Why Teach?
Who Are Today’s Students?
What Makes a Good Teacher?

Educational Foundations: An Anthology of Critical Readings, Second Edition answers these questions and more, providing an exciting alternative to other foundations textbooks. This anthology is aimed at students about to enter the teaching profession, those new to the profession, and anyone interested in carefully examining schools and schooling.

In this Second Edition, editors Alan S. Canestrari and Bruce A. Marlowe add new essays by classic and contemporary policy shapers and teachers. The readings are bold and refreshing, and their authors eschew unquestioning compliance. By taking a hard look at traditional educational practice, the contributors to this anthology serve as models for the kind of reflective practitioners that its editors hope that students will become while in the field. For a complete list of contributors, please see the Table of Contents.

Alan Canestrari
Alan S. Canestrari, Ed.D, Boston University, a veteran social studies practitioner and Professor of Education at Roger Williams University, is co-editor (with Bruce Marlowe) of Educational Foundations: An Anthology of Critical Readings (Sage) and Educational Psychology in Context: Readings for Future Teachers (Sage). Educational Foundations was awarded the 2005 American Educational Studies Association Critics Choice Award. Canestrari had a long career in public schools and universities as a history teacher, department chair, adjunct professor at Rhode Island College, and mentor in the Brown University Masters of Teaching Program.

Review:

“The authors have assembled a wonderful collection of classic and new essays by some of the masters in the field. You will experience the exhilarating highs and crushing lows that teaching offers. If you can’t get engaged by these essays, check your pulse to make sure you still have one.”

(Gerald W. Bracey )
