9780205570706: Teaching in America (5th Edition)

Teaching in America, 5/e, is a hands-on, practical text that provides preservice teachers with comprehensive and current information about teaching in today’s diverse American classrooms.

 

The Fifth Edition promises to be the most dynamic and practical to date. With a complete redesign; a host of new research, features, and exercises; as well as a new feature box designed specifically to show pre-service teachers how use observation effectively, this text is sure to draw attention beyond its steady and loyal base. Its “working-text” style continues to provide preservice teachers with extensive opportunities to interact with the text while establishing both the foundations of American education and a clear picture of the realities of contemporary teaching. Its increased emphasis on accountability woven throughout the text and the marginal references to INTASC standards raise the readers’ awareness of key initiatives in education in the 21st century.
