Introduction to Teaching: Making a Difference in Student Learning, Second Edition is the ideal text for aspiring teachers. Acclaimed authors Gene Hall, Linda Quinn, and Donna Gollnick thoroughly prepare teacher education candidates to make a difference as teachers, presenting first-hand stories and evidence-based practices while offering a student-centered approach to learning. The authors target one of the biggest challenges facing many of today’s schools―making sure that all students are learning―and help teachers make student learning the primary focus in all that they do. From true-to-life challenges that teachers will face (high-stakes testing, student learning assessments, low teacher retention, Common Core Standards) to the inspiration and joy they will discover throughout their teaching careers, this text paints a realistic picture of the real life of a teacher.

“[I would be] likely [to adopt this textbook]. I like the ‘extras’ besides just a standard textbook. The beginning and end-of-chapter features are very appealing. We are meeting currently to try to breathe life back into our Introduction course...which has become so bogged down in content knowledge, we have ignored curiosity and problem solving skills. This textbook appears to be on the same mission.” (Dana Hilbert)
“I am very likely to adopt this book for a course; I have enjoyed the review and feel that it would best meet the needs of my students in the foundations of education courses.” (Amanda Lee Glaze)
“I would very likely adopt this textbook for my course. It presents a wealth of information without being overwhelming for beginning education students. I also really like the pedagogical features. They give the students plenty of opportunities to critically engage with the material.” (Tanisha Billingslea)
