Although many teachers have studied aspects of Constructivism in their college programs, including Piaget, Bloom, Vygotsky and Gardner, the connection between these theorists is not always clarified. This book teaches you the correct approach for deconstructing the questions on the exam in order to pick the correct answer. This study guide is designed to help prospective teachers understand this theory and how it applies to learning. The strategies are easy to understand and are the key to passing these State exams. The book covers strategies for decoding the questions and outlines for writing a strong essay as well as common mistakes that teachers make when taking the exams. This time, pass the exam!
