Overview

Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC) standards state that teachers are expected to be reflective, knowledgeable, highly skilled, and creative professionals who are lifelong learners, and who have the ability to think critically about a multitude of issues. With, SCHOOL: AN INTRODUCTION TO EDUCATION, Third Edition, authors Edward Ebert and Richard Culyer have developed a compelling and timely approach that presents teacher-candidates with a thorough overview of what it means to be an effective professional educator. The authors engage both the critical and creative thinking of teacher-candidates while encouraging discussion, reflection, and participation in the educational enterprise. First-person accounts and helpful strategies from prominent educators and in-service teachers, along with TeachSource Videos and activities linked to InTASC standards, provide insight into the realities of being a teacher in today's rapidly changing society. The result is a book that empowers teacher-candidates as pre-professionals and, ultimately, as instructional leaders.
