Teachers and student teachers in social work will gain valuable
insight into the artistry that makes truly great teaching from the
accounts found in this new book. Master teachers examine the
processes they use in the classroom and present them in a format
that facilitates the practical application of their ideas. The
teaching methods recounted here emphasize the learners as the most
important component of the teaching/learning experience and
demonstrate techniques to enliven and enhance the reader's own
teaching methods. This vital book focuses on teaching
"technologies," defined as bodies of knowledge or skills ordered
for use, that are comprised of techniques or systematic procedures
that bring the technologies to life. By utilizing the techniques
and technologies portrayed in this volume, social work educators at
the graduate and undergraduate levels will become more effective at
reaching their students and helping them grow into professional
social workers.Teaching Secrets helps teachers increase the
effectiveness of their teaching by demonstrating how to pay
attention to acts and nuances that stimulate and assist students in
their learning. Individual chapters focus on specific classroom
environments, providing practical advice to improve learning in
each situation. Social work teachers will discover more effective
teaching through the use of student journals, the use of self in
teaching doctoral research, the use of authority, and the benefits
of student-student learning in work groups. Other chapters offer
practical advice on reaching different groups of students such as
black teachers leading white students, white teachers leading black
students, and special efforts for reaching female students. This
exciting book reveals that great teachers are not born but made,
and shares the secrets that will help all social work educators to
develop greatness in their own classrooms.
