Overview

In the Classroom: An Introduction to Education / Edition 3

In The Classroom addresses the growing need for a text that provides coverage of both the foundations of modern education and their application to the methods of teaching in an integrated fashion. Using a research-based approach,the authors skillfully interweave explanations of educational theory,concepts,and controversies with anecdotes and viewpoints that personalize and enliven the text discussion. The Guide to Observation and Participation is a highly successful,inexpensive,short,hands-on,how-to student teacher guide. It is a sequenced compilation of many tools and techniques used by effective in-service teachers,presented step-by-step— everything from classroom maps to a daily lesson plan format,to a pre-planning small group checklist. New topics in the third edition include: global education,Hebrew and Christian education,use of the Internet,emotional IQ,school choice and magnet schools,business in education,and legal issues. New case studies boxed features in each chapter offer real-life situations. Core information is now highlighted throughout chapters to help students focus.
