Overview

So You Want to Be a Teacher?: Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century / Edition 1


The underlying and thoroughly integrated premise of this text is to help students uncover whether they are a "good fit" for the teaching profession. In Part I, the author asks students to reflect on why they want to teach and to consider who they are, and whether "who they are" is a teacher. In Parts II, III, and IV, the text moves on to cover the traditional topics of the course; through both the pedagogy and the exposition, the author continues to ask readers to reflect on how the information she is providing affects their decision to pursue teaching.Along with the theme of the text, the author stresses the two most important topics in K-12 education today and their impact in the classroom: the effect of technology and the Internet on teaching and learning, and the importance of understanding the roles that diversity and culture play in the lives of teachers and their students.
