Die Ergebnisse der empirischen Unterrichtsforschung, z. B. die Studien von Hattie (2009, 2012), Marzano (1998) und Wellenreuther (2004, Neubearb. 2013), zeigen, dass alle Schülerinnen und Schüler größere Lernerfolge erzielen können, wenn der Unterricht stärker von der Lehrperson gesteuert wird. Anhand von Beispielen für Englisch, Französisch und Spanisch wird gezeigt, wie sich neuere Forschungserkenntnisse auf fremdsprachliches Lehren und Lernen übertragen lassen. Dabei wird praxisnah beschrieben, wie im lernwirksamen Fremdsprachenunterricht lehrer- und lernergesteuerte didaktische Ansätze in Einklang gebracht werden können.

Die große Bedeutung, die dem Lehrerberuf in der Öffentlichkeit, aber auch in den Bildungswissenschaften für die Qualität von Schule und Unterricht zugemessen wird, stand bislang in deutlichem Kontrast zu Umfang und Intensität der Forschung, die auf den Lehrerberuf gerichtet war. Diese immer wieder beklagte Situation hat sich jedoch gewandelt. Seit etwa einem Jahrzehnt ist eine deutliche Intensivierung und allmähliche Verstetigung der Forschung zum Lehrerberuf zu beobachten. Mit dem vorliegenden Handbuch wird erstmalig eine repräsentative Übersicht über den aktuellen Stand der Forschung zum Lehrerberuf vermittelt. Unter intensiver Berücksichtigung der internationalen Fachdiskussion informieren die 45 Beiträge des Handbuchs über Forschung zu folgenden Themenfeldern: Geschichte des Lehrerberufs, Charakteristika und Rahmenbedingungen des Lehrerberufs, Konzepte der Forschung zum Lehrerberuf, Berufsbiographien von Lehrerinnen und Lehrern, Lehrerbildung, Kognitionen, Emotionen und Kompetenzen von Lehrern, Lehrerhandeln sowie Belastung und Beanspruchung im Lehrerberuf. Für die zweite Auflage wurden neue Beiträge eingefügt; alle Beiträge gründlich überarbeitet, aktualisiert und ergänzt. Insofern handelt es sich um eine vollständig überarbeite und ergänzte Neuauflage der ersten Ausgabe. Das Handbuch der Forschung zum Lehrerberuf wendet sich nicht nur an Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler, sondern darüber hinaus an ein größeres Fachpublikum (Lehrerinnen und Lehrer, Lehrerverbände, Bildungsverwaltungen, Institutionen der Lehrerausbildung und Lehrerweiterbildung, Schulen etc.) sowie an die interessierte Öffentlichkeit generell.

"This unique resource is a deep dive into Activators, a core teaching practice that incorporates individual think time with purposeful social interaction to increase emotional, cognitive, and behavioral engagement in learning. Featuring concrete, hands-on activities that can be completed efficiently at the start of a unit, lesson, or topic, Activators help to: Increase engagement in learning, Support a well-paced lesson, Generate connections to prior knowledge, Provide students with opportunities to practice skills and deepen understandings, [and] Support formative assessment. Although Activators have different formats, they all share two key components: individual think time and purposeful social interaction, which support students to develop quality responses to content and ideas while engaging with peers. Authors Nicole Frazier and Donna Mehle offer detailed facilitation tips for more than 20 Activators, providing a clear understanding of what they are and how they work in specific settings. Frazier and Mehle created Activators with careful attention to the latest research on the most effective ways to foster engagement among adolescent learners. They were motivated to write Activators to share this powerful core practice more widely. They note, 'In our 25+ combined years of teaching experience as well as our work as educational consultants who support middle and secondary teachers around the country, we've witnessed up close the ways in which these Activator formats ignite students' attention and interest, maximize participation and drive well-paced lessons that deepen learning in meaningful ways.' Content area examples for English language arts, math, science, social studies, and world languages accompany each Activator. The ELA and math content examples are aligned to Common Core Content Standards for grades 6-12." -- Publisher's description.
