The New Art & Science of Teaching


The New Art and Science of Teaching is a well-researched instructional framework that comprehensively addresses the most alterable effect on student achievement—quality instruction. One of the major changes in The New Art and Science of Teaching is the focus on student outcomes obtained by teachers’ instructional actions. The premise is that teachers who implement instructional strategies will, in turn, help students use mental processes that successively enhance the learning. In other words, it’s not enough to merely use an instructional strategy, but more important to ensure it has the desired learning effect for students.
