This book is written with the hope that pre-service teachers and in-service professional educators will participate in learning communities as means toward enhancing their professional growth. As teachers and learners invest themselves in collaborative group approaches, they develop a firmer sense of their own identity. Enhancing Effective Thinking and Problem Solving for Pre-Service Teacher Education Candidates and Inservice Professionals specifically focuses on the use of the case method to engender higher order thinking regarding the knowledge base on which best practices in teaching and learning rest. Teacher education candidates and classroom teachers should find this a helpful and motivational source.
