Techniques for Teaching Law
Techniques for Teaching Law is an exciting new book designed to assist law teachers with the learning and teaching processes. It utilizes two primary tools: explanations of teaching and learning theories and practical ideas for implementing those theories in the classroom.The first chapter explores models of teaching and learning, which have been studied extensively in other arenas of higher education. Each of the succeeding chapters, from Questioning and Discussion Techniques to Visual Tools to Evaluation of Students, begins with a description of the pedagogical underpinnings of each subject. These introductions are followed by innovative teaching strategies from more than 100 veteran teachers, along with the name and school of each author, for follow-up questions.These strategies have been fashioned from experience by their authors and thus are classroom-tested techniques. The content of this book and the strategies suggested make this an interesting and useful book for all teachers -- even those outside of the law school setting.
