Read an Excerpt

You may not have thought much about the diverse, potentially competing roles you will play out in the classroom. When you work with learners, you will be expected to establish an appropriate balance between

  • Teaching young people to behave appropriately in groups while, at the same time, developing a personal relationship with each member of your class (Cuban, 2001);
  • Promoting the value of individualism while, at the same time, encouraging commitment to the larger community's shared perspectives;
  • Encouraging learners to master long-standing approaches to problems while, simultaneously, nurturing their abilities to engage reality in. creative ways; and
  • Presenting content that you deem to be essential and, at the same time, preparing learners for mandatory assessments that may focus on content that you consider less important.

How you navigate among these varying expectations will depend on your teaching situation, your academic background, and your personal values. Your responses may change over the course of your teaching career. Variations in your approaches will be driven by changes in learners, legislation, community expectations, and your store of personal knowledge.

Education demands smart, altruistic teachers. If school districts were to post notices to attract the kinds of people they want to hire, the signs might read: "Wanted: Teachers Who Lead." If you seek a career free from the confrontations of contemporary life, choose another line of work. As a teacher, you need to act as a proactive leader. Today teachers are becoming ever more involved in making decisions about budgets, school management, and other areas that go well beyondtraditional concerns for instructional planning.

In preparing the seventh edition of Teaching Today, we have emphasized topics relevant to the world you will enter as a classroom teacher. In addition to basic information about these topics, you will find material designed to help you analyze, reflect, and decide. You can expand your understanding of these issues by going beyond the text to pursue information at a number of World Wide Web sites that we recommend. You also will find useful the extensive glossary of specialized terms that follows the final chapter.

You may live in a state that requires you to take the Praxis II examination as a qualification for a teaching certificate, credential, or license. (You will find detailed information about the Praxis exams in Chapter 1, "Education in an Age of Change.") At the end of each chapter, you will be invited to reflect on what you have learned and to think about how the content might help you prepare for the Praxis II examination.

In your effort to make content from this text part of your own professional-knowledge base, consider starting and maintaining a personal initial development portfolio. An initial-development portfolio provides a means to record important new information, highlight key points you wish to remember, and reflect on ways to use this new content as you prepare for your teaching career. At the end of each chapter, you will be prompted to consider how newly introduced content might be incorporated into your initial-development portfolio. (You will find detailed information about initial-development portfolios in Chapter 1.)

The end-of-chapter materials related to preparing for Praxis II and your initial-development portfolio are reminders that, to derive maximum benefit from this text, you need to engage new information actively. The more you reflect on the content and integrate it into what you already know, the better the information will serve you. We hope your work with this text and the other experiences you encounter in your preparation program will enhance your ability to think carefully about educational issues and will help you grasp key characteristics of teaching and schooling. ORGANIZATION OP THIS TEXT

Earlier editions of Teaching Today have been used both by undergraduate and graduate students. We prepared the book for use in introduction-to-education classes, introduction-to-teaching classes, foundations-of-education classes, school-curriculum classes, issues-in-education classes, and problems-in-education classes. This edition organizes content under four major headings. The title of each provides a context for the chapters it includes.

Part 1 is titled "The Profession." Chapter 1 focuses on the changing nature of the profession. To illustrate teachers' many responsibilities, there is a useful description of a teacher's typical day. Chapter 2 emphasizes the phases in a teacher's professional development, the use of teaching portfolios to document performance, and the important support roles that professional organizations play. The chapter also briefly introduces several nonteaching roles in education. Chapter 3 explores the impact of numerous reform initiatives and recent legislation that is changing the nature of what schools and teachers do.

Part 2 focuses on "Learners and Their Needs." Chapter 4 provides important descriptive information about characteristics of learners in today's schools. There is an emphasis on how certain learner variables may affect school performance. Chapter 5 explores issues associated with multiculturalism. Specific examples of programs that have served culturally diverse young people are introduced. Chapter 6.describes legal requirements and instructional approaches relevant to appropriately serving learners with special needs and gifted learners.

Part 3 centers on "Teaching and Assessing." Chapter 7 introduces curriculum orientations, state curriculum standards, and information related to the influence that standardized tests have on content selection. In addition, basic elementary and secondary curriculum patterns are described. Chapter 8 presents approaches associated with effective instruction. Content includes information related to active teaching, constructivist teaching, ways to achieve clarity of communication, and characteristics of good questions. This chapter also includes descriptions of teacher-learner observation instruments that can be used in the classroom. Chapter 9 focuses on the important issue of classroom management and discipline. Specific suggestions for an escalating series of teacher responses, varied according to the seriousness and frequency of the disruptive behavior, are included. Chapter 10 describes approaches to assessment, measurement, evaluation, and grading. In addition to more traditional approaches, there is extensive treatment of learner portfolios.

Part 4 focuses on "Shapers of Today's Educational World." Chapter 11 provides information that illustrates how varying philosophical perspectives affect attitudes toward specific curricula and instructional practices. The chapter also describes how attendance at specific schools, family attitudes, perspectives of certain religious and social organizations, and membership in certain ethnic and cultural groups influence patterns of learner behavior in the classroom. Chapter 12 traces important historical influences that have helped shape practices in today's schools. Information includes descriptions of European and non-European influences and important developments in the evolution of American education. Chapter 13 focuses on the important role technology plays in today's schools. Content includes information related to technology standards, technology's influence on behavior, and promises and challenges associated with the introduction of new technologies in today's schools. Chapter 14 explores learners' rights and responsibilities, and their legal implications for teachers. The chapter discusses several relevant court cases.

At the end of the book, you will find a complete glossary. It includes helpful definitions of all terms introduced in the text. NEW TO THIS EDITION

USING THE TEXT

We believe that schoolteachers should take personal control over the instructional process. They should not feel obliged to follow the numerical order of chapters in their texts. Similarly, we encourage instructors who use this text to follow this logic and to assign students to read chapters in an order that makes sense in light of how they have designed their courses. We have written chapters in this book to be "freestanding." That is, no chapter has content that is prerequisite to that introduced in any other chapter.
