This book helps preservice classroom teachers design, implement, and evaluate their own instructional methods with its powerful systematic approach to instructional design. It provides classroom illustrations and opportunities for students to apply principles of design. By linking theoretical principles of learning to applications, the text provides a balance between the 'why' and the 'how' of instruction.
