Becoming a Teacher, Seventh Edition, takes a straightforward look at what it means to be a professional teacher in today's rapidly changing, high-stakes environment of education. Building upon a strong “mentoring” message that has long been the tradition of Becoming a Teacher, the Seventh Edition helps students make difficult decisions about their teaching future by fostering an awareness of the realities of teaching in America today. This no-nonsense approach provides students with the tools and information necessary to answer the questions, “What does it take to become a professional teacher?” and “Do I want to teach?” Along the way, the authors provide practical perspectives for meeting the challenges of teaching.

New to this Edition:

  • Special features at the beginning and end of each of the book's four parts explore four “Big Picture” issues facing education today: teacher resiliency, teaching in socially toxic environments, the changing demographic of today's students, and preparing a literate populace.
  • Revised “Meeting the Standards” features in each chapter provide prospective teachers with guidelines for acquiring the skills necessary to meet the performance standards developed by INTASC, NCATE, PRAXIS, and NBPTS, and for meeting the accountability criteria contained in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.
  • A new “Case for Reflection” feature in each chapter presents problem-solving situations to resolve, providing readers an opportunity to apply new learning to develop practical solutions in specific problem-solving contexts.
  • A new "Teachers' Voices” feature in each chapter presents short, teacher-authored articles illustrating how teachers apply chapter content to actual classroom situations and providing readers firsthand insights into real-world challenges teachers face.
  • New in MyLabSchool! Parkay E-book with integrated pre- and post-tests that generate individualized study plans to help students focus their attention and efforts where they’re needed most.
