    • Chapter 6 Place of Schools in Society – Students are introduced to the different roles that schools play in our society. This chapter discusses the culture of schools, school choice, school levels, as well as rural, suburban, and urban schools, concluding with a discussion of effective schools.
    • Chapter 13 Becoming a High-Quality Teacher in a Changing World – Students explore the changing nature of education and the importance of learning through professional development and educational research to gain a better understanding of what it takes to become a high-quality teacher.
    • Integrated Coverage of Technology – Studentscan now view technology as an integrated piece of the instructional and learning process rather than a separate entity.
    • Integrated Coverage of Educational Trends – Chapters conclude with a new Looking Ahead section that introduces students to educational trends related to each chapter topic. This awareness will help students think critically now about educational issues so they will be better equipped to make decisions in their classroom.

  • Prepare Teachers for Diverse Classrooms
    • Reflect on Diversity feature – Located in every chapter, students read about a real classroom situation dealing with diversity. Students can then apply their knowledge by going to this text’s online resource, MyEducationLab, to answer questions where they receive hints and feedback.
    • Integrated diversity discussion – Students are introduced to the challenges and rewards of teaching in today’s diverse classrooms in each chapter.

  • Experience the Classroom
    • MyEducationLab provides easy-to-assign homework and other activities designed to engage your students and ensure that they come to class more prepared. It saves you class time that is often spent reviewing the basics and lets you devote that time to a higher-level learning experience.
