Excellent Study Material "... thank goodness to this book... I was able to feel confident about answering practice questions, PANCE questions and even PASSED the PANCE with much room to spare. The advantage this book has over others is the vast amount of practices questions WITH, I repeat WITH explanations. The author cleverly molds your mind to think on the straight and narrow."--Cassie A. Got me easily through the PANCE "Discovered this morning that I passed the PANCE!!! This is the only textbook I bought. First half consists of questions that mostly all have multiple correct answers followed by in-depth explanations, just to help you get a good understanding of the material; second half is all one-answer questions in classic PANCE style. One thing I really liked was that each answer to Part 2 tells you exactly where to find the in-depth explanation in Part 1, which saves you a lot of time riffling through the pages going "where did I read about that again??"--Amazon Reviewer Great resource for PANRE! "Switched to Davis and found this to be an excellent review book...Incidentally I did pass the PANRE, definitely looking forward to 10-year cycle. Hope this helps."--N.K. Scott A must have! "Honestly the best study resource for the PANCE. It was recommended to me by another PA and I'm so happy she did. If you could only buy one book I would make sure it's this. You will not be disappointed."--Courtney

If you have ever been apprehensive about initiating classroom discussion, fearing silences, the domination of a couple of speakers, superficial contributions, or off-topic remarks, this book provides strategies for creating a positive learning experience. Jennifer H. Herman and Linda B. Nilson demonstrate how to create the conditions to facilitate deep and meaningful learning as well as to assess the effectiveness of discussions. They identify, analyze, and solve common problems in both classroom and online discussions and in both small and large classes. They take a direct, practice-oriented approach that, in acknowledging common challenges, provides principles, guidance on design, examples of activities and techniques, and eight detailed case studies. These cases demonstrate successful approaches that faculty across disciplines and from a variety of institutions have adopted in their face-to-face, blended, or online courses at the undergraduate or graduate level. The case authors begin by describing the original pedagogical challenge they faced and explain how they addressed it and assessed the results of their innovation. They also offer practical recommendations to readers who may want to try their strategies. Intended for faculty, this book will be equally valuable for educational developers who can use this resource in their programs and private consultations. At the graduate level, this book can serve as a text or workshop resource in college teaching courses and teaching assistant development programs. The final chapter provides a set of resources and activities - including discussion questions on the case studies, writing prompts, and jigsaw formats - that are equally appropriate for individual study or for use in workshop environments. You'll never again have to suffer such a profound silence that, as described by a contributor to the book, she could hear the crickets chirping outside.
