Review:

Teaching is a complex endeavor. The Society, the Classroom, and Instructional Practices provides a comprehensive collection of ideas and approaches to inform teaching and learning for the 21st century. The authors offer rich discussion of pertinent issues that impact schools nd classrooms. The work offers practical information for professionals that will assist them in understanding the multifaceted nature of schooling and how issues potentially affect the learning environment. This book is a must for teachers and education professionals who want to be successful practitioners. (David K. Pugalee, University of North Carolina, Charlotte)

Twentieth century secondary teachers have been primarily masters of the content they teach. But the issues of the 21st century require teachers to expand their domain of expertise. When students have easy access to content experts outside the school, the teacher's role and instructional practices must change. This work is essential to preparing secondary teachers who understand their larger roles in instruction. (Catherine B. Smith, manager, Professional Preparation and Development Unit, Michigan Deptartment of Education)

This text is outstanding in linking the issues and basis of society and its commitment, or lack thereof, to schools, schooling, and the decisions made by the classroom practitioner and how they might affect the outcome of classroom instruction. This text connects the lives and educational needs of the secondary students/persons with the society that they are part of, while addressing the complexity of the relationship of instruction and the learner in the milieu of the society as a whole. Further, it,cogently, discusses issues?such as gender, social class, the power structure, race/ethnicity, and inequality of educational opportunity?in the culture of the United States of America. The text focuses on the results of current research as the basis for decision-making about instructional methodology and strategies.. (Francis D. Silvernail, retired, associate professor of education, Department of Education, College of Staten Island of the City University of New York (CUNY))

In this book, an inspired cadre of scholars addresses critical issues in education that are at the center of modern schooling. Both current and future secondary-level teachers will do well to heed these authors as they struggle to make sense of an ever increasingly complex classroom environment. (Daniel B. Coupland, assistant professor of education, Hillsdale College)
