On Course by James M Lang

As the second title indicates this is a book that guides new teachers week-by-week through the first semester. Starting with some advise about planning and general strategies such as how to use Bloom's taxonomy for defining course objectives described in the syllabus, to how to use the taxonomy for assessment. It is a good read not only for new teachers but for experienced ones as well, due to its ample and comprehensive review. Lang goes beyond the traditional idea of paper organization even though he sure gives the traditional methods a solid support but also analyzes the new technologies like online course management systems that are becoming increasingly used at colleges and universities.
