It's written keeping in mind that the user is going to be in the classroom and confronted with the challenges that are faced by today's educators. I especially like how it attempts to steer new teachers away from many of the common 1st year mistakes.

Effective Teaching Methods : With Bridges. For graduate and undergraduate courses in general K-12 methods.

Gary Borich grew up on the south side of Chicago, where he attended Mendel High School and later taught in the public school system of Niles, Illinois.

For graduate and undergraduate courses in general K-12 methods. The new edition of this popular text clearly achieves its stated goal: to prepare prospective teachers to meet the challenges of today's changing classrooms by providing effective, practical, research-based practices in an accessible, conversational style. Material is based on a quarter-century of actual, in-classroom research that makes it possible to replace anecdotal suggestions for good teaching with solidly research-grounded strategies empirically related to positive outcomes. The author shows future teachers not only "what" to do to meet today's teaching challenges, but "how" to do it, through the experiences of real teachers in real classrooms.

This book can be very informative at times, but I feel like Borich is the Dicken's of teaching texts. Borich constructs these long, erudite sentences that could easily have been stated with simpler, less flamboyant language. I spend more time re-reading what I just read than I do reading page-to-page. At times, Borich will have thoughtful insight, present interesting research, or helpful teaching tools, but I feel like I must swim through a quagmire of superfluous text to reach this information.

This book was recommended for my studies through the ABCTE program, for the PTK exam. I enjoyed this book and it is very easy to read, and I'm kicking myself I didn't just go ahead and purchase it. I only rented, due to the high number of books I needed... I would recommend this for any new teacher.

Unlike many textbooks, Borich's Effective Teaching Methods provides an equal balance of practical application and scholarly research-based practices. It's written keeping in mind that the user is going to be in the classroom and confronted with the challenges that are faced by today's educators. I especially like how it attempts to steer new teachers away from many of the common 1st year mistakes.

Likes:

*The DVD contains all the videos that the textbook references.

*The book gives the Prentice Hall website where you can access short quizzes at the end of each chapter. This is handy because you can test how well you have comprehended the information (They are also at the end of each chapter, but the website calculates the scores for you). You can also access the PowerPoint's for each chapter. They are meant for professor use, but it's a nice introduction into each chapter or a good review afterwards.

*At the end of each chapter there is an overall review, key terms, and case studies, if you so desire to solidify your instructional knowledge.

Dislike:
I really only have one beef with this book and it's not really the book itself. The teaching examples on the DVD are OLD. I spied early and mid 90s dates on the walls. Granted, the situations are still very much relevant today, but of course, the technology looks very outdated.

Overall, I give this textbook/DVD 4.5 stars with a half star taken off for the outdated classroom observation. But, since Amazon doesn't allow half stars, I give it five.
