Welcome to the Companion Website for Teaching to Learn, Learning to Teach, 2nd Edition
This text uniquely addresses three problems that frequently concern preservice and beginning teachers in grades 6–12: classroom control, satisfying state and federal mandates, and figuring out exactly what is the role of the teacher.
Integrating practical, theoretical, and critical teaching considerations, the book presents a model student-centered approach for designing lessons, developing personal connections with students, and building classroom communities: PRO/CLASS Practices (Planning, Relationships, Organization, Community, Leadership, Assessment, Support, Struggle). Preservice and in-service teachers are encouraged to reinterpret the principles and continually redefine them as they develop their own reflective practice.
Enhancing and extending the text, the Companion Website features
- Supplemental planning, teaching, and assessment materials
- Thirty-two extended essays—including a number of author Alan Singer’s widely read Huffington Post columns
- Interviews with beginning and veteran teachers
- Two appendixes: “Ideas for Your Professional Portfolio, Resume, and Cover Letter” and “Recommended Websites for Teachers”
