Description

Teaching would be easy if there were clear recipes you could follow every time. The Ingredients for Great Teaching explains why this is impossible and why a one-size-fits-all approach doesn't work.



Instead of recipes, this book examines the basic ingredients of teaching and learning so you can use them wisely in your own classroom in order to become a better and more effective teacher.



Taking an approach that is both evidence-based and practical, author Pedro de Bruyckere explores ten crucial aspects of teaching, the research behind them and why they work like they do, combined with everyday classroom examples describing both good and bad practice.



Key topics include:



Teacher subject knowledge
Evaluation and feedback
The importance of practice
Metacognition
Making students think




This is essential reading for teachers everywhere.

Review quote

The last few years have seen a number of excellent books about how recent research, particularly from psychology, can be used to improve teaching, but Pedro De Bruyckere's The Ingredients for Great Teaching is one of the best of the crop. In a highly readable and engaging style, he sifts through recent educational research, and helps the reader figure out which research studies can be relied on, which need to be taken with a grain of salt, and which need to be ignored completely. Anyone involved in teaching will gain a tremendous amount by reading this book. Highly recommended. -- Dylan Wiliam Pedro De Bruyckere helped to reveal the lack of evidence behind many intuitively appealing ideas within teaching in his previous book. In Ingredients for Great Teaching he takes the next logical step - pointing teachers towards the more reliable evidence about teaching and learning they can use in the classroom. This excellent and accessible book represents an important contribution to one of the major foundations of professionalism in teaching; expertly describing the evidence-informed, scientific insights that teachers can use to make deliberate choices for the benefit of their pupils and students. -- Nick Rose If you're seeking to improve your knowledge of education research but unsure where to start, you won't find a better gateway book than this. Its insights are scholarly enough to inspire future study, yet practical enough to be applied in first period tomorrow. -- Eric Kalenze
