This approach enables future teachers to make the transition from thinking about being a teacher to identifying with the profession as an active, confident participant.

I love the way this book is organized -there's a lot of useful information not only within the text, but also in the margins, for example the inclusion of the INTASC standards, the Reflect & Write feature which allows readers to ponder on pertinent educational issues, the "In the Classroom" feature which describes real-life experiences of actual teachers in different parts of.

I just finished this textbook for a semester in graduate school, and found it very enlightening. I used to teach secondary school in Singapore for about eight years before moving to the United States and after several years as a stay-at-home mom decided that I would love to return to teaching [after grad school].

I love the way this book is organized -there's a lot of useful information not only within the text, but also in the margins, for example the inclusion of the INTASC standards, the Reflect & Write feature which allows readers to ponder on pertinent educational issues, the "In the Classroom" feature which describes real-life experiences of actual teachers in different parts of the country, and many more.

The text is easy to read, and never reads like a dense academic text. Everything is clearly explained and makes the issues described easy to comprehend and follow. The chapters covered are:
What It Means to Be a Teacher
Teaching as a Profession
How Schools are Organized and Connected to their Communities
Teaching Diverse Learners I:Multiculturalism and Gender in Today's Classrooms
Teaching Diverse Learners II: Academically Diverse Learners in Today's Classroom
Partners in Learning:Parents, Families, and the Community
The Politics of American Education
Education and School Law
Historical and Philosophical Influences on Teaching and Learning in America
Standards and Assessment: Their Impact on Teaching and Learning
Teaching the Curriculum
Technology, Teaching,and Learning
Your Teaching Career

In addition, there is a list of useful resources at the end of each chapter, such as relevant websites, suggested titles for further reading, and also ideas for one's professional portfolio.

Conclusion - a valuable education text for teachers.
I know what you are thinking, and that I am a teacher or I am on that path of becoming one. Regardless of how this sound, I got the book for only one reason and that was I was searching into the wealth, differential states of development, mixed expectations for schools which are reflections of the heterogeneous character of the students and how the government is still screwing up by such potential damage of cuts & Pastes. In addition, I must state it is a book of learning laws and special problems, primarily of decentralization rather than centralization and those issues of tests. Finally, it is a book for future teachers. The variety of circumstances which I liked this book is the challenge the new teachers have in front of the American schools and the ultimate choice once that student-teacher candidates become part of this American spectrum. This isn’t a novel book; it’s an assigned, textbook, but a good one to read.
I bought this textbook for one of my educational foundation classes. Good textbook, has some really good information and insight into the classroom. Provides a good foundation for learning more about government involvement in education, and the history of education. I only wish it had been cheaper. While Amazon was the cheapest, I still think this textbook was way overpriced. Most of the information in the book could be found on the internet for free. So like all other textbooks the price was way TOO much.
The book has a lot of antiquated idea and theory's. personal would not recommend this text book. There are no methods in is book used or practice anymore. It a book that give very simple examples that common sense you should already known. Everything in the book is filled with the old axiomatic ideals and preconceived notations.
This was purchased as a required book for my EDU class. It's outdated, I wish she would ave chosen a different book. I did not enjoy reading this book.
This book is a MUST for all future teachers. SO much insight!
great product and service
Awesome, loved it, it was great, I hate writing these. It's just great, why do I need a minimum of a certain amount of words.
