Teaching for Student Learning: Becoming an Accomplished Teacher shows teachers how to move from novice to expert status by integrating both research and the wisdom of practice into their teaching. It emphasizes how accomplished teachers gradually acquire and apply a broad repertoire of evidence-based teaching practices in the support of student learning.
The books content stems from three major fields of study: 1) theories and research on how people learn, including new insights from the cognitive and neurosciences 2) research on classroom practices shown to have the greatest effect on student learning and 3) research on effective schooling, defined as school-level factors that enhance student achievement and success. Although the books major focus is on teaching, it devotes considerable space to describing how students learn and how the most effective and widely-used models of teaching connect to principles of student learning. Specifically, it describes how research on teaching, cognition, and neuroscience converge to provide an evidence-based "science of learning" which teachers can use to advance their practice.
