When mentoring our pre-service and in-service teachers we need to describe and model both research-based and clinical best practices. Accordingly our mentees should know about models of teaching.
A model of teaching (*Joyce, B., & Weil, M. (1986) is an instructional pathway to reach a learning outcome that aligns and is consistent with enduring Jewish knowledge. Some models of teaching are teacher-directed, while others are student-engaged. In future posts we will define and describe three teacher directed and three student-engaged models of teaching.

On the next post we will begin our discussion of the first teacher-directed model of teaching, the Presentation Model.
