TEACHING in the REAL WORLD
What reviewers have to say about Teaching in the Real World:
“The e-mail exchange- supplemented by tips, hints, and checklists – is an interesting, innovative format to get the readers attention. The text becomes very personal and real and provides great personal reflection opportunities.”
Lois Draina, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, Education Department
“This text is written in a very user-friendly style. It is realistic and well-written in a readable format to provide sound advice and suggestions during the student teaching experience.”
Elaine Pierce Chakonas, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Teacher Education

“[The] innovation of this book is [that] it takes its own favored constructivist theory and applies it to the way that the field/internship relationship should work.”
Carole Bryd, Ph.D.
Florida Community College at Jacksonville
“The author does an excellent job of organizing and writing sequentially about what student teachers will experience, “normalizing” it, and making it real and relevant to their daily lives as a teacher, both in and outside of the classroom.”
Linda F. Balog, Ph.D.
Coordinator of the Professional Program in School and Community Health Education and Promotion Department of Health Science
SUNY, College at Brockport
A truly worthwhile book! Every student teacher and every new teacher should read this book. I would even recommend it to experienced teachers who will not only recognize the strategies they use, but will take heart from the daily challenges they face. Written in a practical, realistic manner, it discusses not only educational strategies but issues that teachers face everyday in our urban schools - issues that are not usually covered in education courses, such as homelessness, hunger, addictions, etc. I highly recommend this book for all teachers to read.
