Teaching and Learning Difficulties provides guidance to teaching students that encounter difficulties in a number of learning areas, including science, social studies, history, geography and environmental education. Using a cross-curricular perspective, this book explores multiple teacher-directed and student-centred instructional approaches for classroom use, highlighting the strengths, weaknesses, and specific aspects of each one. It also examines the impact of classroom interactions that influence learning, suggests strategies for reducing learning failure and enhancing students' progress, and presents a 'big picture' perspective on teaching and learning difficulties. (Series: Learning Difficulties) [Subject: Education]

Book News
This volume describes teaching and learning difficulties; teacher and student-directed teaching methods, their advantages and disadvantages, and how they may relate to learning difficulties; and the need to match the method of instruction to the type of learning involved in different areas of the curriculum, with focus on that of Australia. It also discusses variables and interactions that affect learning and teaching, such as establishing attention, questioning, discussions, and parental involvement. This edition has expanded sections on how learning occurs and the nature of learning difficulties, more on e-learning and technology-enhanced teaching, and revised chapters on literacy, numeracy, science, the humanities, and social sciences to align with the Australian Curriculum.
