good student results. Thoughtfully written, clearly explained, and thoroughly researched by a master educator with more than four decades of public school experience, Those Who Can provides school administrators, education students, and teachers of all experience levels with a no-nonsense practical blueprint indicating what instructional strategies promote learning, what approaches undermine learner performance, and the behavioral principles underlying both outcomes. In demystifying the so-called art of instruction, the approaches outlined in Those Who Can will improve student achievement with little investment other than the time it takes to read the book, the courage to implement its concepts, and an open-minded willingness to challenge the educational status quo of what is for the instructional promise of what could be."

As we gain access to more and more knowledge and information online, the future will belong to those who are powerful, literate, curious learners. That means emphasis in classrooms must move toward helping students develop the skills, literacies, and dispositions to be powerful, self-organized learners. Teachers who are themselves master learners in new, modern contexts are crucial to making that happen.

"By legitimizing a stark, one-size-fits-all industrial model of education, the No Child Left Behind legislation has denied the inherent complexity and richness of what teachers do. Discussing teaching in terms of chaos theory, Dexter Chapin explains that while excellent teaching may occur at the edge of chaos, it is not chaotic. There are patterns common to master teachers that connect the components of effective teaching to give meaning and stability to the classroom, allowing master teachers to get up morning after morning and make a genuine, positive difference in students' lives. Master Teachers presents teaching as a complex, adaptive exercise undertaken at the edge of chaos where creativity and invention are maximized."--BOOK JACKET.

To accommodate the evolution of teacher education programs, this text was developed for two groups: 1) those serving as interns or student teachers as they complete traditional teacher education programs and 2) new in-service teachers who are part of an alternative certification program. The book’s team of experienced educators and authors offers a set of practical tools, skills, and advice that teachers can put into immediate use in the field. The authors also aim to promote a high level of engagement and interaction with the program. TEACHING FOR STUDENT LEARNING retains the reader-friendly style and convenient format of the best-selling Ryan and Cooper texts. Its three-hole punched and perforated pages--along with its 25 brief, to-the-point chapters (modules)--make it easy for busy teachers to quickly find, understand, and use key information related to their most pressing needs. Accompanying TeachSource Video Cases, available in the Education Media Library, are directly tied to the text and allow students to see text concepts brought to life in real classrooms.

Is great teaching a gift that only a few of us are born with, or is it a skill that can be learned? In Never Work Harder Than Your Students, Robyn Jackson makes a radical assertion: Any teacher can become a master teacher by developing a master teacher mindset. The master teacher mindset can be achieved by rigorously applying seven principles to your teaching until they become your automatic response to students in the classroom. The more you practice these seven principles, the more you begin to think like a master teacher: 1. Start where your students are. 2. Know where your students are going. 3. Expect to get your students to their goal. 4. Support your students along the way. 5. Use feedback to help you and your students get better. 6. Focus on quality rather than quantity. 7. Never work harder than your students. Using these principles, Jackson shows you how to become a master teacher no matter where you are in your practice. Each chapter provides a detailed explanation of one of the mastery principles, the steps you need to take to apply them to your own practice, and suggestions for how you can begin practicing the principle in your classroom right away. Jackson offers stories from her own teaching practice, as well as from other teachers she has helped, to show you how each principle works. Teaching is a hard job, but using Jackson's principles will help you and your students reap the rich rewards of that hard work.

Reader beware! This book and author may appear to be incongruities. But is it so strange that the same person should assume the role as both real estate investor and a public school teacher? To escape retirement on welfare and starting with nothing I describe how I was able to build equity of well over several million dollars while continuing to teach public school. Happily I was rewarded with the privilege of teaching children for 30 years and my classroom adventures are included within these pages. Then it is wrong to praise freedom in our free enterprise system while deploring the status of so many teachers whose classroom lives and ability to teach are ground out by the dictatorial policies of the educational bureaucracy? On the contrary I believe it is imperative that the truth be told for the good of us all. These are my memoirs.
