More About This Textbook

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.

  • New design and organization! Chapters are organized into parts to underscore links between chapter topics. New part closing sections include Benchmarks, Online Activities, and Developing a Professional Portfolio features.
  • New! Your Teaching Life in Practice feature occurs in every chapter and presents important topics that teachers face every day in their classrooms.
  • New! Technology in Practice features present many different classroom applications for technology available to teachers.
  • New! Chapter 11 focuses on standards and assessment, issues that are gaining importance to all teachers.
  • New! INTASC Correlations relate the chapter-end ReflectivePractice features to INTASC standards, exposing readers to the professional standards they will follow.
  • New! Preparing for the PRAXIS section at the front of the book provides students with a brief tutorial of FAQs, test-taking tips, and sample test questions.
  • Completely Revised! Cultural Awareness features highlight the influence of diversity on classroom practice.
  • Completely Revised! Issues in School Reform features present trends in school reform and how they help to improve life in U.S. schools.
