FOUNDATIONS OF EDUCATION, Eleventh Edition, helps students understand the key educational issues and policies affecting American education. Through an array of applied features, the authors help to prepare students for their careers by tying the book's themes to students' future practice. These include "TeachSource Video Cases," "From Pre-Service to Practice" real-world teaching examples, and "Certification Connection Activities." Reflective pedagogy encourages students to form their own unique philosophy of teaching, laying a strong foundation for a lifelong career. Completely up-to-date throughout, this eleventh edition also provides the latest information on accountability, technology, diversity, and many other important topics.
"This is the most carefully researched and edited text of this nature on the market. It comprehensively covers the range of issues that should be addressed in foundations/introduction to education courses, provides excellent teaching tools and available resources, and offers excellent teaching and learning activities throughout."
"[This] is an extremely well researched and informative textbook. The information is presented to the students in a clear manner. . . . The range of the topics covered in this Foundations of Education textbook is extensive."
"Ornstein and Levine have compiled a comprehensive survey of material important to building a knowledge base for professional practice. It is based on sound scholarship and offers students the opportunity to learn and to think critically about information necessary to meet the standards and guidelines set forth by numerous accrediting and governmental agencies. My overall opinion of this textbook is that it is the best one available to meet the needs of my students and program. . . . It presents the information without editorial (or authorial) comment and I appreciate that stance."
