Effective Instruction: A Handbook of Evidence-Based Strategies. By Myles Friedman, Diane H. Harwell, and Katherine C. Schnepel. 840-page hardcover. ISBN 0-9666588-4-1
A must for every school! Every school administrator who values good instructional strategies should have this in the school's library to provide teachers with a resource to improve their instruction.
Distilled from thousands of research studies amassed over the last decade Effective Instruction meets the demands for improving instruction to be based on solid evidence instead of personal opinion, political agendas, or compelling sales pitches. From 66 to over 550 research studies are cited to document the effectiveness of each strategy. The strategies are classroom tested and can be readily incorporated in classroom instruction as well as in pre-service and in-service teacher education programs. In addition, commonly used strategies proven not to work are exposed in the book.
