Overview

Completely revised and rewritten, the Fourth Edition of this leading text takes the theme of the "Teacher as a Professional" and presents a balance between the core topics in foundations and their practical classroom applications.

This entirely new and streamlined edition retains its comprehensive range of foundations topics while focusing on accessibility and relevance to pre-service teachers, as well as an emphasis on social issues and trends in schools. Exciting pedagogical features focus on professional practice, technology, national standards, professional portfolios, and other topics. A new chapter on standards and assessment addresses the prevalence of these issues in teachers' lives. A bonus section on the PRAXIS Series and state licensure offers FAQs, test-taking tips, and practice questions. This special bonus feature on the PRAXIS Series is currently located at the fron of the book.
