Many of our teacher-candidates use this text to study for their state teacher competency tests and have found it helpful. It covers actual teaching situations as well as introductory elements for students interested in becoming teachers. Of all the textbooks I have reviewed for this class, I find this book to be the most “real” when it comes to what is happening in American education. I think coverage diversity in this test is better, more detailed, and covers more than just race and ethnicity.

I found the text to be an enjoyable read, a comment that I don’t ever recall making about any textbook, and I would recommend it to fellow instructors as well as new teachers.
Tami Baker, East Tennessee State University
This text is written with the student in mind, readable, informative, current, it provides a great overview and introduction to the classroom. It allows our students to begin looking at the classroom of today through the eyes of a teacher. A great start to “Becoming a Teacher.”
Larry Froelich, Kent State University
The writing is clear, interesting and engaging. It is written at a level that is appropriate for my students. The honesty of the chapters in answering the focus questions and discussing the pros and cons of the teaching profession as well as connections to real teaching experiences are the strengths.
Lois Paretti, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
I find the organization to be quite useful and beneficial. I particularly like the Summary pages and the Professional Reflections and Activities. This gives added strength to the power of reflecting.
Sarah Swicegood, Sam Houston State University
I like the variety of activities at the end of the chapter, especially Teacher’s Journal, Teacher’s Research, and the professional portfolio.
