Summary: Completely revised and rewritten, the fourth edition of this leading text takes the theme of the "Teacher as a Professional" and presents a balance between the core topics in foundations and their practical classroom applications.

This entirely new, streamlined edition retains its comprehensive range of foundations topics while focusing on accessibility and relevance to pre-service teachers, as well as an emphasis on social issues and trends in s morechools. Exciting pedagogical features focus on professional practice, technology, national standards, and professional portfolios. A new chapter on standards and assessment addresses the prevalence of these issues in teachers' lives. A bonus section on the PRAXIS Series and state licensure offers FAQs, test-taking tips, and practice questions. Features :

  • Completely revised chapters present the foundations basics and highlight how those basics apply to everyday classroom teaching.
  • "Updated Voices" features provide first-hand accounts on teaching topics from figures such as teachers, teacher educators, authors, and philosophers.
  • Completely Revised! "Cultural Awareness" features highlight the influence of diversity on classroom practice.
  • Completely Revised! "Issues in School Reform" features present trends in school reform and how they help to improve life in U.S. schools.
  • Completely Revised! "Reflective Practice" features serve as a capstone activity for chapters and take the form of a mini-case study that asks students to apply knowledge from the chapter.
New To This Edition :
  • New design and format! Completely redesigned, the fourth edition is now paperback with a four-color design and pedagogical features that make the text easy to navigate.
  • New Organization! Chapters are organized into parts to underscore links between chapter topics, each of which closes with "Benchmarks," "Online Activities," and "Developing a Professional Portfolio" features.
  • "Your Teaching Life in Practice" feature occurs in every chapter and presents important topics that teachers face every day in their classrooms.
  • New "Technology in Practice" features present many different classroom applications for technology available to teachers.
  • Chapter 11 focuses on standards and assessment issues that are constantly under discussion and are gaining importance to all teachers.
  • INTASC Correlations relate the chapter-end "Reflective Practice" features to INTASC standards, exposing readers to the professional standards they will follow.
  • Preparing for the PRAXIS 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.
  • TECHNOLOGY ADVANTAGE--Multiple technology supplements, including a robust Companion Website and Video Workshop CD-ROM, offer students numerous opportunities to expand upon the general content of the text. End-of-chapter critical thinking questions closely correlate the text with the Video Workshop clips on the CD-ROM to assist students with applying general concepts to the classroom. In addition, a direct connection to New York Times articles through the "Themes of the Times" connection on the Companion Website offers students the opportunity to read differing perspectives on the most contemporary education topics of the day. less
