The Moore Method: A Pathway to Learner-Centered Instruction offers a practical overview of the method as practiced by the four co-authors, serving as both a "how to" manual for implementing the method and an answer to the question, "what is the Moore method?". Moore is well known as creator of The Moore Method (no textbooks, no lectures, no conferring) in which there is a current and growing revival of interest and modified application under inquiry-based learning projects. Beginning with Moore's Method as practiced by Moore himself, the authors proceed to present their own broader definitions of the method before addressing specific details and mechanics of their individual implementations. Each chapter consists of four essays, one by each author, introduced with the commonality of the authors' writings.Topics include the culture the authors strive to establish in the classroom, their grading methods, the development of materials and typical days in the classroom. Appendices include sample tests, sample notes, and diaries of individual courses. With more than 130 references supporting the themes of the book the work provides ample additional reading supporting the transition to learner-centered methods of instruction.

A Moore method mathematics course involves no textbooks and no lectures; students present problem solutions to the class, with the instructor serving as a coach and collaborator. This manual will support the transition to learner-centered methods of instruction based on the Moore method. The book begins with an overview of the method as practiced by Moore himself, then interpretations of the method as practiced by each of the book's four co-authors. Each chapter consists of four essays, one by each author, on topics such as classroom culture, grading methods, development and selection of materials, and typical classroom days. Appendices from each author offer sample tests, syllabi, worksheets, handouts, and teacher diaries from real math courses. All four co-authors are veteran practitioners of the Moore method. Coppin chairs the math department at Lamar University. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
