Overview

Educational Foundations: An Anthology of Critical Readings provides an exciting alternative to foundations texts currently on the market. This anthology is aimed at students about to enter the teaching profession, those new to the profession, and anyone interested in carefully examining schools and schooling. Editors Alan S. Canestrari and Bruce A. Marlowe have collected two dozen provocative, engaging essays to challenge students, professors, and administrators with the following questions:

- Why teach?
- Who are today’s students?
- What makes a good teacher?
- How should we assess student learning?
- What does a good school look like?
- How does one develop a critical voice?

The chapter authors address these questions in a bold and refreshing way. Their views are unapologetically politicized, and are informed by decades of experience as teachers, principals, and policy-makers. The collection challenges readers to take a hard look at traditional education practice, and encourages students to become critical, reflective practitioners upon entering the field.

Editorial Reviews

Doctor - Fred Bedelle
“Its greatest strength is potentially in its use of some classic pieces ( and voices) in combination with a spread of contemporary voices in subsectors of education.”
Deccan Herald
"The book provides an exciting alternative to foundations texts currently on teh market. The editors of Educational Foundations have collected provocative, engaging essays to challenge students, professors and administrators with questions like why teach, who are today's students, how one should assess students' learning etc.The collection also challenges readers to take a hard look at traditional education practices, and encourages students to become critical, reflective practitioners upon entering the filed."
Teachers College Record
"The anthology ends with an epilogue entitled “Yes, But . . ." in which Canestrari and Marlowe taped a conversation they had with students about the themes that were raised by this book. Although too many issues were raised in this conversation to cover all of them in this short review, it really demonstrates that preservice teachers can be reflective about the nature and importance of teaching. The epilogue serves the format of the book well. It demonstrates that the concerns raised in this book affect all of us as teachers and teacher educators and that students can be engaged with these often times controversial topics of educational reform. I encourage you to seriously consider this book for your next foundations course or other teacher education course. It may provide the catalyst for a much-needed discussion concerning these important issues for future teachers and teacher educators."

    This book is misrepresented by the title.

    This book has a couple of interesting articles but is primarily a book on how not to educate children.
