Today's Canadian classrooms are complex, diverse and changing. Teachers need to be able to use theories and research to think critically about the issues that they face, and take the appropriate action. Guided through a four-step process - Reflection, Information Gathering, Decision-making, and Evaluation (RIDE) - preservice teachers using this text learn how to apply research to decision making in today's Canadian classrooms. Nationally renowned scholars and experts in educational theory, motivation, and assessment, the Canadian author team of Miranda D'Amico and Richard F. Schmid links theory and empirical findings to practical issues throughout the text. Highly praised classroom cases, thought-provoking questions, and synthesizing activities provide preservice teachers with the skills they need to be reflective practitioners who can frame questions about their classrooms, think critically about the answers to those questions, and then take action.
