This book introduces the construct of teacher adaptive practices, extending existing research on teacher adaptability into classroom practices. It identifies specific teaching practices that constitute the just-in-time adaptation during lessons that provides opportunities for students' critical and creative thinking. 278 classroom observations of teachers resulted in a summary of teaching behaviours that constitute teacher adaptive practices. Based on these findings, the book develops a practical teacher improvement program.
