Book Title: Handbook of Research on Teaching

Author: Merlin C. Wittrock

Book Description:

I am privileged to teach teachers as my life's work. The book that I chose is one that has influenced my work with teachers as well as my research in teacher preparation. The chapters by Brophy and Good on "Teacher Behavior and Student Achievement" and "Teaching Functions" by Rosenshine and Stevens provide a foundation for our field. I sincerely hope that this book will inspire others—teachers and teacher educators alike, to continue to improve the lives of children by improving our teaching.
