Teaching for Tomorrow
Teaching Content and Problem-Solving Skills

Edited by:
  • Ted McCain - Thornburg Center for Professional Development


February 2005 | 112 pages | Corwin
Teaching for Tomorrow concisely lays out the argument for preparing students for the 'real world'. It shows teachers how to engage students in thoughtful work, helping them to learn to collaborate, take responsibility for their own time and tasks, and become creative problem-solvers.

Through role-playing scenarios, six changes that need to take place in terms of teaching, and a four-step process for student work, Ted McCain provides a challenge and a way for teachers to meet it successfully.
