Terrible teachers aren't terrible because they haven't discovered the art of teaching. They're terrible because they do things that drive students to distraction and interfere with learning. Written in a conversational, readable style and filled with anecdotes and examples illustrating the destructive things teachers do that undermine students' progress, this book focuses on eliminating mistakes in teaching rather than promoting flashy or complex teaching fads.
Reamey shows how to set yourself and your students up for success in the classroom and beyond. The book also addresses ways to avoid testing and assessment pitfalls, as well as methods for using exams and the reviews that follow to continue to teach your students even after the course has ended.
