"In addition to practical tips, the book offers a very basic introduction to the scholarship of teaching…Readers who want a practical resource without the distractions of first-person narrative will find exactly what they are looking for in this books. It will be particularly useful for those who are unfamiliar with the scholarship of teaching and interested in a comprehensive, practical guide to the mechanics and details of their craft."? Teaching Theology & Religion

"Since most graduate programs don’t focus their curriculum on what it means to become a worthy teacher in their respective fields, this book will prove an indispensable tool to anyone embarking on the task, both graduate instructors and newly-appointed assistant professors. Lieberg dispenses some graceful wisdom on the art of teaching without being overly prescriptive or reducing classroom strategies to easy formulas."? Nancy K. Barry, Assistant to the Dean for Advising and Academic Support, Luther College

"A smart and sensitive guide for graduate students and new faculty preparing to teach their first college class. An advocate for student-centered approaches to teaching, Lieberg leads newcomers through a rich repertoire of strategies to transform a classroom of individuals into a community of learners. Beautifully written, this is a how-to book with heart. When teachers and students are seen as whole people, the routines of active learning come alive, engaging students with content, with each other, and with skills of conversation and collaboration that will serve them well throughout life."? Mary Taylor Huber, Senior Scholar, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching

This book provides an introduction to the theory of teaching; describes proven strategies and activities for engaging students in their learning; and offers advice on classroom management, syllabus creation, grading, assessment, and discipline issues, among other topics.
