March 2005 | 232 pages | Corwin
Hit the target of excellence and empower yourself to be a truly effective teacher!

Aspiring, new, and veteran teachers will appreciate this strong collection of the best teaching practices for effectively reaching learners at all levels. Tied to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, this easy-to-use guide targets comprehensive and trustworthy resources that emphasize the essentials of good teaching. Filled with handy resources and ideas for every teaching situation, Elliott's book also exemplifies how best to combine strategies into your personal "blended" model.

Elliott applies a four-step framework to each teaching model and strategy to ease implementation in the classroom:

  • Plan: Outlines the stages and crucial elements of the model in action
  • Structure: Describes student and teacher roles and relationships
  • Teacher/Learner Interaction: Demonstrates how the teacher can effectively work with learners
  • Outcomes: Describes how both instructional and nurturing outcomes are achieved by leading learners in certain directions
Teaching on Target is the guide for today's creative teachers, empowering them to apply these components artfully to achieve maximum learning outcomes while becoming the most effective instructor of the classrooms in which they serve.
