As the bestseller in the introductory education market, Those Who Can, Teach is a current, dynamic, reader-friendly text that helps students make informed decisions about entering teacher education programs.
The text uses multiple sources to provide high interactivity, while the authors' direct, conversational voice invites students to reflect on the problems and satisfactions of teaching. The Ninth Edition delves deeply into national, state, and local educational policies to familiarize teachers with the impact that policy will have on their everyday lives in classrooms.
"The text focuses on motivation for teaching and what the teaching life will entail—students, curriculum, financing, ethics, governance, etc. . . . It is very readable and focuses on the current state of education today. It also has a central theme of why students might be choosing to teach which is very appropriate for our first year students."Melanie Felton, College of Saint Mary
"I taught the course for the first time this year and found the textbook invaluable! It is very appropriate for the level of students in my course. "Patricia Blaine, Western Kentucky Community and Technical College
