9780133563283: Your Introduction to Education: Explorations in Teaching

This title is only available as a loose-leaf version with Pearson eText, or an electronic book.  

 

Your Introduction to Education, 3/e takes future teachers into an authentic classroom to empower them to explore content and classrooms, reflect on what they’re learning, and develop a sense of the kind of teacher they aspire to be. In these pages, readers discover whether teaching is for them and, if so, what they may be like as teachers tomorrow. Here readers explore the concepts through the real-life experiences of 10 teachers and 12 students from four schools across the urban, suburban, and rural landscape of the United States. It’s a real-life demonstration of what teaching is really like through classroom scenarios and person-to-person interactions, both by word and through hours of video. Today’s current, relevant issues in education are discussed in engaging ways, and both the art and service of teaching and the science of teaching are presented in an accessible writing style that grabs and keeps students’ interest as they move through the concepts they will encounter in their own classrooms one day.
