Overview

Becoming an EC-6 Teacher in Texas / Edition 2

This is the only introduction to teaching text that is specifically built around the new Texas standards for teacher certification. It is also the only Texas-specific book that combines practice with solid grounding in theory (unlike available practice TExES books that provide only limited theoretical information). With Nath and Cohen's text as their guide, students will pass the Texas certification test—and also learn a great deal about effective teaching techniques.
