From the Back Cover:

YOUR INTRODUCTION TO EDUCATION

 

This is the book - built entirely on authentic classroom experience - that empowers future teachers to explore content and classrooms, reflect on what they’re learning, and develop their own sense of the kind of teacher they aspire to be.

 

EXPLORE:

Explore authentic classrooms

·    Teaching in Focus sections that open the text, begin each chapter, and are peppered throughout chapters allow you to get to know ten teachers and twelve students from four different schools as they help you examine all the issues related to education today.

 

Explore your own positions on education

·    Where Do I Stand? Inventories beginning every chapter, and Where Do I Stand Now? features at each chapter's end, provide an opportunity for you to examine and re-examine your own notions about teaching

 

Explore issues of diversity

·    Diversity Dialogue features in every chapter give our focus teachers the chance to discuss an issue they’ve come across that relates to the increasing diversity - cultural, ethnic, language, socioeconomic, ability, and sexual identity - seen in contemporary classrooms.

 

REFLECT

Reflect on your evolving understanding of education and of yourself as an educator

·    Points of Reflection features throughout every chapter draw your attention to important ideas and ask you to consider your own thoughts on these issues.

 

Reflect on educational issues

·    In the News features examine an ABC News video clip and ask relevant questions to provide you the opportunity to consider issues from all sides.  

 

DEVELOP

Develop your opinions of different issues in contemporary education

·    Letter to the Editor features in each chapter explore issues in education by examining an actual letter published in a newspaper, and asking you to consider your own opinion on the issue and compose your own response.

 

Develop your sense of yourself as an educator

·    Developing Professional Competence features ending each chapter provide practice for licensure exams and help you absorb and apply all you’ve covered in the chapter. Beginning with a short case from the classroom of one of our featured teachers, you’ll be asked a series of licensure-type questions and provided an opportunity to consider the impact of standards on the case and on your answers.
