Teaching in America, Second Edition was written to meet preservice teachers' desire for an active learning text that presents current ideas about teaching in America today along with the underpinning foundations of education. The readers reflect and respond on the page to issues raised in the chapter thereby actively constructing knowledge and ideas about teaching. Within the narrative of each chapter, readers have an average of ten opportunities to interact directly with the book through reflection and writing. This approach enables future teachers to make the transition from thinking about being a teacher to identifying with the profession as an active, confident participant. It is the goal of Teaching in America to build in the reader a firm knowledge of education as an institution and as a career, knowledge of teaching competencies, and knowledge of issues in education. A new chapter, Technology, Teaching and Learning, provides up-to-date technology information and applications to teaching, helping teachers to become technologically literate and apply technology to their teaching. Multicultural themes have been integrated into all chapters, helping to better inform and prepare future teachers to teach today's diverse student population. For pre-service and in-service teachers.
