In an attempt to expand upon traditional course frameworks, this new book examines American education using a two-fold approach—chronological and conceptual. The four units comprise a journey from earliest Native American informal instruction to today's multimedia classrooms. Chapter titles reflect this chronological approach, while content within chapters presents material thematically, addressing the education of social groups as it evolved within each time period. Emphasis throughout is on the social history of education—kindergarten through secondary—with particular attention paid to race, sex, ethnicity, social class, language, and special needs. For practicing and future teachers—a solid foundation on which to build an understanding of a rapidly changing, increasingly diverse educational landscape, and a broad-spectrum perspective on the challenges faced by today's educators.
