Learner-Centered Instruction
Building Relationships for Student Success

March 2009 | 240 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Learner-Centered Instruction: Building Relationships for Student Success is a supplementary text that provides a practical yet comprehensive explanation of learner-centered instruction, the empirically supported methods associated with strong teacher-student relationships. The text is primarily intended to help K-12 preservice and inservice teachers understand and realize the benefits of learner-centered instruction (LCI) strategies. While this new text reviews common topics in instruction and classroom management, it is distinct from other texts in its focus on the elements and effects of teacher-student relationships. Learner-Centered Instruction is firmly rooted in research, yet written in an accessible style that brings to life the human dimensions and value of these relationships.
