Description


Becoming a Teacher in the New Society: Bringing Communities and Classrooms Together uses a critical, problem-posing format to present information pertinent to introductory courses for the study of education. This book is written for all educators who are investigating teaching and learning in a world that demands of its teachers new knowledge and understanding. In addition to the foundational information, there is attention given to global perspectives with an emphasis on family and community. The essays and other primary source information are enhanced by poetry, fiction, and suggested activities focusing on the arts. The book is appropriate for use both in the university classroom and the larger community of inservice education.
