Overview

With this brief, low-cost paperback text—the first written specifically for field-based Introduction to Education courses—teacher-candidates have an ideal resource that they can easily carry into schools and use as a notebook in which they can record their observations of teachers and students in action. Special features for use in the field, such as INTASC connected "Field-Based Activities" and "Portfolio Reflections and Exhibits," encourage interaction and thus enhance students' understanding of the material. To increase self-awareness and reflection by future teachers, this text also includes an emphasis on self-assessment.
