Summary: For Introduction to Foundations of Education and Introduction to Teaching courses.

This very readable text includes dozens of excerpts from novels, biographies, memoirs, lectures, essays, plays, poetry, and songs that explore all of the themes traditionally addressed in the foundations course--history, philosophy, politics and sociology of education, the nature of schools, and the teaching profession. This collection of fiction and non-fiction is divided in moreto six themes, and each section begins with a Norman Rockwell painting that helps readers visualize the theme. Through this interdisciplinary approach, future teachers receive the critical information they need in their chosen profession, bringing to life the message that education is, ultimately, all about people.
