Product reviews for Big Ideas in Education

The Education Shelf, Library Bookwatch,
Big Ideas in Education: What Every Teacher Should Know is a guide written especially for professional teachers about core concepts of the profession. Chapters discuss such ideas as the importance of cultivating a positive disposition; moral purpose and ethics that guide teachers; how providing personalized, accurate, and timely feedback improves learning; the role of research in the development of teachers; and more. "...Great teachers vary considerably in their style - some were quiet, others animated; some kept to the basics, while others veered away from the set curriculum. Yet what emerged was the capacity of these teachers to adapt new ideas to their own contexts as well as common practices that proved effective across the board." A bibliography and an index round out this excellent reference, guide, and resource.
