New To This Edition
With a stronger emphasis on cultural diversity in every chapter and particularly in Chapter 8, this edition highlights the four student ''subgroups'' that NCLB singles out--poor, minority, English language learner, and disabled--and analyzes the most current perspectives on race, ethnicity, poverty, and gender.
Chapters 2, 7, 8, and 11 offer prospective teachers a detailed look at standards, assessments, and accountability, exploring how measurement-driven state reforms mandated by NCLB may be fundamentally altering teaching and learning.
Chapters 1 and 3 survey the changing status of reform in teacher education, explaining developments such as the highly qualified teacher provisions of No Child Left Behind and the drive to reform teacher education from the inside.
Updated with the latest information on federal, state, and local politics, Chapter 9 provides a political context for the textbook.
Information and analysis of technology is integrated throughout the book, giving prospective teachers insight into how technology is changing teaching.
