Observation Skills for Effective Teaching, Fifth Edition

 

Gary D. Borich

 

 

Do you want to begin developing the skills and competencies you need to become an effective, accountable teacher?

 

The fifth 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 processes. 

 

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.
