The Principles of Learning and Teaching
By Adel Al-Bataineh
This primer is intended to provide teachers with the foundational knowledge to understand student learning, develop the necessary skills to plan curriculum and instructional strategies, and enrich teachers’ abilities to assess and manage their classrooms. Each chapter includes a summary, a list of key terms, people and ideas, and discussion questions. Through these resources, the readers are encouraged to discuss, analyze and debate issues that relate to learning and teaching. A teacher’s success depends, to a large degree, on the success of his or her students. To help students succeed, teachers must not only develop a range of pedagogical skills, they must also develop the personal characteristics conducive to effective teaching. The author hopes that that this book will contribute to the advancement of good teaching.
