He is also the founding director of the Center for Character and Social Responsibility. A former high school English teacher, Dr. Ryan was a tenured faculty member at the University of Chicago and the Ohio State University before moving to Boston University. In 1970 Ryan was granted an Alfred North Whitehead Fellowship at Harvard University. Since then he received the Boston University Scholar-Teacher Award, the National Award of Distinction by the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education, and the Paideia Society's Award for Educational Excellence. Ryan has written and edited 22 books and over 100 articles on teacher and character education. He is also the author of TEACHING FOR STUDENT LEARNING: BECOMING A MASTER TEACHER (with James M.

James M.

As Dean of the Curry School of Education, he led the initiative to restructure the teacher education program, moving to an innovative five-year program that integrates the study of arts and sciences, professional education, and field experiences.

He is also series editor of the Educator's Guide series (Cengage). His books and articles address the areas of teacher education, supervision of teachers, case studies in teacher education, and technology and teacher education. Cooper has also received many honors, including a Fulbright-Hays Award for Lecturing in Portugal and recognition as one of the nation's Distinguished Teacher Educators from the Association of Teacher Educators.

Review:

"As a secondary classroom teacher for 19 years....I can attest to the 'real world' focus of this text. It deals with the reality of classroom teaching in today's society. It doesn't sugar coat or idealize the teaching profession, but prepares the student teachers for the day-to-day rewards and challenges. It is a truthful and practical text, one filled with inspiration, humor, and examples of what the teacher can expect when he/she enters his/her classroom."
