Summary: Becoming a Teacher, Seventh Edition, takes a straightforward look at what it means to be a professional teacher in today's rapidly changing, high-stakes environment of education.

Building upon a strong "mentoring" message that has long been the tradition of Becoming a Teacher, the Seventh Edition helps students make difficult decisions about their teaching future by fostering an awareness of the realities of teaching in America today. This no-non ...show moresense approach provides students with the tools and information necessary to answer the questions, "What does it take to succeed as a teacher today?" and "Do I want to teach?" Along the way, the authors provide practical perspectives for meeting the challenges of teaching. Organized into four parts, the book addresses both practical and foundational topics to give readers a well-rounded view of the teaching profession.

Features

  • The popular "Dear Mentor" feature within each part opener raises pertinent issues for consideration and helps readers receive advice from in-service professionals.
  • A dedicated technology chapter (Ch. 11). and "Technology Highlights" feature critically explore the ever-changing uses of technology and the Internet and how teachers use them to foster collaboration, discovery, and understanding of the "big ideas" in the curriculum
  • Effects and considerations of No Child Left Behind have been incorporated throughout the book, and specifically in Chapter 10, "Curriculum Standards, Assessment, and Student Learning."
  • Multiple case studies offer readers the opportunity to reflect on their beliefs and values and on issues teachers face, giving practice in the applied reflective inquiry that should characterize teachers' professional lives.
  • "On the Frontlines" features provide readers first-hand insights into real-world challenges teachers face and practical solutions for meeting those challenges, as well as a "Survival Guide" of recommended resources to help them in their practicum and student teaching experiences.
  • A special "Preparing for Certification" section at the front of the book provides students with a brief tutorial of FAQs, test-taking tips, and sample test questions intended to remove some of the intimidation of this important professional step.
New To This Edition
  • "Teachers' Voices: Walk in My Shoes" features profile individuals in education whose philosophy and professional contributions reflect commitment to touching others' lives through teaching.
  • "Teachers' Voices: Research into Practice" feature in each chapter presents short, teacher-authored articles illustrating how teachers apply chapter content to actual classroom situations and providing readers firsthand insights into real-world challenges teachers face.
  • "Case for Reflection" feature in each chapter presents problem-solving situations to resolve, providing readers an opportunity to apply new learning to develop practical solutions in specific problem-solving contexts..
  • Revised "Meeting the Standards" feature in every chapter provides prospective teachers with guidelines for acquiring the skills necessary to meet the performance standards developed by INTASC, NCATE, PRAXIS, and NBPTS and for meeting the accountability criteria contained in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.
  • TECHNOLOGY ADVANTAGE-Multiple technology supplements, including access to MyLabSchool, a robust Companion Website and VideoWorkshop CD-ROM, offer students numerous opportunities to expand upon the general content of the text.
