Description

For Elementary and Middle School Curriculum Development and Methods classes. Unlike texts that focus on either the "how" or "what" of teaching, Curriculum and Instructional Methods for the Elementary and Middle School explores both the "how" (instruction) and "what" (content), and provides an integrative approach to ensure teachers a broad knowledge base when they enter the classroom.show more
