Jossey Bass TOOL's for TEACHING

Tool's for Teaching by Jossey Bass brings the reality down to a lower level of understanding so the beginning instructor can learn about teaching. It assists the veteran teacher as well by refreshing their memories on the different aspects needed to teach and present the material for their students.

A shortcut for an effective teaching

This book is a juice of tens of teaching books that will help teachers to improve their way of teaching, get the message across and interact effectively with their students.

Timeless Teaching Tools

Regardless of the year in which this book was released, rest assured in knowing that it does provide VERY useful and timeless teaching techniques. I appreciate Dr. Gross Davis' efforts a great deal. May God bless you greatly, Dr. Gross Davis!!! This book IS a great starting point towards the quest for professional growth and development.

A truly answered prayer!

In my first teaching jobs, I had the unfortunate experience of being supervised by people who were barely (if at all) qualified to do such an important job. I had to learn how to teach the hard way. Thank God that over the years of perseverance and gained experience my supervisors and my clients (my students) seem to be happy with the educational services that I offer. However, I wish, that I had found out about this book earlier on my teaching career. That way, I could have avoided a lot of headaches. Dr. Gross Davis has done an excellent job on compiling and on organizing different suggestions on how to become an effective teacher. I found it very organized, easy to understand, and most of all very practical. I do not regret having bought this book. As a matter of fact, I treasure it a lot. God bless you, Dr. Gross Davis! I look forward to an update. This book can be a very helpful tool to new and to experienced teachers. It should be on every educator's personal library.

Teachers everywhere can benefit from this book

I've been teaching for almost ten years now, and frankly didn't think this book would do much for me. WAS I WRONG! There are so many useful things in this book -- even experienced teachers can learn something. You can find tips that will help the novice -- how to structure a lecture course vs. a discussion course; to tips that will help you implement new things -- group work, role-playing, etc. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
