This practical text provides competencies that prepare pre-service teachers, student teachers, and first year teachers for classroom observation. The author presents observation skills according to eight areas related to positive outcomes in learners which include: learning climate, classroom management, lesson clarity, instructional variety, task orientation, student engagement, student success, and higher thought processes. Observation skills are combined with patterns of effective teaching practice for each of the eight areas to help students observe what happens in the classroom and use what is learned to improve their own teaching. This book can be used as a companion volume to Borich's Effective Teaching Methods, fourth edition , as a stand-alone text for an observation course taken before or during a methods course, and as a resource during student teaching.

Do you want to begin developing the skills and competencies you need to become an effective, accountable
The sixth edition of Observation Skills for Effective Teaching focuses on one of the principal means by which
you can become an effective and professional teacher—by observing others and incorporating the best of
what you see and hear into you own practice.
Using this text, you will learn to observe in the following eight areas found by researchers to be related to
desirable cognitive, social and emotional outcomes in learners: learning climate, classroom management,
lesson clarity, instructional variety, task orientation, student engagement, student success, and higher thought
This book will also teach you how to decide what to observe, how to effectively and efficiently observe in the
classroom, and how to apply what you have learned through observation to grow as a reflective teacher. In
addition, the book provides methodological concepts, observation instruments, and dialogues designed to
help you see and practice research-based patterns of effective teaching.
